What to expect

The tour will depart from Inverness, and you will make our way to the little village of Drumnadrochit which lies close to the banks of the mysterious Loch Ness. Learn more about the loch and its famous resident from your fascinating driver-guide. As you journey along the banks of the loch, you can listen to the stories and anecdotes relative to the history of this stunning region.

Your next stop will be the town of Beauly. The name derives from the French, Beau Lieu (meaning beautiful place), and it was named by the monks who built a priory here in the 13th Century. As you continue your journey to Muir of Ord, you will have the chance to visit the Glen Ord Malt Whisky Distillery for a behind-the-scenes tour, followed by a whisky tasting. 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 beautiful town was the major port for the North of Scotland and it has retained much of its history 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 these amazing mammals can be spotted.
