Our Reviews

“Highland Prime Tours are an invaluable font of knowledge delivered with great humor and excitement, linking the past and present in a format that’s as far from a monotone monologue as you can imagine. My family joined an Inverness/Loch Ness tour from the cruise harbor in Invergordon, and were treated to eight hours of rollicking fun through Scotland with stops at the Loch, Culloden Moor, and Cawdor and Urquhart Castles, among many other sights. Guide Elizabeth MacKay is tied to the heritage, being a descendant of Clan MacKay, which adds another dimension to the tour. I wholeheartedly recommend her services if you seek the best in Highland tour experiences.”


Jump start Your Immune System With Nettles.

Nettles - now that summer has arrived many of us are thinking of detoxing our bodies and getting out to enjoy warmer days. Today there is a growing interest in the benefits our natural wildflowers can freely offer us. Sometimes we class many of our plants as weeds, but a lot are actually good for you.
Scottish myths and legends

Bouncing into Spring with Scottish Myths and Legends

The Highlands are full of stories telling of Scottish Myths, Legends and Folklore, and many a story was told during the long dark nights of winter when the family huddled around a peat fire. Every new month would bring an interpretation and belief of the forthcoming weather cycles.

Stovies – A hearty warming meal.

Stovies - We know potatoes originated in Peru but the humble potato became an important part of the Scottish diet. This month Discover Highlands introduces you to Stovies, a fantastic dish which is both warming and flavoursome and a terrific dish to warm up the whole family on a chilly day.
