This wonderful one-day tour provides a real taste of the Highlands. It includes a drive through the scenic Black Isle, dolphin spotting by the Moray Firth, monster spotting on Loch Ness and the chance to visit a Malt Whisky Distillery.
We will depart Inverness and make our way to the little village of Drumnadrochit which lies close to the banks of the mysterious Loch Ness. Discover more about the loch and its famous resident from your fascinating driver-guide. As you journey along the banks of the loch keep a careful watch, just in case!
Your next stop is in the attractive town of Beauly. The name derives from the French, Beau Lieu (meaning beautiful place) and it was so named by the monks who built a priory here in the 13th Century. Your journey continues to the Muir of Ord where, if you wish, you can visit Glen Ord Malt Whisky Distillery* for a behind-the-scenes tour followed by a tasting of the end product.
Next, you'll have time to visit the sleepy fishing village of Cromarty. Here you'll feel like you've stepped into the past as you explore its quaint fishermen's cottages, crow-stepped houses and grand sandstone mansions. This attractive town was the major port for the North of Scotland and its character has been retained to this day, thanks to careful conservation work.
From Cromarty you'll travel through spectacular scenery to Rosemarkie and Fortrose. These picturesque villages are separated by Chanonry Point which sticks out into the Moray Firth. The Moray Firth is home to a community of some 130 bottlenose dolphins and Chanonry Point is a popular vantage point from which to spot these amazing mammals, we’ll stop here to hopefully spot the dolphins before we return to Inverness.
- On December 26th the distillery will be closed.
- From May 2020, this tour itinerary will be amended to include scheduled stops at the Clava Cairns and the Robertson Farm
Good value for money. Hassle free.
The tour was very enjoyable, and our tour guide was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Thank you, Vicky, for a great day on and around the Black Isle! And please say hello to the dolphins from us next time you see them.
Nice driverguide who made our excursion enjoyable with her humorous and personal way of taking us around the area, despite the fact that we were only two passengers on the trip, and the rain poured down like buckets.
Malcolm was an excellent guide , gave us lots of interesting information , historical, geological and general about the places we were visiting. He was very considerate and adapted timing and places to stop according to the weather and our wishes. Could not have braved the drive in our campervan and many of the views were magnificent and Applecross itself was stunning in spite of some showers en route.
Loved the tour. Guide was very informative
Loch Ness, Eilean Donan Castle and the Isle of Skye. Experience the very best that this magical country has to offer.
Enjoy a day of scenic beauty as you travel to one of the remotest areas of Scotland - the Applecross Peninsula.
Experience the true spirit of the North East of Scotland with this one-day history and whisky tour.
