    I had a great time. Our tour guide was Michael and he was superb. I loved how passionate and patient he was when I asked too many questions about history. I had the best time and learned a lot about Scotland. I will come back and I highly recommend this company. Even better if you get Michael. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • Inverness: Private Secret Hike to the Shores of Loch Ness

    Leaving Inverness down the old "Wade" road and along the alternative side of Loch Ness, take in the spectacular views before you explore the magnificent Caledonian pine woods of Foyers. Pass one of the highest waterfalls in Scotland and learn about the national bard, Rabbie Burns, including how he visited these falls before continuing down to the shores of Loch Ness itself. The track you'll take is only really used by locals, so when the loch opens before you you will more than likely be the only one their to enjoy the atmosphere and views. You'll stay for a while, taking in the calmness of this special place before heading back where some local baking will be waiting for you in the Waterfall Cafe. From there it's back up the loch via some more hidden roads, taking in the typical Highland scenery and wildlife before descending back down to the north end of the Loch at Dores Beach. Take...

    Even before the tour started we were sure that it was going to be brilliant. Jamie contacted us beforehand to hear of our interests in order to tailor the day, and even suggested other routes we could try out on the other days. On the day we were picked up from our hotel, and the whole day was amazing. Jamie is very easy going and fun and he had the full attention of our (otherwise occasionally) sully teens. They were so impressed! He is a mine of knowledge, and weaved facts, mythology and the love of Scotland into a lovely hike, which indeed was out of the beaten path of tourists, so we really could appreciate the beauty of Loch Ness and surroundings. A great highlight was the visit to Clava Cairns, it was so spectacular and again Jamie was a great source of knowledge able to put the whole site into context with the greater history for us. A huge applause from us - and we will surely book again next time we are in Scotland! Thank you!

What people are saying about Scottish Highlands

A long day but so worth it. Our guide Rob was brilliant. His knowledge, stories, jokes and games throughout the long spells on the bus were great and certainly helped pass the time. The Fairy Pools were my favourite part of the tour, nature at its most stunning! We crammed a lot in to the day and it is tiring but don’t hesitate to book it, a great snapshot in to the beautiful Isle of Skye.

We had Robert for our guide he was fantastic good knowledge, good stories and terrible jokes but kept the bus a happy bus. There was enough breaks for food and toilet.

Awesome experience overall, our guide Robert was extremely funny and knowledgeable. He made the tour really enjoyable with his attire, funny accent and trivia.

Robert is a great driver and storyteller. He is full of information. The castles and beauty of Scotland is amazing.

Beautiful landscape and Rob is such a amazing guide!
