About This Deal
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Cairngorm Mountain, CairnGorm Ski Area, Aviemore PH22 1RB Scotland
We start our tour by travelling over the Slochd summit into the Strathspey and Badenoch region of the Highlands of Scotland, before making our way into the Cairngorm Mountains. Take in the fabulous vistas, as we ascend the Cairn Gorm mountain (meaning “blue cairns”) and investigate whether the peaks are dusted with snow. Perhaps you will come across some of the reindeer, the only herd of these magnificent creatures in the UK?
Duration: 40 minutes
Stop At: Loch Morlich, Glenmore Forest Park, Aviemore PH22 1QU Scotland
Next, visit Loch Morlich, and gaze across to the Cairngorm mountain range from this absolutely stunning viewpoint. Hear all about the “Grey Man of Ben Macdui”, and some of the other folk tales about this beautiful freshwater loch.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Ruthven Barracks, Kingussie, Newtonmore Scotland
We visit the foreboding Ruthven Barracks, which despite being ruined, demonstrates how dank and despairing 18th century military architecture was. Ruthven is also where the defeated Jacobite troops congregated in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden (1746), ready to fight on, only to receive word from Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) that the 1745 uprising was over. For fans of the Outlander franchise, Ruthven Barracks will give an eerie insight into what a military prison/barracks, similar to that in which Jamie was incarcerated, may have actually been like.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Highland Folk Museum, Aultlarie Croft Kingussie Road, Newtonmore PH20 1AY Scotland
Still on the Outlander theme, why not wander around an extremely impressive and authentic replica of an 18th century Highland village? So impressive is this reconstruction at the Highland Folk Museum, that it was chosen as a location and features in Season 1 of the Outlander television series.
