Full Day Excursion to John O' Groats
Though there are small villages and occasional castles, such as those at Dunbeath and Dunrobin, for the most part this is a wild and spectacular coastline, terminating with the Stacks of Duncansby and John O' Groats � surprisingly named after a Dutchman, Jan de Groot, who started the first ferry service to Orkney.
Full Day Excursion to Inverness
Known as the 'Capital of the Highlands', Inverness stands astride the River Ness. It boasts an array of historic buildings including Inverness Castle and St. Andrew's Cathedral, along with an range of museums, galleries and shops.
Half Day Excursion to Black Isle
Today we visit Black Isle, which despite its name is not an island at all, but a fertile peninsula with rolling hills and deciduous woodland.
NOTE: This tour operates via Burtonwood Interchange, therefore clients travelling from towns north of Preston may wish to join direct at Forton Services.
