Half Day Highland Discovery Tour

Half Day Highland Discovery Tour

Our Half Day Highland Discovery 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.

Only a short distance from Culloden are the Bronze Age Clava Cairns and Standing Stones. 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.

Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness Culloden Battlefield Clava Cairns and Standing Stones Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness

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