The mystical Loch Ness...

The highlight, of course, is a visit to the world famous Loch Ness; a place full of mystery, where you may just catch a glimpse of one of Scotland's most famous residents – Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster! Marvel at the views of the once mighty medieval stronghold,Urquhart Castle, a testament to the power of Clan Chiefs and Scottish Kings, that now stands as a majestic ruin on the banks of the Loch.

A taste of the Highlands...

Travel through the Black Isle and take in the views of the rolling green hills and rich arable land filled with fields of barley so indicative of the east of Scotland, before sampling of some fine single malt whisky at Glen Ord Distillery, where the locally grown barley is used to produce the uisge beatha (meaning “water of life” in the Gaelic - whisky). We'll visit burgh of Beauly, from the French "beau leau", meaning "beautiful place", and the name is not wrong! Enjoy a stroll through the stunning ancient ruins of Beauly Priory, or visit some of the wonderful local cafes (including an award winning deli) and shops that this mediaeval burgh has to offer. Who knows, perhaps there may be a Highland Cow or two to stop and say hello to?

Live the history...

Visit the emotive and compelling Culloden Battlefield, and hear the chilling story of the conclusion of the Jacobite cause on the site where the last pitched battle fought on the British mainland took place. Afterwards we take you even further back in time into prehistory and explore the ancient and atmospheric monuments at Clava Cairns. Visit the mysterious and intriguing Clootie (Cloth) Well, and stand in the heart of an ancient Highland tradition, before continuing on to Chanonry Point, Fortrose, where it is possible you'll catch a glimpse of a Bottlenose Dolphin or two, that live and play in the Moray Firth.

The North East Highlands of Scotland is rich in folklore, myth, legends and history, which we would love to share with you along the way, so let us help you shape your adventures, create your memories and experience our culture first hand.

We like to keep our tours small and personal, which allows us to spend more time at the fantastic local attractions and offers us an element of flexibility; this is why we prefer to use 8-seater vehicles.
