Day 6

August 1 - Culloden then on to Orkney

Following breakfast, it's board the coach and head northwest towards Inverness where you will visit Culloden Battlefield.  

Your visit includes entry into the richly researched, stimulating and sensitive Culloden Visitor Centre, which stands beside the battlefield. It features artefacts from both sides of the battle and interactive displays that reveal the background to the conflict. It is both a monument and a guide to a pivotal day in small village of CraigellachieThe Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745. On 16 April 1746, the Jacobite army of Charles Edward Stuart was decisively defeated by a British Government force under Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, on Drummossie Moor near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. It was the last pitched battle fought on British soil..

At the completion of your visit tour, it's back on the coach and once again head north east, this time to the northernmost tip of Great Britain, John O'Groats.

There will be a short photo opportunity at John O'Groats.
