    Tour Description:

    The Highland and Whisky Tour from InvernessThis 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!

    The Highland and Whisky Tour from InvernessYour 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 it's quaint fishermen's cottages, crow-stepped houses and grand sandstone mansions. The Highland and Whisky Tour from InvernessThis attractive town was the major port for the North of Scotland and it's 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.


    * When the Distillery is closed there will be an extended stop in Beauly.
