Panoramica

Celebra i tesori della Scozia con un tour di 8 ore delle Highlands scozzesi e del whisky da Inverness. Visita la penisola collinare della Black Isle, screziata da prospere fattorie, l'antico villaggio di Cromarty e Chanonry Point per guardare i giocosi delfini tursiopi. Rendi omaggio alla regione storicamente produttrice di whisky con una sosta alla distilleria di Glen Ord per un tour e un assaggio. Concludi la giornata a Loch Ness e cogli l'occasione di avvistare il suo mostro sfuggente, Nessie!
  • Gita di un giorno alle Highlands scozzesi da Inverness
  • Goditi l'incredibile panorama mentre viaggi lungo la penisola di Black Isle
  • Visita Cromarty e vedi i delfini tursiopi a Chanonry Point
  • Esplora Beauly a tuo piacimento e poi entra nella distilleria di whisky Glen Ord
  • Passeggia lungo le rive del lago di Loch Ness e cerca Nessie, il leggendario mostro che lo abita!
L'escursione di 8 ore prende il via da Inverness in mattinata. Incontra la guida presso il centro visitatori della città e prendi posto sul comodo pulmino per il breve tragitto oltre il Beauly Firth fino a Black Isle. Mentre viaggi verso ovest, ascolta la guida raccontare la storia dell'origine del nome di Black Isle, dal suo tipico suolo nero al suo legame del passato con la stregoneria e le arti oscure. Assapora la campagna tranquilla mentre attraversi la penisola fino a Cromarty.

Sbarca nel caratteristico villaggio di pescatori che una volta serviva da porto dei traghetti e che oggi conserva tutto il suo fascino antico! Ammira l'architettura georgiana mentre girovaghi tra vecchi cottage dei pescatori, negozietti e ristorantini. Successivamente, risali sul pullman per il viaggio fino a Chanonry Point, passando davanti ad altri dolci paesini scozzesi come Rosemarkie e Fortress lungo la strada. 

Dallo stretto Chanonry Point, osserva le acque del Moray Firth, che ospita un notevole branco di circa 130 esemplari. Guarda le amabili creature saltare e giocare sulla superficie dell'acqua, prima di dirigerti verso la cittadina di Beauly per esplorare e pranzare (a proprie spese). Con un nome che deriva dal francese beau lieu (bel posto), l'affascinante villaggio è il luogo perfetto per una pausa pomeridiana. 

Dopo pranzo, entra nella rinomata distilleria Glen Ord. Esplora il luogo e dai un'occhiata agli imponenti distillatori a forma di pera, ciascuno dalla capienza di oltre 16.000 litri! Scopri il complesso processo di produzione e assaggia un campione del whisky di malto singolo di 12 anni distintivo di Glen Ord.

Da qui, torna a Inverness, fermandoti presso il misterioso e maestoso lago di Loch Ness. Esplora il villaggio Drumnadrochit e goditi le viste mozzafiato del lago e delle colline circostanti. Cogli anche l'opportunità di avvistare il mitico mostro di Loch Ness, Nessie! Infine rilassati nel viaggio di ritorno a Inverness, arrivando al punto di partenza nelle prime ore della sera.

Our tour guide, Vicky, took care to make sure we were able to do everything we wanted! We saw highland cows, dolphins, and I could swear I even saw Nessie. ;). The town where we stopped for lunch was fantastically picturesque and we spent just enough time there. The whiskey distillery was informative and fun. Overall it was a worry-free day packed with memorable experiences. We had a hard time knowing what to wear, so just in case you are finding yourself thinking the same thing I would recommend sneakers, jeans, and to bring along a light jacket. Don’t wear fancy shoes because you will walk along a beach and on grating ( at the distillery).

Off we went with our guide Allison in a roomy van. Allison was fantastic, she knew our 10 names in the first 5 minutes and I enjoyed her good-natured banter and her wealth of knowledge. First to Loch Ness where we heard the legend but the monster was on an extended vacation presumably. After the whiskey tour which had been pre-arranged, we had lunch in the quaint village of Cromarty where some of us had Cullen Skink soup which sounds like it's made from lizards but actually a delicious smoked fish. We got our feet wet along the coast as we looked for dolphins. They must have been on vacation too but the Highland cattle were not and no one complained we were having such a good time. Back to Inverness where we received recommendations from Allison for dinner and entertainment ideas. I'd do this all again, and hope to sometime soon.

It is worth of for those who enjoy countriside views, want to see life out of capitals and spend comfortably a day during their stay in Inverness. Nice Black Island sites and really rural atmosphere of villages to enjoy some coffee, sandwich or beer in local pubs. Whisky tour in Glen Ord only basic level, however, enough for most of not deeply interested in, finished with tasting. All tour related information given during the day were practical and interesting. Satisfied at all, but would recommend to tour guides, in general, to take better care of their pronounced english as also not native english speaking visitors can appear on their board from time to time. Thanks for nice day.

Enjoyed the lovely scenery and our guide, Julien, despite a mostly rainy day. We only stopped for a short time to take in the view of Loch Ness but I think I prefer that to the place we passed by - what seemed like a more commercial Nessie visitor's center. Julien, kept up a commentary through the day telling us interesting facts as well as local lore of the places we visited. The distillery tour was great and I felt there was ample time spent there about 45 min. Sally was our good humored distillery guide. I'm not a scotch drinker but this was an interesting tour and I can better appreciate what goes into making this libation! Footwear tip: don't wear thin/ spiky heels as part of it is walking on grating. Stopped in Beauly for a visit to the ruin of what was once an abbey. Julien's commentary did not seem rehearsed and I felt that he was sharing his knowledge with us rather than talking at us. It was like traveling around with a friend! We did not see dolphins near Cromarty but had a very nice lunch on our own and a brief walk on the beach there. By then the sun was peeking out. Again, Julien's stories were entertaining and personable. I would like to go back and spend a little more time in some of these places! Logistically speaking the pick up and drop off point bus station in Inverness was convenient and we left in a timely manner and got back earlier than I had expected. One thing I would encourage is to engage the tour participants with each other - maybe some ice breakers as we begin the tour. The people on the tour were pretty quiet and we didn't interact much with each other. Maybe all of us happened to be introverts that day? Overall a good day - wet but well spent! Thank you, Julien!

unser Guide Sinclair hat uns viele Details zu den Highlands erzählt - der Whisky-Stopp war sehr interssant - es war ausreichend Zeit, etwas zu essen - es wurden viele Zwischenstops eingelegt - ein bisschen mehr Zeit hätte ich gerne am Loch Ness gehabt und nicht nur 2x kurz angehalten um den See zu fotografieren

We had a fantastic tour guide Duncan, who was extremely knowledgeable and gave the best stories of the area. He even played music during the tour. It was exceptional. My in-laws said that this was the best tour they had ever had in their lives, so we know it was memorable. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed the trip overall, but felt that it was a bit too long for the different experiences included. Our guide was nice and if you have a whole day to spend in a van soaking up some great views, it was ideal.
