Highland Chauffeur Drive has been successfully providing a number of regular Tours to iconic and other destinations throughout and beyond the Highlands for many years. These Tours have an agreed destination, however the route can usually be modified as necessary to meet the varying interests of their clients’ en route.

Going North, Dunrobin Castle, John o’ Groats, Castle of Mey, Durness, Highland Region Whisky Tours, Strathpeffer, North Coast 500 sections, etc are all popular, with Tour times being from 8 hours upwards.

Going East, the Speyside Whisky Trail makes for a great day out, with a visit to the Speyside Cooperage being highly recommended. There are always Castles to be seen on any of their routes, some well known, and some less so. The Moray Coast also has lots of interest. For Cashmere and Vicuna lovers, the Johnstons of Elgin Tour is a must.
