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 journey along the banks of Loch Ness to the medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle. Here you have time to explore the castle and discover its ancient past along with the fantastic viewpoints looking out across Loch Ness.
After Urquhart Castle we depart for our late afternoon visit to Rogie Falls. Along the way we stop at the scenic village of Beauly where we visit the ruins of its thirteenth century medieval priory.
At Rogie Falls we take a woodland walk and visit the suspension bridge over the Black Water river. From June to September it may be possible to catch the salmon leaping the main falls and fish ladder. After exploring Rogie Falls it is just a short drive back to Inverness.
Highlights of a Highland Discovery Tour inc. Rogie Falls
I can promise our tour will include all the wonderful Scottish Highland views shown in the video above... 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.
