Black Isle and Chanonry Point
On our itinerary, we will firstly drive through the Black Isle which is a peninsula of land just north of Inverness. The area is also one of the best places in Europe to watch dolphins from the shore, at Chanonry Point. The pods of bottlenose dolphins often comes within yards of the shore. This is a must see and we will spend around an hour here.
Our second visit, we will be driving towards Contin and visiting Rogie Falls where you will see the waterfall that is famous for salmon viewing from the suspension bridge which has stunning views. Additionally, you have the option to spend some time exploring the forest if you want. We will spend 1 hour taking in the sights of the waterfalls.
Our next stop will be at Eilean Donan Castle, a beautiful 13th Century Castle located in the village of Dornie. You can purchase a ticket and visit the castle inside. We will spend about 1.5 hours here.
Driving on, we are heading towards the famous and mysterious Loch Ness. The Loch Ness is 22.5 miles long and we will stop in the village of Drumnadrochit, so that you can visit the local shops and the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition. The village is also a good place to have lunch. After having seen Ness (yes, you did see Ness), we will be taking you to the ancient ruins of Urquhart Castle by Loch Ness. Standing perched above the deepest point of the loch, the castle is very popular with tourists. We will spend around 1.5 hours sightseeing before heading back home.
