This day trip from Inverness visits some of the main attractions of the Orkney Islands including Skara Brae, The Churchill Barriers, Scapa Flow, The Ring of Brodgar and The Standing Stones of Stenness. You will also have a stop in Kirkwall with an opportunity to see Kirkwall's magnificent 12th century cathedral of St Magnus. Free time for lunch in Kirkwall.

Leaving Inverness behind, this day trip of the Orkney Islands departs every summer morning. Settle back and enjoy the spectacular drive through Scotland's Far North Highlands, before arriving at famous John O'Groats - the end of the line, the northern most point of Scotland.

Cross the Pentland Firth to the Islands in just 40 minutes, looking out for puffins, seals, gannets, porpoise and even the occasional whale along the way. Island hop across the Churchill Barriers which thread together five islands to form the Eastern boundary of Scapa Flow. Visit the capital town, Kirkwall, home to the magnificent Viking cathedral of St Magnus and step back 3,000 years as you enter the stoneage village of Skara Brae. The village was hidden under sand dunes, perfectly preserved, until uncovered 150 years ago during a winter storm.

Explore the romantic Isle of Skye on a full-day trip from Inverness. Taking in spectacular Highland scenery, your tour passes Loch Ness and the ruins of Eilean Donan Castle before reaching Skye, where gnarly mountain peaks and hillsides swathed in purple heather are framed by soft, sandy beaches. Enjoy lunch in Broadford and walks around Loch Slappin and the Strathaird Peninsula. Before returning to Inverness, pass the gorgeous little island of Eilean Ban.

Leave Inverness and head southwest to Loch Ness, the legendary freshwater loch in the Scottish Highlands. As you travel by minibus along the shore-side road, your expert guide will talk you through the myth of ‘Nessie’ – the fabled Loch Ness Monster. Stop at the wee village of Invermoriston to stretch your legs and see the delightful Thomas Telford Bridge.

Continue traveling through pretty glens like Glen Moriston, and then pass alongside the Five Sisters mountain range. Stop outside Eilean Donan Castle to admire its incredibly picturesque ruins sprawled across the banks of three spectacular lochs.

At the Kyle of Lochalsh, cross the famous Skye Bridge to reach the Isle of Skye itself. First stop is at the island’s second-largest settlement, Broadford, where you’ll visit a charming local inn for lunch (own expense). Then your tour of this beautiful island begins! Following the coastal road to Glen Suardal, pass the iconic Red Cuillin Hills and enjoy sweeping views of pretty Bla Bheinn (Blaven Mountain) from the village of Torrin.

Take a stroll with your guide around the banks of Loch Slappin – one of Scotland’s most photographed lochs. As you amble around this picturesque spot, your guide will indulge you in the local pastime of beachcombing – scouting the shores for interesting rocks and fossils. After walking along the shores, enjoy a steep walk up Strathaird Peninsula to reach the tiny village of Egol. Spend time at leisure here, soaking up the stunning sea views across to Rum.

Your journey back passes the little island of Eilean Ban, home to a large colony of otters and a wealth of wildlife. The famous British writer Gavin Maxwell calls Eilean Ban home, and the wildlife here influenced his best-selling novel, Ring of Bright Water. Head back to Inverness via the village of Achnasheen and the dramatic Black Isle, arriving in the early evening.

Early morning journey by Canadian Canoe. A gentle flat water paddle through the impressive Aigas Gorge to look for otters and feeding osprey as the sun rises... a truly memorable experience.

After a basic introduction to steering the canoes we will proceed in silence down the River Beauly on a short but stunning journey to experience river life at sunrise.

On our previous trips we have been lucky enough to see families of Roe Deer drinking at the edge of the river, watched Peregrine Falcon fledglings stumble along a rock ledge, watched otters playing in the gorge, badgers foraging and ospreys catching fish and taking them back to their riverside nest to feed their young.

Obviously no sightings can ever be guaranteed, but even without the wildlife this is one of the very best short canoe journeys in the country.

A light breakfast is included.

Minimum age 12. Minimum of 4 people required for this trip to run - should we fail to confirm this number of bookings we reserve the right to cancel the session and offer money back or alternative date.

A light breakfast is included.

Participants should take: Warm waterproof jacket, binoculars if you have them and a towel and change of clothes just in case!

A wonderful 5-day Great Glen Canoe Trail camping expedition, fully-catered, with an experienced, local guide and spectacular scenery as you travel from the west coast to east by canoe or kayak.

Travel under the watchful eye of a local guide and will camp along the way. You'll get the opportunity to learn new canoe skills or consolidate what you already know. With stunning scenery, myths and legends and lots of fresh Highland air, this is an expedition not to be missed.

Typical itinerary

Day 1 - Fort William to Gairlochy
Start with everyone meeting up and being transported to the start point at Banavie, Fort William. After packing up and a short briefing session and everyone is happy with steering a fully laden canoe we will paddle around 10km towards Gairlochy to find a remote campsite to enjoy our first night well away from the bustle of Fort William.

Day 2 - Gairlochy to Loch Oich
Much of the day is spent paddling the length of Loch Lochy (who came up with that name!). Hopefully the prevailing south-westerly wind is blowing and we can rig an improvised sail to speed us along. At the head of the loch we pass through Laggan Locks then paddle a two mile section of canal which takes us into the magical Loch Oich, home for the night.

Day 3 - Loch Oich to Alltsigh
The River Oich runs side by side with the canal from here along to Fort Augustus, so we make the most of having a current to help us along for a while. With a lunch stop in the lovely Fort Augustus you get the chance to visit a few shops for the first time on the trip and also to visit the Caledonian Canal Museum. On leaving the village we face the daunting prospect of tackling the 36km of Loch Ness.

Day 4 - Alltsigh to Dores
A full-day on Loch Ness today. In normal conditions this is a lovely leisurely paddle and we may well have time to land at the dramatic Urqhuart Castle for photo opportunities, and a visit to the excellent Historic Scotland visitor center. In the evening we finally reach the head of the loch and find a campsite nearby. Looking back down the full length of Loch Ness, stunning sunsets are common.

Day 5 - Dores to Inverness
The hustle and bustle of the city looms ever closer this morning as we leave Loch Ness behind, travel through the picturesque little Loch Dochfour, negotiate the last canal lock of the journey at Dochgarroch then paddle through rolling farmland and into Inverness.

The Whisky Bus departs from Inverness at 8.45am, where we board a well-appointed coach with air conditioning, onboard WC and PA system. Accompanied by an experienced local driver, and separate knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, we will embark on a 10-hour whisky-fuelled adventure to the following Highland and Speyside whisky establishments;

1. Tomatin Distillery
Our first stop is at Tomatin Distillery, where whisky production is thought to have been a way of life since as far back as the fifteenth century. Here you will be taken on an distillery tour, which will give you a great foundation for the day ahead. After the tour you will be encouraged to “ experience the softer side of the Highlands” with tutored tastings of three specially selected drams.

2. Glenlivet Distillery
Our next stop is Glenlivet Distillery, where you will experience a tutored tasting of three drams in one of their most exclusive tasting rooms. Following this, you will have some time to browse the exhibition, where you can find out more about the irrepressible spirit of The Glenlivet. You may also wish to browse the shop or try some whisky cake in The Old Maltings Coffee Shop.

3. Glenfarclas Distillery
Our next stop is Glenfarclas Distillery, one of the few family-owned distilleries in Scotland, and a favourite of our customers due to its relaxed ambience and unique history. Here we will hear a bit about the distillery, whilst enjoying a dram in the unique surroundings of their bonded warehouse. After that we will head inside, where you will enjoy a second tasting of this traditional Speyside malt in the luxurious surroundings of The Ship’s Room.

4. Speyside Cooperage
At the Speyside Cooperage, the only working cooperage in Scotland, highly skilled coopers are still using traditional skills to restore and repair casks. Here we will be treated to a 4D audio-visual presentation, before heading to the viewing gallery to admire the coopers at work.  You can even try your hand at making a mini-cask too!

5. Aberlour Distillery
Last but not least is Aberlour Distillery,  where we are guaranteed a warm welcome from their experienced and enthusiastic team. Situated in the pretty town of the same name, bang in the middle of Speyside, we end our whisky extravaganza on a high with a complimentary taste  in the delightful setting of one of their dramming rooms.  You will then have time to browse their compact yet tempting shop.

As the journey through Speyside is a picturesque one, we will make a couple of scenic photo stops on the homeward journey; these include Ballindalloch Castle and the 18th Century packhorse bridge in Carrbridge. Upon your return to Inverness, there are many excellent pubs within a few minutes’ walk of the bus stop, so you may well find that some of your fellow travelers will join you to toast a final "uisge beatha"!
