The place is amazing. The Hotel is lovely with very good service and very good restaurant. The 10 lakes tour is also very nice, probable a little hurry, but enough to have and idea of the area.

Our great experience started with driver/tour guide, Elliott. Such a gentleman and well informed on the area he guided us to. The 10 Lakes was certainly worth seeing and made more interesting by Elliott and his tales.
Thanks for the experience.

This was a great trip, despite the weather being really bad. We got to see some wonderful countryside and this was definitely a highlight of our holiday. The Mountain Goat staff were very professional and at the same time very low key and friendly. This is a trip definitely worth the effort and money. Staying at Lindeth Howe Country House was a truly wonderful experience - meals and accommodation were 5 star.

Excellent trip. The hotel was very comfortable and the food most enjoyable. Best freshly cooked breakfast we have had in a long time.
The ten lakes tour was breath taking.Tony the driver/guide was first class.We felt safe on these very narrow and twisting roads and in addition he was very knowledgable.We felt we had a very good overview of the area our first visit for over 40 years and we will certainly go back in the near future.
