Highland Titles and Hame Tours have together created a Scottish tour specifically designed for our Lairds and Ladies. It is exclusively designed for visitors who wish to purchase, or have already purchased, their own souvenir plot of land and will hold the title of a Lord, Lady or Laird, a memorable and lasting purchase.
This tour to your own piece of Scotland gives you a choice of travel. Leaving Inverness both options will take you along the shores of Loch Ness. The tour either starts from the south side or the north side of the loch. You will have the opportunity to, discover Scotland’s natural Landscapes and capture the magnificent scenery whilst enjoying the company of Hame’s fully experienced Scottish guide.
The North side option takes in Drumnadrochit and a chance to photograph “Nessie”, before heading towards the ruins of Urquhart Castle, the second most visited castle in Scotland. Close by is the memorial to Sir John Cobb, who was killed on the loch in 1952 while attempting to break the world water speed record in his Speedboat “Crusader”.
If travelling along the south side, we arrive at the Falls of Foyers and the Suidhe Viewpoint, at a height of 1,200 ft. above sea level. This allows a photo opportunity where you can capture this stunning landscape nestled above peat clad heather moors.
Whichever way you go, you will arrive at Duror and stop at Glencoe Woods, our Highland Titles Nature Reserve. Here you will be presented with your title, or a map of your plot (if you are already a laird) and the opportunity to visit your very own part of Scotland. The estate belongs to many people throughout the world all of whom are delighted to be part of our on-going conservation project.
Please allow a full day (8 hours) to complete the tour. Full details, and booking instructions, are on the Hame Tours website.
