Tour 2) Taste of the North

While most visitors leaving cruise ships berthed in Invergordon looking to explore what this part of the Scottish Highlands has to offer will head south towards the regional capital city of Inverness and legendary Loch Ness, those open to a quieter, slower paced alternative now have the option to join this adults only small group guided coach tour.

On leaving Invergordon this tour will take the main route north alongside the Cromarty Firth, across the Fearn peninsula and Dornoch Firth, before arriving in the picturesque Sutherland coastal county town of Dornoch.

While here guests will have ample time to seek out places like Dornoch Cathedral, the fascinating Historylinks Museum, and the world renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club that sweeps down to the town’s extensive sandy beach.

An opportunity to check out the exclusive local shops shouldn’t be missed. There are adequate options around the town centre to find something to eat and drink, and to ‘spend a penny’.

Once everyone’s checked back on to the coach the tour will continue north to take a tour of the Highland home of infamous Johnnie Walker whisky, the Clynelish Distillery at Brora. Here you’ll be immersed in the story behind the biggest name in Scotch Whisky worldwide, finished off with a fine dram of the sought after spirit.

On reboarding the coach the tour will travel the short distance to the final stop at historic and dramatic Dunrobin Castle, origins of which date back to the middle ages, its current guise having been completed in the early nineteenth century.

The intact castle, the home of Clan Sutherland, and seat of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland, is the most northerly of Scotland’s great houses.

Visitors will have plenty of time to explore the castle that has ample guest facilities on site, including an opportunity to grab a snack in the fine cafe restaurant.

Last but, for sure, not least, a visit to Dunrobin Castle is not complete without gathering in the extensive castle gardens for the falconry display, a marriage of minds between a man and his majestic wild birds.

Finally, once all guests have returned to the coach, the tour will return south to Invergordon with time to spare before departure.
