Sample Itinerary

We Come to You
Let us know which ship you are on and we’ll track it, and be ready for you when you disembark.

Drive through Scenic Scotland
Sit back in our comfortable premium vehicle as your guide introduces themselves and Scotland – learn the history of this romantic and stunning scenery.

Take in Urquart Castle
If you’ve seen a picture of a beautiful ruined castle on a loch, this is it. Originally held by Bridei of the Picts in the 6th century, you’ll learn about its colourful past and the many times it’s been destroyed and rebuilt.

Get up Close and Personal with Loch Ness
Loch Ness is not just the biggest lake in the UK, it’s also one of the most dramatic. No matter the weather, the views along the lake are breathtaking. As you cruise through the middle of the lake with your guide, you’ll get a sense of the scale, and understand why some people have dedicated their lives to trying to find the monster within.

Enjoy a Lunch Stop Next to Some Highland Coos
It wouldn’t be a trip to Scotland without seeing some of the hairy locals, and their cows. Celebrated in artwork and emblematic of the Highlands, you’ll have ample opportunity for photos. But don’t get too close! While very friendly, their horns are sharp and a male cow weighs almost a tonne.

Experience Cawdor Castle
Made famous by Shakespeare’s play of the 11th century king Macbeth, Cawdor Castle today is the seat of Colin Campbell, the 7th Earl of Cawdor. Unlike many of Scotland’s castles, Cawdor has not been destroyed by war, and so the Castle and the Grounds give us a glimpse into medieval and modern aristocratic life.

Touch the Clava Cairns
Humans have lived in Scotland for many thousands of years, And while we don’t know much about the people who were here before the picts, they did leave some fantastic monuments behind. The Clave Cairns are examples of this – four thousand year old standing stones. Explore this magical slice of Scotland’s past brought to life by your passionate dedicated guide.

Back Aboard
In time for your sailing with fab photos, memories and souvenirs from your time in the Highlands.
