Full Description

Invergordon Port

Our tours from the port of Invergordon begin as soon as you disembark from your cruise ship, around an hour after the ship arrives in port. Your guide will be waiting to greet you — you’ll recognise them by their Historic & Scenic Tours placard bearing your Surname. From there your guide will escort you to one of our comfortable minibuses, where complimentary snacks and bottles of water will be made available for your tour.

Alness & Millionaire’s View at Struie Hill

The North Highland Tour From Invergordon commences, passing by the town of Alness towards Millionaire’s View at Struie Hill, an elevated viewpoint overlooking the Dornoch Firth with spectacular views towards the mountains of Sutherland. We will spend around 30 minutes here, plenty of time to take a walk around and get some fantastic shots of the landscape.

Lairg & Falls of Shin

We will then set off towards the village of Lairg, where the Falls of Shin are located. This beautiful waterfall is a must-see when visiting the area, especially in the summer and early autumn months when if you're lucky you might spot salmon leaping from the river below.

Dunrobin Castle

The tour then proceeds towards Dunrobin Castle, one of Scotland’s most impressive stately homes and the largest in the northern Highlands. We will spend around 1 hour 30 minutes here, plenty of time to take in the impressive museum collections and falconry demonstrations. An excellent opportunity to learn more about this gorgeous, historic estate and the Clan Sutherland, for whom this place is the family seat.

Dornoch Cathedral

From Dunrobin, it’s a short drive to the town of Dornoch, former royal burgh and home to some of the most gorgeous beaches and coasts in the Highlands. Famous for its 400 years of golfing history, Dornoch is a popular destination for visitors. The beautiful town centre and Cathedral are straight out of a painting and steeped in history. Spend some time perusing the many boutique shops offering the finest of local food and craft, as well as the 13th-century Cathedral, for around 1 hour.

Glenmorangie Distillery

Finally, the road takes us to Glenmorangie Distillery, one of the most famous whisky distilleries in Scotland, also known as the ‘vale of tranquillity’. Learn more about the whisky-making process perfected by the ‘Men of Tain,’ legendary craftsmen who make the famous blends using traditional methods passed down through the generations. Round off your adventure by tasting a dram of the award-winning whisky on offer, before heading back towards Invergordon, returning at least 1 hour prior to your ship’s departure.
