We took a full day tour around Highlands. The tour was beautiful, we enjoyed the views a lot. Our guide Iain was exeptionally welcoming and helpful. The whole tour was narrated either by him or through interesting audio recordings and movies. We learned a lot about the Scottish history and everyday life. I would recommend this trip to everyone visiting Edinburgh.

We did the one day trip through the highlands on a very rainy day, so sitting many hours on the bus while still getting an impression of the amazing scenery was the best we could get. The bus was modern, clean toilet on board; the driver was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable about Scotland and its politics as well as history. He'd definitely earn a 5 star rating. The first stop was very touristy but it was mainly supposed to be a toilet/coffee stop on our way, so that's okay. For lunch we stopped at a place with three options: you could get food from a mini supermarket, get a snack from a bistro or sit down in a "hotel restaurant". We opted for the latter and then were really disappointed from that place (one star max! dirty tables, bad service, low quality food... worst fish and chips I ever had). In the afternoon we did not take the castle tour and boat trip. Instead the driver took us to a place with a coffee shop (much much nicer than our lunch options...) and souvenir shop. Since it was again raining heavily, we just sat down and enjoyed some hot drinks. It would have been possible to walk around and along the Caledonian canal instead. So to sum up: we got a nice impression of the highlands, had a good time onboard the coach... but the lunch stop might be re-located somewhere with a proper restaurant option.

I did the 1 day tour to the Highlands. I read the reviews here before and had second thoughts about doing it. I only had 2 days in Edinburgh and I knew that the tour was going to take the whole day inside a bus. But I took the chance and went for it. Yes, it’s a long journey and you stay a lot inside the bus. But I think it worth it. On the way, we stopped 3 times. One of them was in a place with more than 1 option to eat. Had the fish and chips and it was really good. Two stops for pictures on beautiful places. We finally got to the castle. And I must say that if you don’t want to do the cruise, I don’t think that this tour is a good option, otherwise you’ll only be on the bus. The castle and cruise are not included on the tour price (I think it’s around £ 19). And if you don’t want to do the cruise, there is no time to walk around the castle. The bus has to leave to meet the people who decided to take the cruise. And you’ll wait on a small restaurant with not much to do around. I think it’s an interesting tour. The castle is really beautiful and the cruise is interesting. My suggestion: on the cruise, maybe the guide could tell more stories about the Ness monster legend, how it started, etc. But the landscape is beautiful. Yes, we stay a lot of time on the bus, but you can see beautiful cities, a nice sunset (I manage to take nice pics from inside the bus). The driver (Ian) was really nice and easygoing person. So, bottom line: Don’t think it’s a good idea to do the tour without the castle and Cruise. But once you decided to do it, I think it’s worth it.

Thank you for your review and great feedback about our tour. We highly recommend our optional extra of taking a cruise on Loch Ness and exploring Urquhart Castle as most customers say its the highlight of the day. I'm glad you enjoyed your experience with us.

The tour was very good as was the tour guide. The two stops made - one for tea and one for lunch were extremely disappointing! Probably one star - poor facilities and awful shopping experience where mostly items made in China rather than Scotland are for sale. Very low level and not in keeping with the tour itself. Something should be done about this as there are so many better options the breaks - a portacabin is not acceptable in terms of acceptable toilet facilities! Below par in all aspects- awful food and cheap souvenirs not ideal!
