WHAT TO DO ON YOUR VACATION

Day trips: Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle, the Old Man of Storr and Isle of Skye, distilleries along the Malt Whisky Trail, Cairngorms National Park, Glencoe and Fort William (Ben Nevis), the Culloden Battlefield, Black Isle, and much more.

Sightseeing: Inverness is the capital of the Central Highlands of Scotland and the perfect departure point for exploring this beautiful region. Take a boat ride on nearby Loch Ness and tour the ruins of Urquhart Castle. Cross over to the Isle of Skye and hike its dramatic landscape; see Eilean Donan Castle and Kilt Rock. Tour the Whisky Road and learn about Scotland’s distilling tradition. The scenic North Coast 500 coastal drive is nearby and sections can be done as day excursions. Throughout the region are forts, battlefields, castles, parks, and hiking trails to explore. Get out into the lush green and inviting lakes and glens of this remarkable corner of the UK.

Off-the-beaten-track attractions that can’t be beat: Visit some of the smaller, family-owned whisky distilleries like Speyside, where they make whisky in the pre-70s style. Hike the back trails on the edges of the Isle of Skye. Settle into some of the cozy pubs of Inverness for a vibrant trad session, when local musicians drop in to play to play and sing together. Rent a bike and explore the local parks. Or learn about local history at Fort George. Explore archeological sites like the Bronze Age circular tomb at Clava Cairns. Road trip into the countryside. Or try some golfing in the place where the sport was born.

Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in :

"We thoroughly enjoyed the Highlands. This was a bucket list trip, and it exceeded our expectations. Having a car gave us all the flexibility we needed." Anita and Tom LaHouse

"The Isle of Skye was awesome! But my favorite was the Orkin Island and Skara Brae...totally bewitching to think how old it is! And Orkin ice cream....I still dream about it! Scotland is a beautiful country, with its long and storied history...and the people are lovely and helpful (with 1 or 2 curmudgeonly exceptions)." Patricia Smart

"Untours plans were so well thought out that we were free to simply enjoy the area and our activities. Local assets(Duncan 1, Duncan 2, Paul) were terrific backups. Between your preliminary work and their support, we couldn't go wrong." Greg and Margaret Thompson
