This is exactly as you have imagined Scotland to be, the Highlands are an amazing concoction of culture, history, architecture and unparalleled scenery.

Your first stop is Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre, where the last pitched battle was fought on Scottish soil. In just one hour on a fateful day in April 1746, more than 1,200 men lost their lives during the Jacobite's last rising. Walk the Culloden battlegrounds and view the interactive exhibitions that explain who the Jacobite's were, what they were fighting for, the various military tactics used and more. While here, observe the Fraser Stone, a marker commemorating Inverness' prominent Fraser clan who died in the battle.

Continue to the Culloden Railway Viaduct with its 29 spans crossing the River Nairn. Built in 1898, it is the longest masonry viaduct in Scotland. At the Clava Cairns you can see a well-preserved Bronze Age circular chamber tomb as well as ring cairns, kerb cairns and other standing burial stones.

Make your way to the 13th century Cawdor Castle nestled among beautiful gardens and to Fort George, a large 18th century fortress built to pacify Highlanders after the 1715 Jacobite's war. From there you will stop for some retail therapy and a taste of uisge beatha, or whiskey, as you travel through the beautiful Highlands back to port.

Sign up today for this 6-hour tour of some of the Highlands most historically valuable landmarks and unlock some of the mystery and beauty that cloaks this magnificent area of the world.
