Safe | Personal | Exclusive | Bubble Tours by Airts & Pairts. Our Forres Bubble Tour is a private bespoke tour in your personal social bubble. A socially-distanced experience for you and your loved ones only.

Witches, Digestives & a Pickled Admiral: Almost a thousand years ago, Macbeth, King of Alba, ruled over Scotland. Forres Castle was his stronghold in his ancestral heartland of Moray. Only a hill is left of the castle nowadays, but Macbeth’s story was, with a bit of artistic license though, immortalised by William Shakespeare. Still, there is a hill just outside Forres, where the real king is said to have met the three witches. Whether those were the same women to whom the witches’ stone is dedicated is not known. Forres is also the birthplace of Sir Alexander Grant, the creator of McVities's Digestives and was the home of a doctor who became known through a rather special “preservation campaign”.

This private walking tour takes you along Forres High Street into Grant Park and then uphill to the Nelson Tower from where we will enjoy the magnificent views before we head to the Witches Stone and then onwards to Sueno’s Stone, the tallest Pictish stone in the whole of Scotland.

Highlights:

  • Forres Tolbooth
  • The Sunken Garden
  • Cluny Hill
  • Nelson’s Tower
  • Sueno’s Stone
  • The Witches Stone
