Full description

Explore the beauty of the Scottish highlands on this guided tour. Take the opportunity to explore local villages, visit a whisky distillery, see the adorable Puffin, and more, on this unforgettable tour experience.

Depart Inverness and head straight for the historic village of Findhorn for a walk along the gorgeous beach. Trail the coast to Portknockie, where Bow Fiddle Rock, a dramatic sea arch, sits just off the shore. 

Afterward, continue the village-hop to picture-perfect Cullen, home of the famous soup, Cullen Skink. Explore, eat lunch, and get excited about the next stop. 

Take a walk at Troup Head Nature Reserve and look out for puffins and sea birds; you might even be lucky enough to spot marine life.

Then, journey inland on the Malt Whisky Trail to learn all about single malt production at a Speyside whisky distillery, and judge for yourself whether experience is the best teacher.

Make one final stop at the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands, in the small village of Carrbridge, before returning to Inverness in the evening.

    We had a small group (5ppl) which was great because we could stop to see things on the way that interested us! Of the planned activities m, birding was definitely the highlight. Puffins are hit or miss depending on the time of year, so don’t bank on those. Seeing the other birds was still great! Whisky stop was only a tasting (cost not included), no tour.

    Lovely tour of nature, great guide Elana But the distillery visit was disappointing and unrecommended To come and try some whisky without being able to see the production process and the distillery inside is a waste of time we can drink whisky anywhere without going to distillery
