Clan Cameron Tour inc. Achnacarry Museum and Culloden Battlefield from Inverness

Discover the ancient history of the Clan Cameron in the Scottish Highlands with a tour down the Great Glen that includes Culloden Battlefield, Achnacarry Museum, Fort William and Clan Cameron lands.

Our Clan Cameron tour from Inverness begins at Culloden Battlefield where the Clan Cameron fought for Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) in the Jacobite uprising of 1745-46. Here we take a poignant walk through Culloden field to the Clan Cameron grave marker stone.

Leaving Inverness we follow the ancient geological fault line that cuts through the Highlands – the Great Glen – along the banks of Loch Ness past the medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle towards Spean Bridge.

We pass the site of the last clan battle – the Battle of Mulroy in 1688 between the victorious Camerons (and the Macdonalds of Keppoch) against the Clan Chattan confederation led by the Mackintoshes. Nearby is the beautiful 15th century Cille Choiril church, likely built by a Clan Cameron chief. Following a visit to the stunning Spean Bridge Commando Memorial, we spend the mid-afternoon exploring the ancient history of the Camerons at Achnacarry - home of the Clan Cameron Museum - before returning to Inverness.
