From Inverness: Cairngorms National Park and Whisky Tour

1. From Inverness: Cairngorms National Park and Whisky Tour

Depart Inverness and travel through the spellbinding landscapes of Speyside towards Dava Moor for some great views of the Cairngorms National Park. Keep your camera ready to capture the vibrant color of blooming heather if you’re visiting in the summer and autumn months. Visit the forest village of Carrbridge. Here, you can get some refreshments, breathe in the cool mountain air, and wander around the Old Packhorse Bridge. Continue south to Glenmore Forest Park, where you'll have free time to explore. Take an optional walk through the woods to Loch Morlich, which is one of Scotland’s most scenic and popular lochs. You can admire a sandy beach and large and ancient pine trees before you make your way back to the mini-coach. If you prefer not to walk, there’s a café and exhibition at the visitor center. After working up an appetite, head to Aviemore for lunch at your own expense. Finish off with a dram of whisky at Tomatin Distillery*. Savor the aromas of fruit and spice, and feel the passion for community and environment in this little town clustered around the distillery. Leave the remote landscapes behind and start your journey back to Inverness, where you'll arrive in the early evening.

Willie our guide was brilliant, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Lovely to walk to the ruined castle on the loch. The distillery has renovation work being done so we couldn't do the tour.

Rabbies Tours provided a wonderful experience. Our Guide James was very friendly and informative. We learned a lot on this tour and would recommend it.

This was a good introduction to the Scottish Highlands. I shall return when I can spend more time.

Visitati posti meravigliosi, guida molto appassionata! Lo raccomando!

Great tour. Totally worth it. Seana is an amazing guide
