Happy Tours Scotland - An Inverness based company...
Happy Tours Scotland is unique; a fun, independent company offering day tours from Inverness, the stunning capital city of the Highlands of Scotland. Happy Tours Scotland operates 7 days a week, 365 days a year and provides fantastic day trips throughout the Highlands and to the Isle of Skye.
Isle of Skye Tour
The magnificent and sublime Isle of Skye is an essential on any visit to the Highlands of Scotland. Our Isle of Skye Tour leaves Inverness on a daily basis, and passes through the breath-taking scenery of the West Highlands before taking in some of the most world-renowned landmarks on the Isle of Skye itself, including the Kilt Rock, Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing.
Loch Ness & Culloden Battlefield Tour
This tour includes all the best "must sees" around the Highland capital of Inverness. Discover the mysteries of the world renowned Loch Ness, and keep an eye out for it's most famous resident, Nessie the Loch Ness Monster! Take in the emotive atmosphere at Culloden Battlefield, where the last pitched battle on British mainland soil was fought in 1746. Walk through the ancient standing stones at Clava Cairns, and enjoy a dram or two at Glen Ord Distillery, just a few of the highlights on our Loch Ness & Culloden Battlefield Tour.
Glenfinnan & the Great Glen Tour
Explore the Great Glen further, following the route of the Caledonian Canal past Loch Ness side and into the spectacular West Highlands, on our Glenfinnan & the Great Glen Tour. Visit places steeped in legend, such as St Columba's Well and the Well of Seven Heads, before exploring the mighty stronghold Old Inverlochy Castle...and all this before lunch! Wander to the shores of the stunningly beautiful Loch Shiel, passing the Glenfinnan Memorial, where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his banner in 1745. Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of the Jacobite train (which doubles as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter movies) as it steams across the Glenfinnan Viaduct, a popular movie location that features in several films? On the return to Inverness, take in awesome views of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.
Dunrobin Castle & the Pictish Trail Tour
This is a truly remarkable tour, going "off the beaten track" to see some of the very best in the local area. Explore the breath-taking Dunrobin Castle seat of the Sutherland Clan, with origins that date back to the 13th century. A sight to behold, this fairytale Castle is guaranteed to inspire any imagination. We follow the Pictish Trail to visit some of the spectacular early medieval carved Pictish Stones that date back to the first millennia CE. Each stone incorporates intricate designs and symbols, some of which the meanings have been long lost in the mist of time, but that only adds to the intrigue. The Trail leads through a stunning part of the country, to locations and places that are packed with history, folklore and legend. If you don't believe us, there is even a stop to see a mermaid! Take a chance...our Dunrobin Castle & the Pictish Trail Tour will not disappoint!
Outlander & Whisky Tours
For those that love Outlander, why not feed your passion by travelling though the lands of the Frasers of Lovat, visit some of the film locations and immerse yourself in the spirit of the Highlands on our Outlander Highlands Tour. Or, if it's another type of spirit that you are interested in, why not discover some of the closely guarded secrets that are so essential in creating the finest Scotch single malt whisky, and enjoy a dram or two on our Speyside Whisky Tour?
For those "coming ashore" in the Highlands of Scotland on one of the many cruise liners visiting us this year, why not consider a Private Tour from Invergordon Port, especially designed by our team based in Inverness to give a more unique experience before returning to the ship. Or, if there is something specific, perhaps a visit to a place that was once inhabited by Highland ancestors, or to explore some of the lesser known castles that are so numerous throughout this region, or simply to adventure and find some of our hidden gems, then a Private Tour can be arranged to help create those unforgettable memories.
