Legendary monsters, mystical standing stones, and history-changing battles: this tour is the best way to see the Scottish Highlands in a day.

Places you explore


Loch Ness - Go on an optional boat cruise or wander around this alluring and eerie loch.

Clava Cairns – An ancient site of tombs, stone circles, and ruins. It may also have inspired the famous ‘time portal’ in the Outlander TV series.

Culloden Battlefield – In less than an hour, around 1,500 men died in this battle. Explore the battlefield and learn how this tragedy came to pass.

Grampian Mountains - Enjoy classic views of one of Scotland’s most mesmerising mountain ranges.



After leaving Aberdeen, you have a short stop to take a photo of the iconic Glenfiddich Distillery, admire Balvenie Castle, and grab a coffee.

You then venture through the heart of Speyside and arrive at Loch Ness for an optional boat trip. Onboard the ship, you travel over the widest and deepest part of the loch and get a fine view of Urquhart Castle.

Back on dry land, it’s time to travel deep into the past at Clava Cairns. This spot is situated in a gorgeous green grove and boasts well-preserved ancient burial tombs. They even say this spot was the inspiration for Outlander’s Craigh na Dun.

You then continue to Culloden Battlefield, the location of the final Jacobite Rising. It’s an eerie, flat, tragic landscape that can put the history of Scotland into perspective.

You have a comfort break within the gorgeous Cairngorms National Park before you reach Aberdeen in the evening.
