Sunday/Monday 10/11 July: Inverness
Today we return to the mainland of Scotland to Inverness. During our time in Inverness, we will take the Jacobite Cruise of Caladonian Canal and Loch Ness. (Free future BET tour for anyone who takes a certifiable photo of Nessie!) We will also have time to explore the charming town of Inverness–our hotel is conveniently located for easy walking access. On one of our nights we will celebrate 5 July BET birthdays–77, 82 & 83. The hotel has promised to provide a cake with “396” prominently displayed signifying the total number of collective years. I’ve already ordered enough wine and Prosecco for the occasion. Should be fun.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at the Best Western Palace Hotel & Spa, Inverness
Tuesday 12 July: Culloden House Hotel
Morning transfer to the Culloden House Hotel, a few miles south and east of Inverness where we will spend one night in the lap of luxury. At the time of the Jacobite uprising in 1745-46, Bonnie Prince Charlie used Culloden House, this hotel, as his lodging and battle headquarters prior to that decisive battle on Culloden Moor. To fully understand the consequences of this battle, we will visit the Culloden Battle Site and Visitors Center. After the visit, we will return to the hotel and bid farewell to our wonderful guide, Andy. Before dinner, we will meet in one of the hotel’s special rooms to perhaps share some Scotch that we may have picked up along the way.
Dinner, Bed, and Breakfast at the Culloden House
Wednesday 13 July: Fly from Inverness
After a final breakfast, taxi transfers to Inverness Airport for your flight home
