One Day Highland Discovery Tour inc. Cawdor Castle

Discover a wonderful flavour of the Scottish Highlands with a great tour of beautiful scenery and ancient history that includes Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Clava Cairns and Cawdor Castle

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.

Urquhart Castle and 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.

Culloden Battlefield and Visitors Centre

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.

Clava Cairns and Standing Stones

Leaving Clava Cairns we take a short drive to Cawdor Castle. 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.

Cawdor Castle

Following Cawdor Castle we return back to Inverness enjoying the beautiful views of the Moray Firth estuary with the distant backdrop of stunning Highland mountains.
