Went on a Highland Heritage 5 day Turkey and Tinsel break. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and was even better because there was a covering of snow and the fir trees and distant mountains looked really picturesque. Our room looked out on this lovely scene and was a good size with comfortable beds two comfortable chairs and a... More

We have just returned from the Ben Doran. It was a five day four night trip including trips. In total we travelled approximately over six hundred miles from leaving home. I do not know how they managed it for the total cost of £146.00 each. The hotel is extremely comfortable warm and clean. The food more than adequate offering choices... More

We stayed 5 nights for the Turkey and Tinsel, the hotel was spotless, the meals excellent and all members of staff courteous and friendly. The drivers on the tours were very informative and cheerful and went out of their way to make the trips truly unforgettable. This is a very affordable way to see the Highlands with coach pick ups...

We stayed here for 5 nights. This was with Highland Heritage. Each day we went on a day trip with Highland Heritage. We had breakfast & evening meal. The food was of a good quality, the room was clean. Overall very good value for money.

Late choice break with friend Very satisfied with whole experience and excellent value for the price we paid. As 2 ladies we requested single rooms and were allocated a twin room each. Very well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Extra touches with bowl of fruit, small bottle of wine tea/coffee making facilities all added to the welcoming feel. Meals were... More

Disappointing Trip, Despite stating in their booking confirmation that a final invoice would be sent 6 weeks prior to the start date, & full payment must be made 5 weeks before the start date, when I did not receive the final invoice I rang to make payment & was told that they had now altered the payment schedule.

Our coach arrived at the hotel to be greeted by the manager and some of the staff in kilts etc. Nice touch! Our room in the hotel was perfectly acceptable, clean sheets, towels and bathroom. The staff are very good although a couple of items were left off our complimentary tea tray on the last day but one. Generally we... More

This was our first coach tour holiday and so approached it with some trepidation with the relatively low cost of the 5 day holiday (an absolute steal as an introduction to this part of Scotland).
