You depart Inverness and head south towards the Cairngorms National Park. Your first destination is the forest village of Carrbridge. Here you have time for refreshments and a wander around the old Packhorse Bridge.
A short drive via Aviemore takes you towards the Cairngorm Snow Sports Range and above the tree-line for a brilliant view of the rolling mountains.
You then descend to the Glenmore Forest Park, where you have free time to explore. Your options include a walk through the woods to Loch Morlich, which is one of Scotland’s most scenic and popular Lochs. You can admire a sandy beach and large and ancient pine trees before you make your way back to the mini-coach. If you prefer not to walk, there’s a café and exhibition at the visitor centre.
After a short drive, there’s time for lunch in the historic town of Grantown-on-Spey.
You follow the famous river Spey past several distilleries to Tomatin Distillery. Here, you can choose to take a tour and sample the core range of Tomatin's delicious whiskies.
From here, you return to Inverness in the early evening.
