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
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.
