H07 Half Day Macbeth and Cawdor Castle Tour leaving Inverness, passing Culloden and Cawdor along the Moray Firth - Four Hours

The witches concoct their prophecies to confound MacbethBe collected from your hotel in one of our comfortable vehicles and enjoy a tour full of witches, murdering kings, bloodthirsty megalomaniacs, tragedy and pathos.

But expect to be surprised. Your guide will put a whole new slant on this fascinating king who was born a thousand years ago in the Viking Capital of the North of Scotland.

Elected king of Scotland in 1040, he went on to expand the nation into a country larger than it had ever been, before or since.

Why did English playwright, William Shakespeare, turn one of Scotland's finest early kings into a murdering villain and his kindly Queen Gruoch into the epitome of evil, Lady Macbeth? Your guide will enthral you with the truth about the real King Macbeth and his tragic legacy.

Cawdor Castle - Scotland's finest inhabited medieval keepAs part of the tour a visit is made to the remote and inaccessible Cawdor Castle (1st May to 2nd October only) where you can explore the fabulous grounds and/or historic buildings of what must be the finest inhabited medieval keep in Scotland.

Although Macbeth is called "Thane of Cawdor and of Glamis" in William Shakespeare's play, Cawdor Castle was not actually built until the fourteenth century, three hundred years too late!

Nevertheless it is a fascinating and romantic place to visit and will be a highlight of any Highland holiday.

Price: £180 for guide and vehicle - check top of calendar for how many passengers each guide can carry.
