What people are saying about Aberfeldy
If you are in Scotland, Scottish highlands are not to be missed. If you have just 1 day, this tour is the one for you. This tour takes you through all the key highlands attractions close to Edinburgh - Queen's View, Hermitage walk, Dunkeld, Blair Castle, River Garry, Killiecrankie gorge, Glencoe, etc. The guide entertains you throughout the tour with various folklores and stories from Mary, Queen of Scots to the Scottish highlands. There is enough time to visit provided all of them except Queen's View and Blair Castle. You may require 2.5-3 hours for Blair Castle instead of 1.5 hours which is provided. As for the Queen's View, it's too beautiful to just take a few snaps and then leave. 20 mins is too less a time for that. I am a big fan for admiring natural beauty and I would require at least 1 hour to be at the spot. It was quite rainy on the day of the tour but Matt made the best of it and made sure that we enjoy all the spots even if that means we reach to Edinburgh 1 hour late.
I loved this tour. Being able to wander in the gardens at Blair Castle was extremely peaceful and restful; I was able to see and photograph many small birds. I loved Queen's View, too; it's a majestic panorama of some of the best warm, welcoming highland scenery, and I would not have wanted to miss it. The walk alongside the river at the Hermitage was excellent as well; I felt like I was out in the countryside experiencing it, not just viewing it through glass all day long at top speed. When we were riding in the coach, it was nice to drive on less trafficked back roads where I didn't have white knuckles all day as we constantly passed endless lorries and dozens of other tour vans at top speed on impossibly narrow two-lane highways, as we did on the other highland tour I took with a competing company. Graham was knowledgeable, friendly, and authoritative; he kept us safe and well-scheduled, providing all needed information for comfort and safety. I appreciated his kindness.
My girlfriend and I went on the tour on thursday the 20th of April. Our guide, Jodie, was an energetic, knowledgeable and funny guide. The views in the Highlands were fantastic and the villages we visited were cozy and filled with great local food and pastries. The Whiskey tour was interesting and we learned alot from the great guide Ross at Dewar's Aberfeldy distillery. Also the whisky was great!
We had a remarkable time on the trip and each visit was timed perfectly, we were kept entertained during the drive and visited some breathtaking spots. Iain was brilliant and his knowledge was fantastic. Would greatly suggest anyone new to Scotland to hop on this tour as it really opens up the highlands to you without wearing you out!
The tour was beautiful, the places unforgettable, namely the Queen's View, Blair Castle and the tall trees. Longing to visit the highlands again with your bus's and super professional guides. Perfect timings and impecable driving.
