Silversea Luxury Cruises A Invergordon, Scotland

Invergordon, Scotland

The port of Invergordon is your gateway to the Great Glen, an area of Scotland that includes Loch Ness and the city of Inverness. Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, has the flavor of a Lowland town, its winds blowing in a sea-salt air from the Moray Firth. View more

The Great Glen is also home to one of the world's most famous monster myths: in 1933, during a quiet news week, the editor of a local paper decided to run a story about a strange sighting of something splashing about in Loch Ness. But there's more to look for here besides Nessie, including inland lochs, craggy and steep-sided mountains, rugged promontories, deep inlets, brilliant purple and emerald moorland, and forests filled with astonishingly varied wildlife, including mountain hares, red deer, golden eagles, and ospreys.

Excursiones en Invergordon, Scotland

Cawdor Castle & Culloden Moor

Explore the castles, clans and battles that shaped Scotland's Medieval past during this memorable, half-day excursion to the Scottish Highlands.


Cawdor Castle

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive along the Cromarty Firth and through the outskirts of Inverness en route to Cawdor Castle, the most romantic castle in the Highlands. One of the finest and most picturesque Medieval buildings in Scotland, Cawdor Castle retains a central tower dating from 1454. This legendary castle is familiar to anyone who has read Shakespeare's Macbeth, as it is the scene of King Duncan's murder.


Self-Guided Castle Tour

As you cross the drawbridge, step into Scotland's Medieval past. The castle feels like a living home rather than a museum, as it is indeed the residence of the Cawdor family. During your self-guided tour, enter the low doorways, climb the winding stairs, look out from windows set deep in massive walls and marvel at the beautiful woven tapestries. See the centuries-old stonework, snug sitting-room in the core of the Tower, forbidding dungeon, freshwater well, and the original kitchens. Following your tour of the castle and gardens, re-board your coach and drive to nearby Culloden.


Culloden Moor

No place in British history stirs the emotions more than Culloden. On 16 April 1746, a battle was fought here to decide a civil war between the ruling House of Hanover and the Jacobites. The brutal Duke of Culloden, son of King George II, and his 9,000 well-trained and equipped army defeated 5,000 exhausted, starving and ill-equipped Highlanders led by Bonnie Prince Charlie. It was the last battle on British soil, and ended the House of Stuart's hopes of regaining the throne. During a photo stop here, see wooden plaques detailing the battle, clan graves and the Well of the Dead, where wounded Highlanders were slain as they drank water to revive themselves. Following your visit, commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and stair-climbing at Cawdor Castle, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, a sweater or jacket, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Due to the local climate, most of the coaches are air-cooled. The tour sequence may vary.

Glenmorangie Distillery & Dornoch

Explore the splendid beauty, landmarks and flavours of historic Dornoch during this scenic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Glenmorangie Distillery Tour and Tasting

Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute drive into the Glen of Tranquillity on the shores of the Dornoch Firth, home of the Glenmorangie Distillery. Upon arrival, take a guided tour of the facility. Along the way, observe the production process and learn about the history of this small town, the distillery and the Sixteen Men of Tain, whose skills, expertise and incredible patience are responsible for the delightful Glenmorangie malt whisky. Your guided tour concludes with a tasting of this delicious malt.


Dornoch Walking Tour

Next, re-board your coach and proceed for a visit to the glorious Edwardian coastal town of Dornoch. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the town. At the town centre is the 13th-century Dornoch Cathedral; an island of grass and trees surrounds its cruciform shape. On December 21, 2000, the pop star Madonna had her son Rocco christened here, the day before her wedding to Guy Ritchie in nearby Skibo Castle.


After an exterior photo stop at the Dornoch Cathedral, continue on to the beach for splendid panoramic views of your surroundings. Additional sights to be seen in Dornoch include the Witch's Stone, which commemorates the 1727 burning of the last person in Scotland who was tried and condemned to death for being a witch. Following your walking tour, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, approximately 50 stairs at the distillery and standing for 1.5 hours. Walking around Dornoch is at the discretion of the guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, a sweater or jacket, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Due to the local climate, most of the coaches are air-cooled. Guests must be at least 21 years old to participate in the whisky-tasting. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment. If tour is cancelled within 72 hours of operation, cancellation charges will apply.

Loch Ness & Urquhart Castle

Explore the mystery of Scotland's most beloved legend during this memorable, half-day excursion to Loch Ness and the ruins of Urquhart Castle.


Loch Ness

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 75-minute drive south through the beautiful Scottish Highlands to Beauly. Upon arrival at the Clansman Hotel harbour, embark the Jacobite for the short cruise to the Urquhart Castle. This tour represents a unique opportunity to look for the evasive Loch Ness Monster, which has baffled some of the world's most notable researchers for decades. The deep lake, ('loch' in Gaelic), has drawn visitors from all over the world in search of the monster. The loch is 24 miles (about 39 kilometres) long, one mile (1.6 kilometres) wide and 740-feet (222 metres) deep. En route to Urquhart Castle, you can learn more about the Loch and the Monster at the fascinating exhibition at Drumnadrochit, situated on the banks of Loch Ness.


Urquhart Castle

Upon arrival, disembark the Jacobite and walk to the jagged and atmospheric ruins of Urquhart Castle, situated on a rocky promontory jutting into Loch Ness. During its turbulent history, the castle was plundered by the MacDonald clan of the Western Isle and eventually blown up in 1692 to prevent its occupation by Jacobites. Today, all that remains is a lone keep and crumbling walls. However, legends persist that a cave beneath the castle is the home of 'Nessie', the Loch Ness Monster. The path leading to Urquhart Castle offers superb views of the ruins and the loch. You can also browse the interesting Visitor Centre and gift shop.


Following your visit to the castle, commence the approximately 75-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking, including an uphill walk from the jetty to the main entrance at Urquhart Castle, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and embark/disembark the boat. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, a sweater or jacket, raingear, flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and sun protection are recommended. Due to the local climate, most of the coaches are air-cooled.

The Munro's have been at Foulis for over 600 years, and were involved in most of the major confrontations that shaped Scotland's history. Robert Munro of Foulis led his clan at Bannockburn; they supported Mary, Queen of Scots and fought alongside government troops against Prince Charles Edward Stewart in the 1745 uprising. During the 17th century, Robert Munro, the 18th chief, led 700 of his men in the fight for the Protestant cause in Sweden.
