Make your own way to Inverness Bus Station to meet your guide in time for an 8:45 am departure. Traveling aboard a luxury 34-seat mini-coach with on board WC and air-conditioning, set out on the scenic journey through the Scottish Highlands.
The first stop of the day is the Culloden Battlefield, the site of one of the Highlands’ most notorious battles — the Jacobite Uprising, which took place on 16th April 1746.
Continue to Clava Cairns, a Bronze Age cemetery dating back over 4,000 years. Stop at Glenlivet Distillery, where you’ll have chance to shop for whiskies, and learn more about the distillery’s history and the whisky-making process. If you want, enjoy a whisky tasting or sample some whisky cake (own expense) at the café.
We will continue to Knockando Woolmill, a historic mill, which has been producing woven fabrics for over 200 years. Enjoy a tour of the mill, taking a peek at the spinning and weaving machines, and watching the weavers at work, then shop for quality hand-made souvenirs at the shop.
There’s time to make two more stops before returning to Inverness — to the 16th-century Ballindalloch Castle, renowned for its beautiful interiors, antique furnishings, and landscaped gardens, and the village of Carrbridge, known for its historic packhorse bridge.
After an action-packed day, your tour ends back at Inverness Bus Station around 6.45pm.
