Invergordon Shore Excursion - This tour is best for those who only have limited time. You enjoy a scenic drive and lake cruise along the beautiful Loch Ness plus a visit to the Urquhart Castle, which was once one of the largest castles in Scotland.

After meeting your guide in Invergordon you start your scenic, passing over the Moray Firth on the Kessock Bridge. Upon arrival at the Clansman Harbor you will board a boat for a cruise along Loch Ness. This cruise allows you to see some of Scotland's most scenic countryside. You will disembark the ship at the Urquhart Castle.

Urquhart Castle was built in the 1230s on a strategic spot with the cold waters of Loch Ness located on three sides of the site. In 1296 the English seized the castle and then in 1545 it was sacked by the MacDonald Lords of the Isles. Finally, in 1689 the castle gate was blown up with gun powder by its own government soldiers so that the Jacobite rebels could not use it. After that it was never used again and fell into ruins. Today the castle is owned by "Historic Scotland" and you can tour the castle ruins, castle tower and its modern visitors center which contains an array of medieval artifacts found at the site. If there is time, you can enjoy a stroll along the loch or enjoy a cup of coffee from the terrace overlooking the loch.

After enjoying these highlights of Loch Ness, you return to the pier in Invergordon.
