インバーゴードン

真実と伝説

MSCクルーズ客船からインバーゴドンへと足を踏み出せば、スコットランド北部の3分の2を占め、本島の最も壮観な風景の多くがあるスコットランド北西部のハイランド地方に魅了されることでしょう。
この土地が、人里離れていることにも驚かされるかもしれません。例えば、北にある広大な泥炭地は、ヨーロッパで最も広い手付かずの原野であり、西岸の孤立した農村の幾つかには、今でも船でしか近づくことができません。

この地方で唯一の都市であるインヴァネスは、三方を入り組んだ岩場の多い海岸線に囲まれ、美しい山々、渓谷、湖、川というハイランドならではの大自然への入り口となります。 インヴァネス城は公開されていませんが、インヴァネス博物館・美術館ではピクト人とヴァイキングの時代からの展示物により、ハイランドの社会、歴史を深く知ることができます。 MSC北欧クルーズの寄港地観光では、ネス湖を訪れることもできます。

全長23マイルと細長く、計測できないほど深く冷たい水をたたえた、時に陰鬱な表情を見せるネス湖は、木々の茂る湖畔から、急な傾斜で立ち上がる岩だらけのヒースに覆われた山肌と接し、その両端は渓谷となっています。 その名前が有名になったのは、伝説的な住人「ネス湖の怪獣」ネッシーによるもので、湖沿いに点在する集落、特にドラムナドロヒトには、ネッシー目当てに訪れる観光客が後を絶ちません。 この謎の生き物に関する最初に記録は、聖アダムナンが7世紀に著した聖コルンバの伝記で、聖コルンバが修道士の一人を襲った水中生物を大人しくさせたと記されています。 湖畔近くの岩場の上には、怪獣見物スポットとして人気があるアーカート城の印象的な遺跡があります。

    This excursion will begin with a 1-hour coach drive to Culloden for a short photo stop at the site of the important battle that occurred in 1746; the defeat of the Jacobite forces led by Charles Edward Stuart halted the intent to restore the House of Stuart to the British throne. Next, you will proceed to the village of Cawdor, seat of the eponymous Cawdor Castle. This beautiful traditional medieval castle and residence is closely associated with Shakespearefs Macbeth.

After the visit, you will have time to roam through the beautiful gardens: the larger North Garden with its soft fruits, flowers, vegetables and orchards just as the smaller Paradise, Knot and Thistle Gardens, and an orchard planted with old Scottish fruit trees.

After a short introduction, the tour starts from Invergordon harbour and will then see you speed your way to the small historical village of Cromarty. As you go, be sure to watch out for marine mammals such as dolphins and harbour porpoise (a smaller relative of the dolphin), which are frequent visitors to the area throughout the year, as well as minke whales, which only come during the warmer summer months. Then, as you head towards the Moray Firth, you will pass bird colonies, coastal cliffs with sheer drops to the water, old defences dating back to WWI and WWII as well as several other points of scenic and historical interest.

      Take a trip to Loch Ness, one of Scotlandfs most popular destinations and the site of an abiding modern monster mystery. After leaving Invergordon, a comfortable coach will take you along the Cromarty Firth, a North Sea inlet, for a first brief stop at Beauly en route to the village of Drumnadrochit, whose elevated position affords spectacular views of Loch Ness, the UKfs largest body of freshwater by volume. However, the lochfs greatest claim to fame is its alleged star resident: the Loch Ness Monster, aka Nessie. Thought by some to be one of a small group of otherwise extinct plesiosaurs, Nessie has fuelled the imagination of countless explorers ever since the story broke in the early 1930s. Have your zoom-lens camera ready for a shot of the elusive creature ? you would make history if your photo proved Nessiefs existence. The route then continues along the main road flanking the loch, with more stunning scenery before you reach the loch-side Clansman Hotel ? about as close as you can get to the water without needing a boat. As one of the prettiest spots Loch Ness has to offer, this is the perfect place to take some more photos before you return to Invergordon. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. This tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair; to reach the panoramic viewpoint at Clansman Hotel it is necessary to climb steps.
