This was the last tour of my visit, and it was a good note to end on. A bit more laid back to the other trips i'd done, with maybe less stops but more time to enjoy them, such as the ride along Loch Lomond. It was an overcast day and though it was chilly, the view was still

Dear tinamom101, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your tour, it is very much appreciated. We're pleased to hear that you found the Shore Excursion tour enjoyable with Eric as your driver-guide. I am glad you enjoyed all of his stories, his organisation and of course his extensive knowledge of Scotland. I will be sure to pass on your kind words to Eric, I am sure he will appreciate it. We are so pleased you enjoyed it and made the most of your time by looking into family clan history. It's good to hear Eric helped with this and also that your father-in-law loved it so much! We of course agree that everyone should see a Highland Coo in their life - they are very special. If you'd like to explore more of Scotland in the future, please don't hesitate to get in contact and our Reservations Team would be more than happy to help you choose a tour that you'd be interested in with less people! Best Wishes, Shea

Laura our tour guide( who I believe typically does the tours out of Edinburgh and whose father also works with timberbush) was unbelievable! She is an amazing story teller who has you listening to every word. We covered a ton of ground all the way to Inverness and on the way
