I can’t fault the tour at all, our tour guide was Marty and like all the other reviews,timberbush guides are very knowledgable in Scottish history,I’m Scottish so it was old news for me,but entertaining non the less (dodgy jokes though) he didn’t have a great audience tbh...the weather was perfect and the autumn colours were outstanding,I got some great photos..the glenfinnan viaduct area was outstanding,Loch shiel particularly, my b&b was clean and comfortable..thanks for a great wee break

Hello Kaz H, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review for your Driver-Guide Marty and your Eilean and Loch Ness tour. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time with us! I am so pleased to hear that Marty made the tour even more special for you with his knowledge, Scottish history and entertainment! I am glad that the jokes did not put you off if there was a hard audience! I am so glad you were lucky with the weather and that the autumnal colours shone for your time on tour.

Our guide, Andrew, was fantastic. He told us many history and stories along the way. He is also very generous and patient.
As for the view, lucky us, we had a sunny trip. The scenery is breath-taking. The only down side is that we don't have enough time to stay in one place, since we have a long way to go.

Again, thank you, Andrew.

We took the 2-day trip from June 12th to June 13th. Our guide Stuart was great, entertaining us with Scottish music, overloading us with facts and figures and showing us some awesome views. We had time to take photos and the B&B Timberbush reserved for us was absolutely lovely. Great tour. A must.

Timberbush is a professional tour company with quality vehicles and charismatic guides. We enjoyed Stuart's humor, but we think he enjoyed it most.

You'll learn so much about the history of Scotland as you travel through the impressive glens and woodlands. The stories will bring the landscape to life. You'll enjoy the sites and landscapes, but if you're like me you'll find the food options will leave much to be desired. I can't hold the tour company responsible for the food in Scotland, but I would've liked more food options for lunch on day 1 of the tour. We passed through a beautiful town and settled on a tourist trap just outside of town for a lunch break. Then our dinner in Fort William. Bleh. We arrived at the busiest time for dinner around 7pm, so expect to wait about 30 minutes to 45 minutes for a table.

All in all, the tour was worth it.
