This trip was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.
This was an amazing, The rugged scenery was truly amazing and our guide, Duncan was excellent. This tour should be on every ones bucket list of places to go.
I cannot rave enough about our Tour guide! I believe his name was Michael and he was so informative and friendly the entire day. This tour was by far the highlight of my vacation with stunning scenery and so many opportunities to stop and take photos and ask questions. If I ever go back to the area I would definitely take this tour again!
Another fantastic tour, which I would definitely recommend. Malcolm was an excellent tour guide, with a wonderful mix of humour, history, and information about the region, in a relaxed and approachable manner. He made lots of stops, which was great, as the scenery was amazing and everyone wanted to take lots of photos. The tour group was a nice size - about 12 people - with a good mix of people. I really enjoyed this day.
The Applecross tour is not to be missed! The scenery is amazing and someone else does the driving!
If you have only one day to see landscapes of western Scotland you should consider taking this tour over the Skye trip. Skye needs more time, but you can cover a lot of Applecross in a day and the scenary is fantastic! There are no castles on this trip but the wet desert landscape more than makes up for it. Here one really has a chance to experience the desolation of the Scottish Highlands. The mountains are rugged and the terrain is generally steep - here the vistas overwhelm even the most wide angle of lenses.
Our guide, Skye, really knew her geology and plants, which was a bit of a treat as most trips are culturally based.
Our driver and guide was very good. Gave us a good history lesson. We made numerous stops along the way to do photo shoots or take care of needs. The scenery was beautiful along the way and I was glad the driver was doing the driving over the cattle pass.
Lunch was a delight at the Walled Garden. Fish and Chips excellent.
The only negative it was a long day. 930 am to 630pm.
Scenery was breathtaking. Morning stop for tea/scones not good. They were not prepared for a bus of about 20 people. Tour guide bonded too much with one passenger and forgot to detail what we were seeing.
Excellent trip! We had some fog that day but we still saw some great scenery!
Guide was very experienced with the rd to Applecross. Two things can be improved though- less time could be spent lounging at cafes and more time taking pictures or stopping at good spots for photography. Guide also needs to control the things he say as he tends to be abit careless with his words.
