Itinerary


We depart Inverness at 8:00am and head straight for the historic village of Findhorn, for a walk on the gorgeous beach. We trail the coast to Portknockie, where Bow Fiddle Rock, a dramatic sea arch, sits just off the shore. Afterwards, we continue our village-hop to picture-perfect Cullen, home of the famous soup, Cullen Skink. Explore, eat lunch and get excited for the next stop.

Look out for puffins* and sea birds on our invigorating walk at Troup Head Nature Reserve; you might even be lucky enough to spot marine life too! Afterwards, we journey inland on the Malt Whisky Trail to learn all about single malt production at a Speyside whisky distillery, where tasting is the best way to learn! We make one final stop at the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands, in the small village of Carrbridge, before returning to Inverness for 7.30pm.

*Please note: Since the nesting season takes place from approximately mid-May until mid-August, puffin encounters cannot be guaranteed for departures in late August and September.
