" We're proud of the Scottish Highlands, let us share it with you during your Shore Time "


The principals at Highland-Excursions are themselves experienced Cruise Travellers and as such fully understand that you are only stopping for a very short period of time and with several seasons under our belt have the experience to get you around the things you want to see within your time frame whatever that may be. Please contact us and let us know what port you are arriving at and let us help you plan your shore time ashore to ensure you enjoy fantastic attractions, superb scenery and where required excellent quality food and shopping destinations. We will also ensure you get back to the ship in plenty time for "all aboard". When you leave Invergordon basically turn left and head South to the attractions located around the relatively busy Inverness area or turn right and head for the much less commercialised North. Either use one of the suggested tours, or make up your own, decide on the day if you wish !
