Once you have disembarked and met your guide at the port of Invergordon, or in the City of Inverness, then, your day, your way, will begin.
We will begin by leaving your ship behind us, and traveling through the Black Isle, and onwards towards our first stop of the day, the world famous Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. The castle, situated on a headland overlooking Loch Ness, is one of the largest in Scotland in area. When under attack it was approached from the west and defended by a trench and drawbridge (Photo stop).
From here, we continue to follow Loch Ness south, and then onto the road to the Isle of Skye. We will travel through Glen Sheil, the Five Sisters off Kintail mountain range, and onwards to the most photographed castle in Scotland. The stunning Eilean Donan Castle, situated at the head of 3 Lochs, with majestic mountains surrounding it, is a perfect picture postcard moment.
After lunch, we will depart from here, and travel over the old drovers trail (where my Grandad took the mail from Skye to Inverness by horse and cart), past the stunning Lochcarron and onto Rogie falls and the old Spa town of Strathpeffer.
We will return to your ship in Invergordon, or back to Inverness by 5pm, after a full and fun day touring!
