Loch Lomond seen at Luss village. The weather was too windy for the boat ride. Aberfoyle across the way. Blair Castle, the grounds were impressive. There was an old church ruin that was charming. Horses, hairy coos and even a peacock. But my favorite stop was the last, the Hermitage. It's actually little more than a walking path alongside a whitewater stream. The nature there was mystical. Also thanks to out driver/guide Donald whose expertise and courtesy made this a truly grand day.

I almost missed this bus, in fact I am pretty sure I did miss my bus which was scheduled to go to Loch Ness and Invernes so given that I was a bit astonished when the driver took the opposite fork in the road from invernes. Be that as it may, the trip was so educational and our driver made it so fun. Not only did I learn alot of history about all the sites we did visit, castles and ancient catherdrals included, but she even had a road trip play list for us and explained the Galic words, wow, authentic and wonderful. She was so good that when we saw the most unusual rainbow just on the mists of a loch, she turned around and let us all out to take pictures. For those who are disabled, all the walking is pretty easy but for arthritus sufferers there is some up and down which can be painful. But all options have alternatives, more flat paths, a video in Blair Castle so one won't have to do the stairs. They really did think of everything.

This was a fabulous tour. This was a highlight for our family two adults, two kids ages 12 and 14. Our guide, Iain, was funny, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about history and his country. He gave us great insight into the geography and history of what we saw, and allowed for plenty of time at each stop. Our only regret was that the tour wasn't longer, we could have gone on!

The driver/tour guide was knowledgable, witty and solicitous to the groups' needs and comfort. This was a great day out and a wonderful way to gain an insight into Scotland and its' history.

Tour left on time, bus was clean and comfortable. I felt very safe with the driver and his driving abilities.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour and company to anyone wanting to see a bit of Scotland

AMAZING -- I took many tours during a 3-week trip across Europe and this one stands out as my favorite. I was only in Scotland for 3 days, based in Edinburgh, and this was an excellent way to see the highlands, visit some small towns, and meet other travelers in a day. Our tour guide, Kevin, was wonderful and knowledgeable. I loved this tour.
