Invergordon - Dunrobin Castle & Lovely Dornoch (half day)

Depart Invergordon this morning and head northwards through the delightful Highland scenery to Dunrobin Castle, the ancestral home of the Clan Sutherland. Over the centuries there have been many changes to the Castle including a 15th Century keep, a 17th Century courtyard and in the mid 19th Century the Castle was remodelled and enlarged. The Castle interiors are beautifully appointed and the formal gardens are exceptional. Explore the Castle at leisure or with your guide before seeing the Castle’s great walled gardens overlooking the sea.

Displays of the ancient sport of falconry take place in the gardens and you will have an opportunity to try your hand at this (if timings permit). Continue from Dunrobin to the lovely little town of Dornoch. Guests can be dropped either in the town centre or at the Royal Golf Hotel (where there is a good golf shop) – just a 5 minute stroll from the centre of town. There will be the opportunity to visit Dornoch Cathedral with your guide. There will also be some free time for you to explore Dornoch for yourselves.

Finally, enjoy the relaxed drive back to Invergordon and your ship in time for lunch.
