Highland and Speyside Explorer Tour from Inverness

The Highland & Speyside Explorer Tour departs from Inverness at 8.45am, where we board a well-appointed coach with air conditioning, onboard WC and PA system. Accompanied by an experienced local driver, and separate knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, we will embark on a sightseeing adventure to the following attractions; 1.  Culloden Battlefield Culloden was a short but bloody battle which took place on 16th April 1746 and marked the final chapter of the Jacobite Uprising . On a tour of this significant sight, your guide will bring the landscape to life as he enthralls you with a poignant account of the battle, the ensuing escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the subsequent demise of the Gaelic language and Highland clan culture. 2. Clava Cairns Our next stop is Clava Cairns, a hugely significant Bronze Age cemetery complex of passage graves, ring cairns, a kerb cairn and standing stones in a beautiful location. This is a fantastic example of Highland history which dates back around 4000 years (and, for Outlander fans, make sure you listen out for the split stone buzzing!) 3. Glenlivet Distillery The Glenlivet is situated in the heart of Scotland's malt whisky making country.  Here you will have 30 minutes to explore the exhibition, where you can find out about the turbulent history of the whisky smugglers, and delve into the intriguing mysteries of distilling.  You may wish to enjoy a coffee in The Old Maltings Coffee Shop, or take a walk up to Josie’s Well. Alternatively, for an additional £8 per person, you can partake in a tutored tasting of three whiskies in one of the distillery's most exclusive tasting rooms. (This option can be booked on the day of the tour, and should be paid in cash to the tour guide). 4. Knockando Woolmill This historic district mill has been producing woven fabric on its historic looms for over 200 years. Your volunteer guide will show you round the cluster of sympathetically restored buildings which house the spinning and weaving machines and, hopefully, you should be able to see the weavers at work. We would recommend souvenir shopping here, as it is the only place in Scotland where you can buy the goods produced at the mill. 6. Ballindalloch Castle First and foremost a family home, this "Pearl of the North" has been lived in continuously by the Macpherson-Grants since 1546, and the magnificent building is resplendent with family memorabilia, fine furniture and paintings. You will have around 1 ½ hours here to independently explore both the castle and its lush gardens. You may also wish to sample the excellent homebaking in the cafe, or pick up some souvenirs. 7. Carrbridge On our homeward journey we stop for a photo of the beautiful packhorse bridge in Carrbridge, before returning to Inverness with wonderful memories of an action-packed day.

Whisky Bus Tour from Inverness

The Whisky Bus departs from Inverness at 8.45am, where we board a well-appointed coach with air conditioning, onboard WC and PA system. Accompanied by an experienced local driver, and separate knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, we will embark on a 10-hour whisky-fuelled adventure to the following Highland and Speyside whisky establishments; 1. Tomatin Distillery Our first stop is at Tomatin Distillery, where whisky production is thought to have been a way of life since as far back as the fifteenth century. Here you will be taken on an distillery tour, which will give you a great foundation for the day ahead. After the tour you will be encouraged to “ experience the softer side of the Highlands” with tutored tastings of three specially selected drams. 2. Glenlivet Distillery Our next stop is Glenlivet Distillery, where you will experience a tutored tasting of three drams in one of their most exclusive tasting rooms. Following this, you will have some time to browse the exhibition, where you can find out more about the irrepressible spirit of The Glenlivet. You may also wish to browse the shop or try some whisky cake in The Old Maltings Coffee Shop. 3. Glenfarclas Distillery Our next stop is Glenfarclas Distillery, one of the few family-owned distilleries in Scotland, and a favourite of our customers due to its relaxed ambience and unique history. Here we will hear a bit about the distillery, whilst enjoying a dram in the unique surroundings of their bonded warehouse. After that we will head inside, where you will enjoy a second tasting of this traditional Speyside malt in the luxurious surroundings of The Ship’s Room. 4. Speyside Cooperage At the Speyside Cooperage, the only working cooperage in Scotland, highly skilled coopers are still using traditional skills to restore and repair casks. Here we will be treated to a 4D audio-visual presentation, before heading to the viewing gallery to admire the coopers at work.  You can even try your hand at making a mini-cask too! 5. Aberlour Distillery Last but not least is Aberlour Distillery,  where we are guaranteed a warm welcome from their experienced and enthusiastic team. Situated in the pretty town of the same name, bang in the middle of Speyside, we end our whisky extravaganza on a high with a complimentary taste  in the delightful setting of one of their dramming rooms.  You will then have time to browse their compact yet tempting shop. As the journey through Speyside is a picturesque one, we will make a couple of scenic photo stops on the homeward journey; these include Ballindalloch Castle and the 18th Century packhorse bridge in Carrbridge. Upon your return to Inverness, there are many excellent pubs within a few minutes’ walk of the bus stop, so you may well find that some of your fellow travelers will join you to toast a final "uisge beatha"!
