Description

Depart Inverness and head across the Black Isle to the Cromarty Firth. Driving through this beautiful landscape, there will be a chance to learn about the history of the region, including the story of the First Duke of Sutherland, whose agents were involved in the Highland clearances in the 19th Century!

Travel through the brooding landscape of Caithness. At lunchtime, enjoy a coastal stop at one of the region’s picturesque harbours. There will be the chance to learn about the region’s traditional herring fishing industry.

After lunch continue to John O’Groats where the will be more photo opportunities. Stroll along the cliff-top path at Duncansby Head and take in the dramatic views of sea stacks and the sea itself. Duncansby is rich in birdlife including guillemot, kittiwakes and, its most-famous residents, puffins (until late July). There are binoculars available on-board your mini-coach for a chance for a “close-up” view. After visiting Duncansby, continue southward to Inverness travelling through some breathtaking scenery.
