What to expect

Departing from Inverness, you will head to Clava Cairns, the ancient burial cairns surrounded by standing rocks which inspired the Outlander novels. If you are familiar with Diana Gabaldon's works, then you will recognize this as the site where Claire touched the stones which saw her flying back in time to the 18th century Jacobite uprisings.

You will then head to Loch Ness, discovering the mystery and history of this wide expanse of water. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for its famous inhabitant: Nessie the Loch Ness monster. Having worked up a thirst, you will head to Glen Ord Distillery where you can quench it, as you take a delicious tasting tour around the establishment. After a dram of some 12-year-old whisky, you will head to Beauly, another spot which is strongly linked to Outlander, where you'll have lunch and explore the beautiful Priory ruins.

Before heading to the mythical and magical Black Isle, and discovering the tales of witchcraft which surround it, you will head to the Robertson farm and meet (and pet) some gorgeous Highland cows. Next you'll head to Chanonry Point where, if you're lucky, you'll catch sight of Britain's most northerly colony of Bottlenose dolphins, before heading to sleepy Avoch a quaint and traditional fishing village.
