    Stop At: Struie Hill, Tain IV19 1LD, UK

    ​Millionaires Viewpoint (as it's known to the locals) is the first stop and there will be plenty time to take pictures before the tour descends in to the Glen through Bonar Bridge on your way to Falls of Shin and the Salmon Leap.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Falls of Shin, Achany Glen, Lairg IV27 4EE Scotland

    Atlantic Salmon can often be seen leaping the falls, making the final push toward their birthplace for the cycle to start all over again.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Dunrobin Castle and Gardens, Golspie KW10 6SF Scotland

    Dunrobin Castle & Gardens which is very popular with locals and it always goes down well with our guests. The falconry display is amazing - Andy (The Falconer) has been working with local birds for over 25 years and his knowledge and passion shine through. He's a very interesting character and many people say it's the best they've seen in the world. The castle looks like it is straight out of a fairy-tale and set in the Scottish Highlands it looks magnificent. Dunrobin also has a wonderfully unique museum and taxidermy collection. 

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Carn Liath Broch, Beside A9 road, Golspie Scotland

    Carn Liath is only a 2 minute drive north of Dunrobin Castle and is a fine example of a broch – a type of fortification found only in Scotland. It also offers great views of Dunorbin Castle

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Dornoch, Dornoch, Caithness and Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, Scotland

    The adventure then heads south through Golspie to the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, one of Scotland's most picturesque villages. It is home to a stunning golden sandy beach and a world class golf course but even without these things it just takes you to another time altogether. Highly, highly recommend!! The old Jail has been turned into a shop selling locally made, hand crafted gifts, jewellery and works of art, if you're looking for souvenirs. The Cathedral also draws lots of visitors with a collection of beautiful stained glass windows.

    Dornoch is also a great place to stop for lunch with lots of options including a local bakery, a patisserie, a gallery, and our favourite the Royal Golf Hotel - Scottish Hospitality at its very best plus the food is really really good, so there's something to suit all tastes.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Glenmorangie Distillery, on the A9 Ross-shire, IV19 1PZ Scotland

    CURRENTLY SHUT DUE TO COVID-19. DUE TO OPEN ON SEPTEMBER 1ST. When it reopens there will be access to the shop and also to taste some of their delicious whiskies. We are also hoping to be able to show you some of the distillery including the still house and potentially inside a warehouse. We will confirm once we have received your booking.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Black Isle Brewery, Old Allangrange, Munlochy IV8 8NZ Scotland
