Fantastic two day tour - accessing sites you could not see without a car!
Dec 2019 • Friends
I had a fantastic time on this tour with Stuart (in a kilt). The bus was comfortable and the small sized group was nice. We travelled at a good pace and spent appropriate times at our stops, especially as it is Winter and there are minimal day light hours. Because of this, we did not see all the stops listed on the site (had to pick between Wallace Monument and Glenfinnan Viaduct), though it still felt like we tried to maximise our time. The photo stops were one of my highlights - the stunning scenery was something you simply cannot absorb if on public transport, and much harder to try and navigate on your own if you have a car. Stuart was great at sharing history and knowledge to us for the entire tour, which was another highlight that I really appreciated. As soon as we set off in the morning, Stuart was sharing stories, and he continued to do this up to the end of the trip, even as we were driving in the dark back to Edinburgh. I felt his knowledge really enhanced the trip experience and I learnt so much from him!

Some feedback I would share would be about maximising daylight hours in Winter - I felt we could have begun the tour earlier in the day (for each day) to really maximise daylight, perhaps an option on the second day which could be offered to the group (who are happy to wake up earlier) if the first day start time is not negotiable. The hostel option provided by the company was certainly cheap, though quite dilapidated and small (but for only one night, guests can decide for themselves if that is okay!). The only other slight disappointment I had was not being able to visit the interior of Eilean Donan castle. I had specifically chosen this weekend as I had looked up the relevant websites and confirmed it would be open to the public, only to be told on the day that in fact it was closed due to a wedding. However, as we walked around the castle, we realised they were accepting visitors, by which time it was too late to buy a ticket to visit. If the staff could double check their facts again this situation possibly could have been avoided.

However, overall this tour was excellent. I saw lots of beautiful Scotland and learned lots from Stuart. Would highly recommend this tour as a quick option to see some of the highlands!

Unforgettable
This tour is the only way to visit highlands and castles without renting a car. Distances between points of interest are big and with public transport is impossible to catch the real wild Scotland. The guide was very kind and explained us a lot of curiosity about places and history of this country. The organization is very efficient and gives support whenever you should need. We strongly suggest this tour.

Hi Stefanon1147 Thank you for your kind words! I couldn't agree more with your comments on transport. The highlands can be a hard place to negotiate with public buses/trains and our tours are designed to take the stress away so that you can sit back and enjoy the scenery! I hope we see you again in the not-so-distant future! Kind Regards Martin

Eilean Donan tour
We travelled on the two day tour to Eilean Donan castle. Marty the tour guide was great fun provided us with a lot of stories and information and entertained us through out the journey. The tour was well catered to our needs and Marty made the most of our two days considering the dark nights where against us. I would highly recommend travelling on the tour as a great way of seeing more of Scotland, and would love to do more travelling with Timberbush.

DOM'S THE MAN!!!!
Aug 2018 • Couples
We went on this 3 day, 2 night trip to the highlands and Skye with Dom (the man!) I'm from Scotland and my fiancé is Italian and we made the right choice with Timberbush.

Being from Scotland, Dom shared so many tales and stories that I didn't even know! Exploring my homeland was made extra special, especially when introducing places in Scotland to my future Italian family.

Great tour. Skye was...breathtaking (even in the rain). We dipped our faces in the fountain of youth, tried to catch fairies, fed some sheep and drank plenty of good Scotch.

Thanks again for giving us some beautiful summer memories.

Loved Glencoe and every stop!
Jenny is an awesome tour guide! It shows she loves her job! She gave us a big picture and details as we progressed the tour. She drove so well in the rain and shared so much about Scotland. Super beautiful locations, covered a lot of ground, Long drive but worth it. Don’t miss Glencoe when in Scotland
