Upon check-in, your friendly driver-guide welcomes you, as you board the luxury, air-conditioned coach. The tour travels north of Inverness, up through to Loch Fleet where you might be able to spot some seals and a range of birds. Make sure you have your camera ready! The John O’Groats tour continues on to the village of Golspie. The village, situated on the North Sea coast, is an attractive seaside resort with long sandy beaches. Enjoy some leisurely time before the journey continues to Dunrobin Castle.
Dunrobin Castle is the family seat of clan Sutherland. It resembles a French chateau with its towering spins and it overlooks the Moray Firth. Explore the beautiful stately home, gardens and museum, while enjoying some refreshments in the tearoom.
Before reaching the far north, the John O’Groats, Dunrobin Castle & The Far North tour continues further into the North Highlands through Helmsdale to the Highland town of Wick for a lunchstop. Wick, a former Viking settlement, is the principal town in the far north of mainland Scotland. Spend time exploring the town, enjoying views across Wick Bay, whilst you enjoy your lunch.
