Highland Discovery Tour inc. Benromach Whisky Distillery
Discover a 'whisky tinged' flavour of the Scottish Highlands with a great tour of scenery and ancient history that includes Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Culloden Battlefield, Clava Cairns and finishes with a ‘dram’ of Scotch Malt Whisky!
Our tour begins at Inverness where we journey along the banks of Loch Ness to the 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 across Loch Ness.
We then travel back to Culloden Battlefield where you explore the dramatic history surrounding Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites. The excellent interactive visitors centre sets the scene of this decisive battle and the Jacobite story before you embark on a poignant walk through Culloden field. Only a short distance from Culloden are the Bronze Age Clava Cairns and Standing Stones. Dating back over 4000 years they are a fascinating glimpse of the very ancient past of the Scottish Highlands.
Leaving Clava we visit Benromach Speyside Whisky Distillery where just three distillers handcrafting their single malt whisky. We enjoy a one hour tour of the distillery followed by a dram of their signature 10 year old Speyside malt whisky. Following Benromach we return back to Inverness enjoying the beautiful views of the Moray Firth estuary with the distant backdrop of stunning Highland mountains.
