Highlander Loch Ness and Culloden Battlefield from Inverness
From US$94.13
Overview
There’s no need to worry about hiring a car and navigating Highland roads in right-hand drive on this convenient tour that takes in the infamous Loch Ness and so much more. Let your local guide take the wheel as they explain the history behind those spectacular landscapes—and tell tales of war and monsters too.
What to Expect
Greet your kilt-clad guide and small group in central Inverness and hop aboard the climate-controlled minibus for the ride to Loch Ness. Here you just might catch sight of Scotland’s most famous resident—Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. Admire the medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle on the shores of the loch.
Your next stop is the Glen Ord Distillery, where you might opt to sample some of the fine malt whisky crafted here. From here, head to Chanonry Point, where you’re likely to see some of the bottlenose dolphins that play in the Moray Firth.
At Culloden Battlefield, a must for Outlander fans, learn the dark story of how the Jacobite rising ended. Then travel back in time to 4,000-year-old Clava Cairns, a Bronze Age cemetery. Your guide will drop you back where you began.
