Start your Scottish Highland experience with a journey to the scenic Black Isle crossing Moray Firth from Inverness. From there, travel to the beautiful estuary of the Cromarty Firth, one of the largest areas of pristine mudflats in UK, and discover the significance of the village for waders and wildfowl.

Travel back to the past in Cromarty, a sleepy fishing village, and explore its old-fashioned fishermen's cottages, crow-stepped houses and grand sandstone mansions. Once a major port for the North of Scotland, Cromarty retains its unique character with the help of conservation projects.

Another highlight of your Scottish Highland experience is Moray Firth, traveling through the scenic villages of Rosemarkie and Fortrose separated by Chanonry Point extending into the Moray Firth. As Moray Firth is home to a community of bottlenose dolphins, take delight in dolphin spotting from Chanonry Point, a great vantage point for spotting dolphins.

Continue to the town of Beauly and get a chance to visit Glen Ord Malt Whisky Distillery at Muir of Ord. Learn about the process of making whisky as you tour around the distillery and enjoy a tasting of their end product.

Lastly, visit the village of Drumnadrochit, which lies close to the banks of the fascinating Loch Ness. Discover the mysteries surrounding the mystifying Loch Ness as you learn more about the loch and its famous resident at the Loch Ness Exhibition & Centre.
