You will then be collected from Urquhart by your guide and coach and make your way to Inverness where you will have an hour to enjoy sights such as Inverness Castle, St Andrew's Cathedral, The Old Victorian Market and there's even an option to visit Highland House of Fraser and see kilts being made (there's a small charge of £2.50 for this if you decide to do it). Inverness is also a great place to grab some lunch and we'll be happy to make suggestions as to where to go or book you into a restaurant.
We will then depart Inverness and take the scenic drive passed Culloden Battlefield on our way to Cawdor Castle.
Once at Cawdor Castle, you will have 1.5hrs to peruse the castle, gardens and grounds. They also serve delicious food, teas, coffees and home baking.
We will depart from Cawdor Castle making our way back for the port taking the scenic route over the Black Isle, passing the Cromarty Firth with opportunities to potentially see seals basking in the sunshine (depending on the tides and if the sun decides to come out).
