Invergordon Shore Excursion
Its reputation is such that we don’t feel like saying much as of yet. At Loch Ness you’ll have the opportunity to get your binoculars out of your rucksack and try to spot Nessie from the Loch’s banks, or enjoy the visit of the mighty Urquhart Castle (subject to availability).
Your journey takes you through the picturesque capital of the Highlands of Scotland, Inverness.The name Inverness comes from the Scottish Gaelic “Inbhir Nis” meaning the mouth of the River Ness. In Inverness you have about an hour to explore the most beautiful sights and do some shopping.
The journey continues on to Clava Cairns, a group of three Bronze Age cairns located near Inverness. A hugely significant and exceptionally well preserved prehistoric site, Clava Cairns is a fantastic example of the distant history of Highland Scotland, dating back about 4,000 years.
Glen Ord Distillery
Last stop before heading back to the port is in Muir of Ord where you can visit Glen Ord Malt Whisky Distillery for a behind-the-scenes tour followed by a tasting of the end product.
