Just the right kind of trip for a day. Our driver cum guide Steve was very informative with a pinch of witty humour, made the entire tour super interesting. As we drove past the highlands and lowlands, Steve was sharing the history of Scotland and these places rose to life. While we spent a large portion of travel on road, the drive was smooth, the bus was well kept and there was social distancing (we were 14 in a bus of 30). The Loch Ness tour was equally well balanced. While getting to the side sear of the boat was difficult, it was overall a well balanced tour for the busy packed day. The Hairy Coo, Steve are definitely recommended.

Our viator trip had been cancelled but easily swapped to the timberbush tour for the same day. Apart from not attending the distillery due to covid, it was pretty amusing and the tour guide ensured there was never a dull moment on board.

Pleasure with history

It was a wonderful experience. The highlands are amazing in themselves, but what added to value of the experience was the enthusiasm of the driver who also was the guide. From the beginning till the end he kept the group engaged. His knowledge about the places was good. Also the narration of the history of Scotland added meaning to the trip. I enjoyed it particularly as I love history. His enthusiastic and interesting narration about the history of Scotland actually made me google it and read more about Scotland's past. The places visited were beautiful and during the entire trip timings were maintained. I would certainly recommend this trip and tour operator. PS last-minute the whisky tour was cancelled due to Covid restrictions. But that's understandable.

Amazing Highlands Tour

Thoroughly enjoyable tour with beautiful scenery guaranteed. Shame the distillery tour is unavailable during covid but I would still highly recommend. A great driver and host who provided plenty of geological history explaining how the land was formed and also plenty of history of bloody battles and massacres that took place over the years. A tour not to be missed.
