We are the only family business which offers tours from the port of Invergordon and we are the original Invergordon Tours. Over the years others have copied our name and tried to build on our success but we are the only Invergordon Tours company being run by locals. Gavin Nicholson started up the business with one simple goal and that was to offer amazing holiday experiences for the people who chose to visit his hometown. Our guests seem to agree but don't just take our word for it, book a tour and see for yourself why we are the number one tour company in Invergordon. Sit back and indulge in the panoramic views of the Scottish Highlands and Islandsas your local guide takes you on an unforgettable tour of this magical land they call home.
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Struie Hill Viewpoint, B9176, Alness IV17 0XR, UK
The adventure begins as soon as you arrive at the end of the gangway where your guide will be waiting to welcome you to the Scottish Highlands. The tour begins with a drive through the town of Invergordon and along the coastal road to Alness, passed the world famous Dalmore Distillery before climbing in to the hills through Ardross to one of the best views in Scotland. (in our opinion)
OPTION: Millionaire's Viewpoint (as it's known to the locals) is the first stop and there will be plenty time to take pictures.
Duration: 10 minutes
Stop At: Falls of Shin, Achany Glen, Lairg IV27 4EE Scotland
OPTION: The tour descends in to the Glen through Bonar Bridge on your way to The Falls of Shin and the Salmon Leap. Atlantic Salmon can often be seen leaping the falls, making the final push toward their birthplace for the cycle to start all over again.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Dunrobin Castle and Gardens, Golspie KW10 6SF Scotland
OPTION: Then it's a short drive to Dunrobin Castle & Gardens which is very popular with locals and it always goes down well with our guests. The falconry display is amazing - Andy (The Falconer) has been working with local birds for over 25 years and his knowledge and passion shine through. He's a very interesting character and many people say it's the best they've seen in the world. The castle looks like it is straight out of a fairy-tale and set in the Scottish Highlands it looks magnificent. Dunrobin also has a wonderfully unique museum and taxidermy collection.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Carn Liath Broch, Beside A9 road, Golspie Scotland
OPTION: Carn Liath is only a 2 minute drive north of Dunrobin Castle and is a fine example of a broch – a type of fortification found only in Scotland. It also offers great views of Dunrobin Castle.
Duration: 10 minutes
Stop At: Dornoch Cathedral, The Cathedral High Street, Dornoch Scotland
OPTION:The adventure then heads south through Golspie to the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, one of Scotland's most picturesque villages. It is home to a stunning golden sandy beach and a world class golf course but even without these things it just takes you to another time altogether. Highly, highly recommend!! The old Jail has been turned into a shop selling locally made, hand crafted gifts, jewellery and works of art, if you're looking for souvenirs. The Cathedral also draws lots of visitors with a collection of beautiful stained glass windows.
Dornoch is also a great place to stop for lunch with lots of options including a local bakery, a patisserie, a gallery, and our favourite the Royal Golf Hotel - Scottish Hospitality at its very best plus the food is really really good, so there's something to suit all tastes.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Glenmorangie Distillery, on the A9 Ross-shire, IV19 1PZ Scotland
OPTION: Last stop on the itinerary is often a tour and tasting at the world famous Glenmorangie Distillery but this is just an option, many people have no interest in distilleries.
Duration: 1 hour
