Enjoy a true Highland adventure as you explore ‘Scotland’s most beautiful glen’ and learn about the battle of Culloden.

Places you explore


Clava Cairns - Travel through winding back roads and discover a 4,000-year-old cemetery.

Culloden – A sad place to visit. It’s the location of a tragic Outlander scene, and a catastrophic battle between Jacobites and Government troops.

Glen Affric - Ancient pines, shimmering lochs, and steep mountains abound in ‘Scotland’s most beautiful glen’.

River Walk - Get close to Scotland's ancient wilderness on a gentle walk along a river.

Beauly Priory - Visit this tucked away priory and learn about the monks of the Highlands.


You first venture to the ancient burial site of Clava Cairns. This Bronze Age ‘graveyard’ has survived four millennia and is a great spot to take atmospheric photos. They say the stone circle here was the inspiration for the Craigh na Dun time portal in the Outlander books.

You then visit Culloden, one of the most important locations in Scottish history. It was here that a 60-year series of uprisings finally ended in a tumultuous battle. You can explore the visitor centre and pay tribute to those who lost their lives at the last ever battle fought on British soil.

You ramble along to Glen Affric and stop off for walks amongst the indigenous Caledonian pine trees. You get the chance to enjoy views over Loch Affric and the mountains beyond, and your driver-guide ensures you go to the best waterfalls and photo spots throughout the afternoon.

Following this, you have the chance to stretch your legs and explore the historic ruins of Beauly Priory. 13th-century French monks called this religious site 'beau lieu', which means 'beautiful place'.

Your final journey takes you along the shores of Loch Ness and back to the centre of Inverness for the early evening.
