Detailed Description

This 10 hour journey is around The Bonnie Black Isle, which on a bright summer’s day, not black. Nor, on any other day is it an island. The “Isle” is in fact a peninsula strategically lying between the broad expanses of two Firths, Moray and Cromarty. “Bonnie” (Scots for “beautiful”) will give you many beautiful views, seascapes, wildlife and places of interest.

You will depart in a comfortable car from your hotel and arrive at Cromarty, looking across the narrows, the Suttors of Cromarty and Northwards to the seaboard villages of Easter Ross. At Cromarty there is an opportunity to visit the ancient Courthouse and the scene of the only ever recorded mutiny in the British Royal Navy and the home of world famous geologist Hugh Miller.

Then you will go to Chanory Point at Fortrose, probably the best viewpoint to catch a glimpse of the Moray Firth’s colony of Bottlenose Dolphins if they are to oblige us, as they often do. This is also the historic scene of the ignominious end of Kenneth MacKenzie, the Gaelic Seer who made the mistake of offending the wife of the Earl of Seaforth (Clan MacKenzie) with one of his prophecies.

Your last stop is Fortrose Cathedral, it dates from the 13th century, though it was extended and altered in the 14th and 15th centuries.

Your pick up and drop off point is your hotel in Highlands.
