Day Three

A day to the Black Isle peninsula, Beauly and Loch Ness. Cross the Kessock Bridge to be surrounded by Firths on three sides, and take in the scenery of sandy beaches, wildlife and beautiful countryside on the Black Isle. Make sure you look out for those dolphins too! Spend some time in the charming 18th-century town of Cromarty, known for its quaint fishermen's cottages and Georgian merchant houses. On to beautiful Beauly, home to cherry blossom trees, award-winning independent shops and the remains of Beauly priory before visiting Drumnadrochit. Keep an eye out for Nessie as you journey along the shore of Loch Ness. There have been many claimed sightings of the famous Loch Ness Monster but even if you don't catch a glimpse, this area has beautiful views.
