What a tour! What a tour guide! Sometimes you just get lucky! Thanks to our fab tour guide Gillian for a magnificent 3 days! Incredible tour! So much more than we could've ever imagined. Our Isle of Skye tour was so thorough we feel like we saw everything the island had to offer and then some. Thoroughly recommend this tour!

I took the West Highlands, Lochs, and Castles tour with Patrick. I had a great time and loved the whole day. Patrick had a lot of stories, information, facts, and jokes along the way. Lots of stops to get out and stretch and of course take some pictures. Great way to see a variety of castles, towns, and the natural... More

We had a wonderful trip! Patrick was an excellent guide, super knowledgeable about Scotland's history and geography. A bit zealous on the road with some of those tight back roads! He makes me want to explore the Highlands even more. I would definitely take another tour with Timberbush Tours.

We were on 3 day visit to Scotland and we are very glad we took this one day tour to Highlands. The coach was there before time and since every one reached before time, we started our tour bit early. This allowed us to make some additional unplanned stops and explore more beauty of highlands. The coach were very comforting... More

In early November we did the West Highlands Lochs and Castles tour because we had a limited amount of time in Scotland and wanted our niece to see as much as possible. The 16 passenger van collected us near our lodging at the top of the Royal Mile about 8:00AM. Our driver, Marty was well versed in local history and... More

We went on the one day Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands Tour up to Inverness and back. Our tour guide Pat was fantastic and very witty - some of his stories were very funny and engaging to listen to, and he also had very good knowledge of the locations and history surrounding them. Some of the scenery was incredible,... More

We took a two day tour through the Highlands with an overnight stay at Inverness and had a great time. Our guide was a storyteller extraordinaire, with a breadth of knowledge of the area and history. There was a good balance between scheduled activity and time to walk around on our own...it's a packed schedule though! The overnight in Inverness... More

We went on the one day tour of the Higlands with Loch Ness being one of the places we stopped at, the coach driver was brilliant as a tour guide and certainly knew his stuff, we had a few stops including a lunch break, and absolutely breath taking scenery, a must see and highly recommend.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
