Was a brilliant day! Julien, our driver, and guest bus tour guide, Andrew went above and beyond to assist us as we both rely on walkers. Only a slight complaint, we stopped for one hot meal for lunch , and time to have a second meal would be helpful.

Small day trip to spend an extra day in Scotland

It was day well spent. Julian our guide was very passionate about wick - the place where he grew up and shared many of his memories with us . John O’ Groats- the north end is a place worth a visit for a good photo opportunity and splendid walk along the beautiful coastline. Dunrobin castle - beautiful piece of architecture with well maintained garden next to the sea . The walk through the castle reflects the life in those days

This a great tour. Julian is a native of the northern area so we learned all types of things throughout the day. Marita shared many interesting bits of history about the land, animals and people. Both were very knowledgeable, friendly and made me laugh. Dunrobin Castle was awesome. I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour with a really interesting commentary by the tour guide, Ray. Good stops and enough time at Dunrobin Castle to include a falconry display which was excellent. Fascinating stops and wonderful music on the bus. Highly recommend this tour.
