Only 3 passengers on the bus so driver adopted a flexible itinerary, which suited us all.
Malcolm was a kind, patient and excellent host. Interesting commentary on the local areas covered. It was fantastic fun seeing the seals and dolphins at the Black Isle and the visit to the distillery was fun too.
Very good tour guide and fun experience. Will recommend to Anyone.
Beautiful countryside and with just one day we did see alot. However there was little commentary provided from our driver or helpful hints as to what exactly we were seeing. At several of the stops we were told to walk around a bit and be back in 45 minutes. Learned on our own.
The only reason I give this tour one star is because the tour of the Scotch Whisky Distillery was very, very good. Nice tour guide and very informative, I learned a lot of interesting things about making whisky.
However we saw not even a hint of any bottlenose dolphins at Chanonry Point.
The sleepy village of Cromarty was so sleepy nothing was open so we waisted time just walking around doing nothing until the van was ready to move on.
We did not go near the banks of Lock Ness, instead was taken to a nomey grabing building with a lock ness display we had to pay extra to see and a gift shop, but no where within sight or walking distance to Loch Ness or Urquhart Castle. The driver/tour guide was very nice, when I complained he pulled the van over to the side of the road so I could see Lock Ness from a distance and take a picture.
I do not recomment this tour. It was a very big disappointment.
