Loch Ness and the Highlands 1-Day Tour from Aberdeen

1. Loch Ness and the Highlands 1-Day Tour from Aberdeen

Your tour departs Aberdeen and heads straight for the ‘Whisky Capital of the World’, Dufftown. Unfortunately it's too early in the morning to taste the whisky at the Glenfiddich Distillery, but you have time to take a photo of the iconic site and grab a coffee. Venture through the heart of Speyside and arrive at Loch Ness for an optional boat trip which is bookable via your guide on the day of the trip. Onboard the ship, you travel over the widest and deepest part of the loch and get a fine view of Urquhart Castle. Upon your return back on dry land, it’s time to travel deep into the past at Clava Cairns. This spot is situated in a gorgeous green grove and boasts well-preserved ancient burial tombs. They even say this spot was the inspiration for Outlander’s Craigh na Dun. Follow this up with a trip to Culloden Battlefield, the location of the final Jacobite Rising. It’s an eerie, flat, tragic landscape that can put the history of Scotland into perspective. The interactive exhibition center here really brings it all to life. Have a comfort break within the gorgeous Cairngorms National Park before you reach Aberdeen 8:00 PM.

Inverness: Loch Ness Cruise, Outlander & Whisky Tour

2. Inverness: Loch Ness Cruise, Outlander & Whisky Tour

Depart central Inverness and journey to the world-famous Loch Ness, where you will join a 1-hour cruise to Urquhart Castle. You'll have time to explore the 13th-century ruins on foot as part of this tour. Afterward, enjoy lunch in one of the charming local cafés in Beauly and explore Beauly Priory, used in the film Outlander. Next, stop at an ancient pine forest to see waterfalls. Visit a Highland whisky distillery, and join an optional tour to learn about whisky production and sample a wee dram. Listen to tales of the Jacobite rebellions and the brutal Battle of Culloden, on a visit to Culloden Battlefield. Outlander fans will love the mysterious burial chambers and standing stones at Clava Cairns. When you’ve heard the harrowing history behind the Outlander story, you might not want to travel back in time to meet Jamie Fraser after all. Return to Inverness in the early evening.
