What to expect

As you leave Inverness, you will journey north and head across the beautiful Black Isle to the Cromarty Firth. During this time, your guide will tell you about the history of the region, including the story of First Duke of Sutherland whose agents were involved in the most notorious of the Highland clearances during the 19th Century. You will then travel through the brooding and magnificent landscape of Caithness, a truly beautiful place filled with some of Scotland’s most fascinating and rare wildlife.

The next stop will be at one of the region’s picturesque harbours, where you will have time at your disposal for lunch. While you enjoy your meal, you will have the chance to learn about the region’s traditional herring fishing industry. After lunch, you will head towards John O’Groats. Once there, you can stroll along the cliff-top path at Duncansby Head and take in the dramatic views of sea stacks and the sea itself. Duncansby is incredibly rich in birdlife including guillemot, kittiwakes and, its most famous residents, puffins (until late July). After your visit to Duncansby, you’ll start your journey back southwards, during which you will travel through more breathtaking scenery and pass through the historic estuary town of Wick, before ending in Inverness.
