Scottish Highlands and Hebridean Islands tours from Inverness
Half Day Culloden Battlefield and Urquhart Castle Tour

Half Day Culloden Battlefield and Urquhart Castle Tour

Our Half Day Highland Tour begins at Inverness where we take a short drive to Culloden Battlefield where you explore the dramatic history surrounding Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite campaign through 1745-46. The excellent interactive visitors centre sets the scene of this decisive battle along with the Jacobite story before you embark on a poignant walk through Culloden field.

Culloden Battlefield and Visitors Centre

Only a short distance from Culloden are the Bronze Age burial cairns and standing stones of Clava. These are one of the finest examples of ancient burial cairns that we have in the Scottish Highlands and date back over 4000 years giving us a fascinating glimpse of the very ancient past of the Highlands.

Clava Cairns and Standing Stones

Leaving the Clava Cairns we journey towards the scenic village of Drumnadrochit and visit the nearby medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle. Here you have time to explore the castle, discover its links with so many of the important events in the history of the Highlands, and take advantage of its fantastic viewpoints looking out across Loch Ness.

Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness

After Urquhart Castle we travel along the banks of Loch Ness on our return to Inverness.
