What to expect
Greet your kilt-clad guide and small group in central Inverness and hop aboard the climate-controlled minibus for the ride to Loch Ness. Here you just might catch sight of Scotland’s most famous resident—Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. Admire the medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle on the shores of the loch. Your next stop is the Glen Ord Distillery, where you might opt to sample some of the fine malt whisky crafted here. At Culloden Battlefield, a must for 'Outlander' fans, learn the dark story of how the Jacobite rising ended. Then travel back in time to 4,000-year-old Clava Cairns, a Bronze Age cemetery. Your guide drops you back where you began.

Highlands fun!
The tour in the highlands was excellent! Our guide, Craig, was very knowledgeable and fun to be with all day. The only thing I would suggest would be to speak more towards guests when we’re outside, it was loud at times and we had a hard time hearing.Favorite parts were the highland cows, Clava Cairns, and the Culloden battlefield. We both loved this tour and saw so many great highlights!

A tour not to be missed.
This trip was worth every penny. It was very informative, with our driver/tour guide Drew taking time to answer any questions asked. His interaction with each passenger was excellent and his practical help most appreciated.
I would highly recommend this tour.

Unforgettable tour!
Aug 2021
Our tour of the Loch Ness region and the Culloden Battlefield was unforgettable. We had already read and watched about the history of Scotland and the struggle of the Scots for their freedom and independence, so we enjoyed every moment and the explanations given by our guide Bill, who demonstrated great knowledge and passion for the subject. We also love his tips on Scotch whiskey tasting. It was definitely a great tour and worth every minute.

Highly recommended! The booking was easy and the actual trip was fabulous. Our guide Bill was lovely, a treasure trove of information. His passion for the history of Scotland was obvious and he brought it all alive for us. He even enthused our teens, a feat indeed! Thank you for a wonderful trip.

Best day of our trip to the Highlands
Aug 2021
Hands down our favourite day of our whole holiday. Bill was a fantastic, hugely knowledgeable and personable guide and brought all of the history to life. We would happily have spent a whole weekend exploring the Highlands guided by Bill if such a tour existed! We learnt so much and really enjoyed the whole day - couldn't recommend the Happy Tour enough. My partner and I were travelling by public transport, and were really pleased that the tour took us to all of the places we had pinned to visit and some fantastic foody locations too! Joining the tour allowed us to not only see all of the spots in one day, but get so much more information on each than we could have achieved on our own. Fantastic personal touches, brilliant guide and a brilliant day we'll be sure to remember : )

Thanks Kate for the fab review for Bill. It's lovely to sit back, relax and let someone else take the strain of the driving. Bill knows a vast amount of history and loves when our guets get really engaged in the tour. We hope you captured some great photos to go with your great memories. Slainte mhath!

Highlander Loch Ness and Culloden battlefield tour
We had a great tour with Drew our driver/guide, he was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited. It was great that he never rushed us back to the bus like some, as I have a tendancy to want to take photos when everyone has moved on. I would recommend this tour if you want to get to see a little of the history/beautiful landscapes around Inverness.

Thanks Audrey for giving Drew such a lovely review. We always try to pace the tour to the guests wishes as there's nothing worse than feeling flustered when having to hurry. That's the beauty of the small group tour. Hope you got some great photos. Haste ye back.
