This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Struie Hill Viewpoint, B9176, Alness IV17 0XR, UK

We will head out north from Invergordon to the viewpoint from Struie Hill, also called "Million Dollar View". Looking across Loch Migdale, we will be able to see two Sights of Special Scientific Interest on the other bank.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Falls of Shin, Achany Glen, Lairg IV27 4EE Scotland

Between May and September, the Falls of Shin visitor attraction offers one of the best places in Scotland to see salmon leaping upstream. Throughout the summer, salmon return from the ocean, up the Dornoch Firth and Kyle of Sutherland to attempt to reach their spawning ground. Before they reach this, they must get past the waterfall on the River Shin. From the viewing platform, you can watch as they try to get up the river as well as enjoying the views up and down the river.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Dunrobin Castle and Gardens, Golspie KW10 6SF Scotland

Resembling a French Chateau, this castle can be best described as like something out of a fairy tale. It originally dates back to the 1300s and has gone through a number of changes and additions through the centuries. Ticket prices includes entry to falconry display, museum and gardens.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve, Golspie IV25 3JD Scotland

Here you may have the chance to see harbour seals as they bask on the beach. We will also take in Edderton Old Church which has some ancient Pictish stones which you can see.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Jail Dornoch, Castle Street, Dornoch IV25 3SD Scotland

The old jail in Dornoch is now a shop selling a wide range of Scottish goods. This is an opportunity to buy that tartan scarf, or box of shortbread. Next door is a whisky shop as well as a bistro should you wish to take lunch.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Dornoch Cathedral, The Cathedral High Street, Dornoch Scotland

This 13th century church built during the reign of King Alexander II is still in use today. The cathedral burnt down during the 16th century and was restored again during the 1830s.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Edderton class one pictish carved standing symbol stone, 8 Station Rd, Edderton, Tain IV19 1LA, UK

From here we will head to the Old Church where we will see the Cross Slab. This is a Pictish stone standing in the old graveyard of Edderton, Easter Ross. The slab is made of red sandstone and originally was sunk a lot deeper into the earth. This was raised to it’s presumed height which is noticeable given the lack of lichen on the bottom part of the slab. The slab is decorated on one side with a celtic cross, and the other side, there is a horseman with two further riders below.
