This tour is a bespoke creation on behalf of Highland Titles and conducted by Hame Tours. It is exclusively designed for visitors who wish to purchase, or have already purchased, their own souvenir plot of land and will hold the title of a Lord, Lady or Laird, a memorable and lasting purchase.
The starting point for the excursion is Inverness, the Highland Capital. Collection can be arranged from your hotel, airport, rail and bus terminals. Transport from other areas can be arranged and would be priced separately.
You would travel with a driver/guide from Hame Tours, either in one of our executive saloon cars, or an eight seater Mercedes Minibus (7 passenger seats.) Prices are all inclusive (not per seat). The rate is £50 per hour for the saloon car and £60 per hour for the minibus. A minimum of an eight hour day is envisaged. To maximise your time with Highland Titles the guide will suggest that we drive you initially to the Estate giving you a commentary on the many points of interest throughout the Great Glen. This will cover the history and views of this beautiful and romantic area of the Highlands. You will have an opportunity to decide which of the other attractions you would like to visit on the return to Inverness and how much time to allocate to your visit.
“The tradition of Highland Hospitality is a warm one. The hand of welcome has always been extended to people who have set foot on our soil. In times past, when the Clan Lands of our people were purged, many had to leave our shores. Deep within their hearts the longing to return never faded, and, to this day, many people throughout the world have heard the call and want to connect with their own inner yearning to visit The Highlands of Scotland.
This tour to your own piece of Scotland gives you a choice of travel. Leaving Inverness both options will take you along the shores of Loch Ness. We either start from the south side or the north side of he Loch. You will have the opportunity to, discover our natural Landscapes and capture the magnificent scenery whilst enjoying the company of our fully experienced native guide.”
South Side Tour
Heading towards the small village of Dores, we experience the sheer expanse of Loch Ness flanked on either side Scottish Bens (Scots for Mountains). Travelling south along the shoreline we arrive at the Falls of Foyers, a smoking waterfall that thunders 165 ft. down the rocks before escaping into Loch Ness. We advise a level of fitness should you wish to take the walk down to the falls as it is quite steep.
Onward now to Suidhe Viewpoint, at a height of 1,200 ft. above sea level we offer another photo opportunity where you can capture this stunning landscape nestled above peat clad heather moors.
North side Tour
Again we travel along the shoreline of Loch Ness, through the village of Drumnadrochit , a chance to photo “Nessie”perhaps, before heading towards the ruins of Urquhart Castle, the second most visited castle in Scotland enveloped in 800 years of Scottish History, and famous for its part in The Wars of Independence.
Close to here is the memorial to Sir John Cobb , who was killed on the loch in 1952 while attempting to break the world water speed record in his Speedboat Crusader.
Either tour takes us the entire length of the loch, (some22 miles) before arriving at Fort Augustus. This picturesque village was the site of one of the three Forts built in the aftermath of the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. In the centre of the village runs a series of Canal Locks, part of the Caledonian Canal, built by the famous Victorian engineer Thomas Telford to allow a safe and quick waterway from the east to the west coast of Scotland. We then proceed towards Invergarry, where we can view the Well of Seven Heads, a memorial sitting alongside Loch Oich, commemorates a gruesome incident that took place in 1663.
We are now in the Highland Region of Lochaber and drive along the shoreline of Loch Lochy, the third deepest Loch in Scotland, flanked by mountain slopes dropping into its waters.
Soon we arrive at The Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge and ahead of you is the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis towering 4,406 ft. above sea level.
After a possible photo stop at the memorial we proceed to Fort William. Here you have the opportunity to visit the ruins of Inverlochy Castle, a site of many bloody battles in Scottish History. Leaving Fort William our drive takes you along the shores of Loch Linnhe towards Glencoe, one of the most haunting and forbidding glens in Scotland. An area drenched in the treachery of the Glencoe Massacre which took place on the 13th February 1692 .
We then return towards Duror and stop at Glencoe Woods our Highland Estate Nature Reserve. Here you will be presented with your title and the opportunity to visit your very own part of Scotland. The estate belongs to many people throughout the world all of whom are delighted to be part of our on-going conservation project.
Returning to Inverness we travel the same route to Fort Augustus and reverse our journey (whatever your choice) to allow you to have a full scenic tour of the Great Glen.
