Only a 45 minute drive, there are a choice of attractions to visit en route to Inverness.
There’s Tomatin Distillery for a dram of whisky, followed by the Clava Cairns, 4000 years old Bronze Age burial chambers made famous as Craig na Dun in the popular TV series ‘Outlander‘.
Or I can transport you back in time to 16th April 1746 and the atmospheric Culloden Battlefield, where Jacobite followers of Charles Edward Stuart ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’ were defeated by a British Government army, ending the Highland way of life forever. Here I can take you on a walking tour of the battlefield and explain what led up to the battle, the events of that day and what followed.
Just a short drive onwards to Inverness and free time for shopping, or I can also take you on a guided walking tour of the city centre.
Options from Inverness are to drive down the Great Glen to Loch Ness and perhaps catch a glimpse of her famous resident ‘Nessie’ the Loch Ness Monster. Situated overlooking the loch are the iconic, romantic, ruins of Urquhart Castle, familiar to many from postcards and photos of the loch. Again, I can take you on a tour of the castle before continuing along the shores of Loch Ness to the pretty village of Fort Augustus and the Caledonian Canal.
