Invegordon’s dock in Comarty Ferth was our pick-up spot for our private tour with Gavin Nicholson the owner of Invergordon Tours—(www.invergordontours.com).
Gavin is the perfect host! We were treated to a whirlwind day packing as much as Gavin could give us and his selections were amazing.
We started out with a stop Struie Hill viewpoint overlooking the nearby Dornoch Firth —
then on to the Falls of Shin, after a quick nip of some fine Scottish whisky. We wanted to see the salmon run up the falls, but alas, they were hiding.
Our morning ended with a stop at two area distillers — Bilblair and a full tour of Glenmorangie.
After the tour we stopped for a ‘wee’ bit of lunch at a local restaurant. We were treated to the traditional Scottish dish of “Haggis.” It used to be made in a sheeps stomach pouch, but we think that practice has been “b-a-a-a-a-a-nd.”
After lunch we scurried over to Dunrobin Castle for a look inside and on to a fascinating exhibition of Falconry as demonstrated by a local expert —
If that weren’t enough, Gavin continued our journey through the picturesque town of Dornock (pictures later) and then back to the cliffs of Invergordon.
