Old Times Coach Excursions

This is an advertisement for tours in a horse-drawn coach. On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, the tour runs from Inverness Railway Station to Culloden Moor (as shown in the photograph) and on to Kilravock and Cawdor Castles. On a Wednesday and Friday the tour runs from Inverness to the Falls of Kilmorack, Druim and Beauly Priory.

The tours used a 'four-in-hand' coach, pulled by four horses with one driver. The tour operator is Macrae & Dick, founded in 1878 by Roderick Macrae and William Dick. The company once owned over 200 horses and now deals in motor vehicles.
