* When the Distillery is closed there will be an extended stop in Beauly.
Please note between 4th September- 4th October the full distillery will not be open. However, you will still visit the exhibition and be able to try some of their whisky.
We will depart Inverness and make our way to the little village of Drumnadrochit which lies close to the banks of the mysterious Loch Ness. Discover more about the loch and its famous resident from your fascinating driver-guide. As you journey along the banks of the loch, keep a careful watch, just in case!
Your next stop is in the attractive town of Beauly. The name derives from the French, Beau Lieu (meaning beautiful place) and it was so named by the monks who built a priory here in the 13th Century. Your journey continues to the Muir of Ord where, if you wish, you can visit Glen Ord Malt Whisky Distillery for a behind-the-scenes tour followed by a tasting of the end product.*
Next, you'll have time to visit the sleepy fishing village of Cromarty. Here you'll feel like you've stepped into the past as you explore its quaint fishermen's cottages, crow-stepped houses and grand sandstone mansions. This attractive town was the major port for the North of Scotland and its character has been retained to this day, thanks to careful conservation work.
From Cromarty, you'll travel through spectacular scenery to Rosemarkie and Fortrose. These picturesque villages are separated by Chanonry Point which sticks out into the Moray Firth. The Moray Firth is home to a community of some 130 bottlenose dolphins and Chanonry Point is a popular vantage point from which to spot these amazing mammals, we’ll stop here to hopefully spot the dolphins before we return to Inverness.
