Bottlenose dolphins, organically brewed beer, and cute coastal villages: this tour explores the best-kept secrets of northern Scotland.

The Black Isle is far more colourful than its name implies.

You see dolphins splashing about in the rich-blue Beauly Firth. You wander through villages lined by golden-yellow sands. And you find Celtic traditions deep within green forests.

Join this day tour and discover the beautiful palette of the Black Isle. You have a chance to go on a wildlife cruise, the option to taste locally brewed beers, and time to learn the tales of this history-soaked region of Scotland.

It’s perfect for people who enjoy venturing off the beaten track and learning about the different hues of indigenous wildlife, ancient traditions, and local flavours.

Itinerary

Inverness

You leave Inverness behind and head straight for the brewery. Tasting beer before noon is a great wee novelty, and the Black Isle Brewery’s ethical beliefs and home-grown flavours are fantastic to learn about.

Rosemarkie

After you’ve soaked up the local flavours, you take the short drive to Rosemarkie. This wonderful wee village offers you a chance to learn about ancient Pictish art and take in fresh sea views.

Cromarty

The journey then takes you to the equally picturesque village of Cromarty. There are plenty of things to do here. You can eat at a local restaurant, go shopping in the delightful arts and crafts shop, or visit the birthplace of the famous geologist, Hugh Millar.

Your next stop is an example of a strange, ancient Celtic tradition. It’s a small well in a forest where people leave offerings for spirits, gods, and wishes. You can leave something yourself, but please make sure it’s biodegradable and doesn’t damage the local environment.

Inverness

Before heading back to Inverness, you have a chance to go dolphin spotting with ‘Dolphin Spirit’. Their boat is specially designed to limit disruption for the dolphins, the friendly guides tell you incredible facts about the wildlife, and the dolphins are active and use the beautiful firth as a nursery for their calves. It’s an essential Black Isle experience; but if you have other plans, you can skip this option, and we’ll take you back to Inverness earlier.
