This is a well presented and informed trip that gives you a wee quirky view of Scotland and gives you a taste for more. The price is optional and dependent on the ability to pay, but a bit of honesty on the travellers part should...More

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! We had some apprehension about going on a group tour but it far exceeded our expectations and highly recommend. The buses they use for the day trips are smaller (about 30-35 people) so you don't...More

This day trip is totally worth your time. Country roads, castles, lochs and of course the hairy coos! Plenty of beautiful landscapes and views to behold and photograph. Don't forget to get your picture taken in the nice warm hats!

The tour was an excellent experience. I would highly recommend to anyone who is local or a tourist. A lot of history behind the attractions. The driver went above and beyond in speaking about its history.
