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 burial cairns and standing stones of Clava. Dating back over 4000 years they are a fascinating glimpse of the very ancient past of the Scottish Highlands.
Leaving Clava we visit Benromach, the smallest working whisky distillery in Speyside with 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.
Highlights of a Highland Discovery Tour inc. Benromach Distillery
I can promise our tour will include all the wonderful Scottish Highland views shown in the video above (and the whisky)... but maybe not the weather!
Visit Cawdor Castle instead of Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness (May to September only).
This beautifully kept medieval castle, built around a 15th century tower house keep, is rich in Highland history. It also has wonderful gardens to explore after visiting the castle.
