Discover the Highlands with Highland Spirit Tours
More than 60 cruises will arrive at Invergordon in 2013. Passenger number run between the low hundreds to thousands with an estimated 90,000 plus passengers arriving in total. Most of the cruise ships docking in Invergordon depart later the same day but there's still an opportunity spend some time touring the town of Invergordon and further afield to Inverness and the Highlands.
Most of the cruise ships organise their own guided tours and excursions but there are also a number of tour guides and tour companies that can arrange your own specialised tour. These are especially good if you have particular interest like visiting distilleries and tasting malt whisky, wildlife tours or specialist historical tours or a combination that suits you.
Invergordon is about 25 miles (39km) from Inverness and it's a short trip to Culloden Battlefield, Fort George to the East and Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle to the South West. To try and tour most of these sights by public transport in a day and then return to the ship would be difficult so consider employing the services of a tour guide,
