Tours of Fort George and Clava Cairns are both highly requested of us and it’s not hard to see why! These two locations are amazing parts of Inverness’ history and provide a great opportunity to investigate both the military and cultural aspects of Highland culture.Cawdor Castle was built in the 14th century, by the Thanes of Cawdor, with the ancient medieval tower built around the legendary holly tree – wherever you look, Cawdor Castle is steeped in intrigue and history.Around 4000 years old, the series of stone cairns are all that remains of a Bronze Age cemetery, crematorium, sundial and calendar and are just above the River Nairn. An important remnant of the past of the local Scots, the Clava Cairns has become a major tourist destination in recent years thanks to the popularity of the Diana Gabaldon book series and TV show ‘Outlander’ which drew inspiration from the cairns for the ‘Craigh na Dun’ locale which sent the hero Claire Randall back in time to Jacobite Scotland!
