7,000 years ago, Scotland was covered in rainforests. But climatic conditions and human activity transformed the country into a mix of mighty castles, bare mountains, and reputable cities. Yet, there’s a place that’s almost unchanged. A small region that hid away and conserved the ancient wilderness.

They call it Glen Affric.

145 square kilometres of forest canopies, rivers, stags, and snow-crested mountains.

On this tour, you take the single-track lanes through a Caledonian pine forest to one of the best walks in the region.

But that’s not all, you also get a chance to learn about the last battle fought on British soil at Culloden and discover a Bronze Age tomb at Clava Cairns.

Join this day-tour and explore one of Scotland’s most untouched landscapes.

Tour Details
Highlights:

Clava Cairns – Travel through winding back roads and discover a 4,000-year-old cemetery.

Glen Affric – Ancient pines, shimmering lochs, and steep mountains abound in ‘Scotland’s most beautiful glen’.

River Walk – Get close to Scotland’s ancient wilderness on a gentle walk along a river.

Beauly Priory – Visit this tucked away priory and learn about the monks of the Highlands.

Itinerary

Clava Cairns

You first venture to the ancient burial site of Clava Cairns. This Bronze Age ‘graveyard’ has survived four millennia and is a great spot to take atmospheric photos. They say the stone circle here was the inspiration for the Craigh na Dun time portal in the Outlander books.

Culloden

You then visit Culloden, one of the most important locations in Scottish history. It was here that a 60-year series of uprisings finally ended in a tumultuous battle. You can explore the visitor centre and pay tribute to those who lost their lives at the last ever battle fought on British soil.

Glen Affric

You ramble along to Glen Affric and stop off for walks amongst the indigenous Caledonian pine trees. You get the chance to enjoy views over Loch Affric and the mountains beyond, and your driver-guide ensures you go to the best waterfalls and photo spots throughout the afternoon.

Beauly Priory

Following this, you have the chance to stretch your legs and explore the historic ruins of Beauly Priory. 13th-century French monks called this religious site ‘beau lieu’, which means ‘beautiful place’.

Inverness

Your final journey takes you along the shores of Loch Ness and back to the centre of Inverness for the early evening.
