Route

This route will be a climb out off Inverness onto the B9006 until we reach the Battlefield. You will have an hour to explore and learn about the Jacobite rising of 1745.
A short cycle, all downhill to Clava Cairns. The Clava Cairns were a clear inspiration behind Gabaldon’s ‘Craigh na Dun’, where Claire was first transported back in time into the turmoil of the Jacobite rebellion.
Clava Cairns has a huge amount of Highland history stored in its standing stones and the graves of long-dead natives. The site itself is a beautifully preserved prehistoric Bronze Age location that has been dated at about 4000 years old.
You can enjoy a 20 minute stroll around the stones.
Before we head back to Inverness we will take you just along the road to see Clava viaduct built in 1898. This is the longest stone viaduct in Scotland, worth showing you. Homeward bound now.
We will allow 3 hours for this route.
