SCROLL DOWN

inverness


Kilts, bagpipes, gaelic, clans and hot jacobites (i'm looking at you, jamie fraser) - so many of our scottish stereotypes come from the highlands and inverness, the capital of the highlands.

but this city has a complicated relationship with its highland heritage. and that is the story we want to share with you.

welcome to inverness.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Do I have to pay to go on the tour?

No, you do not have to pay. Your guide will invite voluntary donations at the end of the tour. We leave it up to you to decide what the tour was worth.

Is there a lot of walking involved?

The route is a little over a mile which includes a couple of slightly steeper pavements and some steps. However, there are lots of stops and the guide will always go at the pace of the group and adapt to your ability.

Will the tour be cancelled if it is raining?

Short of Hurricane Bawbags, the show (or the tour) will go on.

Are the tours suitable for children?

There is nothing unsuitable for children, let's put it that way. However you know your child best and will know whether they are likely to be interested in an hour and a half history tour.

I can't make the times of your public tours. Do you offer private tours?

We are happy to arrange private tours and can adapt our regular tours to suit your needs and interests. Just drop us an email on scotfreetours@gmail.com to find out how we can make your 'Outlander'-themed hen party horror tour extravaganza happen.

I have lived in the Highlands for over twelve years and have always been fascinated with the way that Scottish history is part of the landscape here. I am also an artist and the stories of the past have captured my imagination.  The characters of this area were just as wild and adventurous as the mountains and moors beyond the city. I am very excited to share with you these incredible tales. Rebellions, monsters, power struggles and natural disasters – it is all here. I am looking forward to showing you around the city and bringing them all to life.

I am a History and Politics student living in Inverness.  My primary areas of historical study are American and Medieval European history, but having lived in Inverness for my whole life I’ve always been keen to learn more about the town, and its deep-rooted connections to the wider history of Scotland and the Highlands.  Indeed, one of my favourite aspects of history is its ability to interest and engage people of all ages and from all walks of life, and I always enjoy helping people who want to know more about history learn, and look forward to doing so through these tours.
