Mallaig and meeting Angus...

Mallaig and meeting Angus and Honey. I thought we would have spent more time on the actual steam train, our train journey seemed too breif.

An amazing day out, well worth it!

Had an amazing day being driven about by Rich, our driver, in a little yellow Haggis Adventurer bus. He had us in stitches with his humour, but he was also extremely knowledgable about the history of all the places we passed through & visited. We thoroughly enjoyed our thirteen & a half hour day with Rich making our time so pleasurable.

One of the highlights of our trip to Edinburgh. Our guide Rich was very funny and informative and made us feel very safe with the safety measures in place during the covid pandemic. I would highly recommend this trip , plenty of stops and comfort breaks and the scenery is spectacular throughout,loved every minute.

A fantastic day trip in the Scottish Highlands

We really enjoyed the tour of the Scottish Highlands and the trip on the Jacobite steam train. Dougie was our tour guide and provided a great experience with both Harry Potter and Scottish history and film information along the journey. We traveled with our 5 and 7 year olds and they were very comfortable and entertained the entire trip. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a day trip across the highlands and a fun experience on a traditional steam train.

Memorable Birthday Tour

Great tour. Plenty of stops and comfort breaks to take pictures. Our tour guide Callum was very knowledgeable and entertaining, which made the tour much better (great asset to your team) . On a slight negative, maybe worth offering if possible first class tickets on the jacobite train portion of the trip as this is the main draw of the tour. If seated on the wrong side of the train from Mallaig, you miss the majority of the scenic sights.
