A lot of driving looking at monotonous landscape for hours. Do not seat at the back of the bus, the B roads are bumpy. Make sure you book your lunch before the Loch Ness cruise. I have chosen the tour without whiskey component, we were still taken to a whiskey store.
The Trip was great. The dunnotar Castle is of course a wonderful place but the walk to the vats with climbing up the stones was a great experience. It was optional to climb up there and suprisingly almost the whole group done it . I can rly recommend the Trip.
Excellent excursion. Neil was great. Showed up in authentic quilt, very nice touch. Very approachable, very knowledgeable. Even added a secret stop with was above and beyond just because a member of the group asked a question.
Other than the rain, it was a magical day and I was able to see many more sights than I expected to! Our guides were a wealth of interesting stories and information, but also left us alone if we wanted to explore on our own.
Castle is very interesting, be prepare for many steps access to the site. Waterfall - is 5 Minutes photo stop. There is not enough “meat” on the tour. They should have added another castle or garden.
