Exclusive Scottish Highlands

The Highlands of Scotland never disappoint with their sweeping vistas, medieval towns, and historic castles. During your 6-hour small group, intimate tour you will have the chance to appreciate the beauty and history of the Highlands up close.

Your journey will take you to view the famous Loch Ness. This loch (lake) has a depth of 755 feet, making it the largest loch by volume in the British Isles. It is also home to the legendary Loch Ness Monster. Pass by the 13th century Urquhart Castle and discover its role in the Wars of Scottish Independence.

Stop for lunch in Inverness, a centuries-old strategically located city regarded as the capital of the Highlands or stay on the shore Loch Ness and dine at the gorgeous Dores Inn.

Your journey continues as you arrive at the Clava Cairns, a Bronze Age circular chamber tomb complex of passage graves and standing stones. Look closely at the 4,000 year old stones to see the ring and cup marks; these petroglyphs were common at ancient burial sites and their mathematical proportions suggest an unknown prehistoric code.

Conclude your tour at the newly-restored Culloden Battlefield, the site of the most famous battle of Britain, The Culloden Battle of April 1746 turned out to be much more than just a skirmish between Scotland and England and was full of betrayals, backstabbing, and broken promises. Walk through the state-of-the-art visitor center with its film, exhibits, animations and viewing area then head into the battlegrounds with portable GPS audio-visual guides that will tell you what happened in specific areas.

From there you will relax with a scenic trip back to port as you absorb the places and history you experienced along with the beautiful Highlands. Reserve your spot on this epic adventure today.
