Overview
There’s no need to worry about hiring a car and navigating Highland roads in right-hand drive on this convenient tour that takes in the infamous Loch Ness and so much more. Let your local guide take the wheel as they explain the history behind those spectacular landscapes—and tell tales of war and monsters too.
Highlights
  • Discover the sweeping landscapes and scenic lochs of the Scottish Highlands
  • See Loch Ness, Culloden Battlefield, prehistoric monuments, and a distillery
  • Make the most of your local guide on a tour with no more than eight people
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 will drop you back where you began.

Bill did an awesome job. Very knowledgeable and attentive. He took time for us to take pictures of what ever we wanted, including the Highland Cows or Hairy Coos.

We only had one full day in Inverness and we were without a car so we plumbed for this tour. There were only three of us on a grey November day but our guide Tony lightened up the day with his amazing knowledge of the places of interest and his humour. We must be the only people

I brought my 82 year old Scottish father on this trip to Scotland! This was our first trip there and we had no idea what to expect on our tour. Billy Gray, our guide, really made this day so special for us, going far above and beyond to show my dad things that would help him

We had Bill as our tour guide. He was hilarious and super informative. We got more than we expected! This was not the Outlanders tour; however, Bill tied a lot of the tour into the Outlander book series. Kudos Bill! That made my wife extremely happy. I personally enjoyed
