Our tour guide was very nice, although I cant remember his name, sorry. The tour itself though was very good, and we had a good amount of time to explore each stop. Highly recommend Timberbush to those who would like a day trip from Edinburgh.More

As a policy Timberbush do not carry children under the age 5. Pack for rain and wind temperatures really vary best to have plenty layers just in case
