10,000 years of history in 90 minutes!
Inverness has a rich history which is brought to life in this fascinating tour. The tour starts at the end of the last ice age and brings you through to the present day via a tsunami and earthquakes, Pictish kings, Christian missionaries, power hungry clan chiefs, witchcraft, prophecies, battles, deceit, murder, corruption, slavery and opium dealing – and that’s just for starters!
We’ll also show you some fascinating (and sometimes gruesome) places, which many locals don’t even know about, including a church used for executions, the building where the story of the Loch Ness monster began, the grave of the son of the Devil and the place where the last witches were ‘legally’ executed! With some great local stories thrown in to boot, this really is the best way to get acquainted with Inverness!
