Invergordon - cruise scenic Scotland with MSC Cruises and explore the Highland heartlands
If you are stirred by the wildly romantic Highland landscapes or love to hear the haunting skirl of the bagpipes, this is the place to come ashore. Heritage and history, romance and landscapes, Scotland has it all. The charming town of Invergordon is a key port of call for luxury MSC liners on our Northern European and Nordic Cruise itineraries, and is the gateway to the picturesque Highlands.
Invergordon is located on the Cormarty Firth in a deep natural harbour and your luxury MSC cruise ship will dock in the modern terminal here. Before you head off for the day, stop to admire the town’s 11 intricately painted murals depicting local life and landscapes. The best way to make the most of your holiday time is to join us on an MSC Cruise shore excursion package; we have day trips that take in key sights and offer great deals on local attractions. Visit Loch Ness and hunt for the fabled Nessie Monster, or journey into the thriving city of Inverness, a great alternative to better-known Edinburgh.
Literature lovers can see their favourite Shakespeare play come to life with a visit to 14th century Cawdor Castle, which features in the dark tale of Macbeth and is still home to the Cawdor family. Other noteworthy monuments in the area include Dunrobin Castle and Brodie Castle, as well as the stunning Dornoch Cathedral, a beautiful 13th century church (and Madonna’s wedding venue!). Visit a tartan-weaving centre and see how Scottish plaid is produced, or one of the many whisky distilleries in the area; there are many opportunities for sourcing quality souvenirs and a token reminder of your cruise vacation in Scotland.
