Connell Outdoor Pursuits
An impressive and organised array of day tours, from archery, to clay pigeon shooting, and sea fishing boat trips from Dornoch! If you're visiting in the colder months, be sure to embark on the thermal imaging wildlife safari, where you can spot everything from deer to hedgehog (September - April).

Tours can be tailored to suit your needs, so why not sit back and enjoy the scenery on a longer day trip - to the north visit Smoo Caves and try zip-lining near Durness, or venture west to explore the Bone Caves before indulging in local seafood at Ullapool.

Cruise Loch Ness 
The beauty and mystery of Loch Ness is incentive enough to embark on this tour. While there are several cruises operators on Loch Ness, many depart from Fort Augustus. Cruising with Jacobite allows departure from Dochgarroch Lock or Clansman Harbour, which will shorten your car journey by around 40-minutes each way.  

Jacobite have a range of cruises that range from 50 minutes to 2-hours.

Orkney Islands Day Trip
The Orkney Islands are located off the north coast and boast a rich history dating back over 5,000 years. After a 40-minute ferry crossing, you will visit all of the main attractions on a comfortable tour bus, and use the Churchill Barriers to reach 5 different islands!

Given the 8.45am departure from John O'Groats, this will be a full day trip from the Farmhouse - but most guests who base themselves for a longer stay with us will choose to take this tour and they always come back so glad that they did.

Book the Maxi Day Tour with John O' Groats Ferries online.
