A12 Inverness North Scenic Tour to Durness in Sutherland seeing Arkle, Foinavon, Falls of Shin and the north coast. This really is the most wonderful tour for those interested in the far north - Eleven Hours

Shortened itinerary NOVEMBER - FEBRUARY; due to limited daylight  

Loch Shin and our remote route to the north east of Scotland.

We collect you from your hotel in Inverness and set off through pretty Beauly and over the Struie to Bonar Bridge and Lairg. Great views of the Dornoch Firth from a mountain location.

At the Dornoch Firth we turn north westwards through attractiveCoffee at the Harrods of the North farmland and on into the hills making a stop at the Falls of Shin.

We branch north westwards from here through some very remote and beautiful rugged scenery passing mountains called Arkle and Foinavon before reaching the beaches of the far north west of Scotland.

Reaching remote Durness we take some lunch before heading eastwards along some of the finest cliff scenery of the north coast. 

Branching south at Tongue we pass Loch Loyal and see Ben Loyal and Ben Hope (low cloud permitting).

After afternoon tea at the luxurious Altnaharra Hotel (not November to February) near Lairg we take the east road over the Cromarty Firth bridge and the Black Isle to Inverness.

A great day for those who enjoy the more rugged northern scenery, but bear in mind that this is a scenic tour, not an activity tour and most of the time is spent enjoying the scenery from the car. If you would like walking you will have to take our two day north tour.

Price: £395 for guide and vehicle - check top of calendar for how many passengers each guide can carry.


Cliff scenery east of Durness. Coastal scenery just east of Durness. How does somthing so pretty turn into something so stupid and so ugly so quickly? Peat stacks drying in the north of Scotland. Loch More.
