What people are saying about Scottish Highlands

Excellent tour of the Scottish highlands with very entertaining guide

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.

Excellent tour with very entertaining tour guide and driver

Scotland is beautiful I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Scottish attractions outside of Edinburgh. The tour guide, Eric, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept telling stories about himself, Scotland and any other attractions we are going to or pass on our way. He also complemented many of his stories with a famous Scottish folklore song or one from the well-known bands of Scotland. The tour also provides some discount on the Loch Lomond cruise tickets. There was enough time to enjoy all attractions except Stirling castle. It is optional so we decided to explore the area around Stirling castle. Stirling city is beautiful but there wasn't enough time to go down the Stirling city and then up again as well so we were stuck with exploring just the area around Stirling castle. I think the tour should provide 2-2.5 hours at Stirling castle instead of 1.5 hours. A huge shout out to Eric and Timberbush tours for making it a memorable experience for us.

Great day out, with a great guide, visiting a lot of places

Our guide, Michael, was fantastic. Genuinely nice guy with an obvious love for his country and the Isle of Skye. He was informative throughout and encouraged questions The trip itself is very good. There are enough stops along the way to stop you being bored on the mini bus, though at some spots you aren’t there long enough. It’s understandable, though, considering how many places we visited. Being in Inverness for a few days, this was a perfect way to get out and see the scenery, with a couple of castles, and of course the Fairy Pools. They were rather busy for our visit, but nothing you. And I about that! Popular place. I’d just say I wish we had longer at each stop. I would have rather been able to stay longer the the pools, distillery, and Portree than stop off for the smaller castle photo opportunities. But that’s just me. Overall, had a great day!

Very good price and able to do both activities

Very good, the only thing is the distance from the Cruise ship. We were on princess cruise. From the cruise ship we had to get a taxi and the cost was $ 150 Pounds both ways, so if you are doing this tour from a cruise , add this cost. Still it was cheaper than any of the tours offered by princess cruise ship.

The tour was excellent very enjoyable day

The driver Alan was excellent, funny, a mind of information very knowledgable, very flexible for photo stops and obviously loves his job. Gets involved with the passengers and makes you feel very welcome. Just a shame his team lost 7-0 on the day
