There’s a real sense of history as you drive around the Highlands of Scotland. Our historic country abounds with tales and legends of saints and Picts, of Viking invaders and endlessly warring native clans. It is a long history, much of it bloodied with battles, and it has left the countryside rich in antiquities and burial chambers, standing stones, brochs, forts and castles which can be seen wherever people found land to settle.
Our Historical Scotland Heritage & Archaeology Tour commences with a relaxing scenic drive through our stunning Speyside landscapes, your will drive past the haunting ruins of Lochindorb Caste dating back to the 13th century Loch in dorbh means “loch of trouble” without a doubt this castle had many years of trouble when it became the property of one of Scotland’s most unprincipled villains.
Alasdair Mor Mac (Big Alasdair) better known in our history books as The Wolf of Badenoch and the natural son of King Robert11 . He was most renowned for the destruction of Elgin Cathedral one of Europe’s most beautiful places of worship. The cathedral still stands in its ruinous state to this day.
