Full Tour Itinerary
We leave Inverness City Centre behind and travel to the pleasant seaside town of Nairn, the favoured vacation spot of Charlie Chaplin. Close by sits handsome 16th century Brodie Castle, the ancestral home of the Brodie clan for over 400 years. As befits one of Scotland’s most prestigious families the castle contains an art collection from Dutch Old Masters to modern watercolours and an impressive library containing over 6,000 volumes.
If you’d prefer you can enjoy free time in the nearby town of Forres instead. This pleasant town is one of Scotland’s oldest and is famed for its beautiful parks and gardens.
Later this afternoon you can visit Ballindalloch Castle which has been occupied by the Macpherson-Grants since 1546. There is time to visit the castle where you’ll find fascinating family memorabilia, fine furniture and paintings. Outside the gardens provide a haven in which to relax and include a lovely rose garden and tree-lined walks.
