Full description
Depart central Inverness and journey to the world-famous Loch Ness, where you will have the option to join a cruise to the ruins of the 13th century Urquhart Castle, or to explore the nearby village of Drumnadrochit. Free time to enjoy lunch in one of the charming local cafés in beautiful Beauly and walk it off exploring Beauly Priory; used in the filming of Outlander. The next stop is a Highland whisky distillery, where you can join an optional tour to learn about whisky production and sample a wee dram.

Listen to tales of the Jacobite rebellions and the brutal Battle of Culloden, on a visit to Culloden Battlefield. Outlander fans will love the mysterious burial chambers and standing stones at Clava Cairns. When you’ve heard the harrowing history behind the Outlander story, you might not want to travel back in time to meet Jamie Fraser after all. Return to Inverness in the early evening.

Fantastic!

Fraser was a great guide. Knew his history, extremely personable and as i have been a guide in the past know that it comes across if you love your job. Fraser loves his job and therefore makes the day more pleasurable. Thank you Fraser Duff! Will be back for the tour up to Skye...

Very good day out with fun guide

Interesting day out with Duffy as our excellent guide. Covered lots of things : Loch Ness, Urquhart castle, beauly, Great Ord distillery and Culluden battle field. Only minor thing was we were surprised we had to pay extra for the Whisky tour at the distillery even though described as a Whisky tour
