#1 Active Day – Trekking in the Scottish Highlands to the Glenfinnan Viaduct (a railway viaduct that Harry Potter fans will instantly recognize), Nevis Range Gondola rides to view the tallest mountain in the UK and other activities are being planned for those that want to be adventurous.
#2 Loch Ness Day Tour – We will start our tour with a 30 minute cruise up Loch Ness to the Urquhart Castle. Your tour of the Urquhart Castle will provide beautiful view overlooking Loch Ness and an overview of the castles history dating back to AD 580. Our next stop will be in Fort Augustus, a historic and scenic hamlet at the south-west end of Loch Ness. We will have time in Fort Augustus to view the famous Neptune Staircase locks, explore the shops and have lunch. Our day will continue up to the less traveled south-east side of Loch Ness to introduce you to the marathon (and 10K) course route, search for the perfect Highland Coos selfies and enjoy a stop in Dores the home of Steve Feltham the Nessie Hunter.
#3 History Day Tour – Includes a visit to the Culloden Battlefield and education center that will provide a powerfully emotive understanding of the 1745 Jacobite Rising and its tragic end. Next we will tour the Cawdor Castle and gardens, which originally belonged to Clan Cawdor before passing into the hands of Campbells in the 16th century. We finish today touring the Glen Ord Distillery, tasting and perhaps purchasing their award winning single malt scotch that dates back to 1838.
