    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.

    Across the Black Isle to the Cromarty Firth...

    Your journey through the Highlands starts as you cross the Moray Firth to reach the scenic Black Isle. From there you'll travel to the beautiful estuary of the Cromarty Firth - one of the largest areas of unspoilt mudflats in the UK and an important staging post for waders and wildfowl as they migrate south.

    Back in Time to the Village of Cromarty...

    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.

    Dolphin Spotting in the Moray Firth...

    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.

    Glen Ord Distillery Visit...

    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.*

    Monster Watching and then Home...

    The last visit of the day is 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 at the fascinating Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition. As you return to Inverness along the banks of the loch keep a careful watch, just in case!

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