Great adventure!

This tour was amazing. Neil was our guide and he did a great job of providing color to everything we saw. If you will only be in Scotland for a few days this is the way to go. From the Highlands and Culloden to Loch Ness and Highlander cows you won’t be disappointed!

My family and I enjoyed the Highlands and Loch Ness Tour. Alice was a knowledgeable and expert tour guide and driver, selecting beautiful locations for us to view Scotland at her best. We had a wonderful day. If time permits, we will book other tours as well. Thank Alice and Rabbies..

Excellent overview of the Highlands

An essential overview of the Highlands particularly if you have limited time on your trip. Tour guide Doug was excellent - informed and enthusiastic. Well worth your time especially as the trip covers Culloden and Loch Ness in one day if you are based over in Aberdeen.

It was a long day, but a lovely one. The guide/van driver was extremely well versed in the area’s lore and history. The weather cooperated as well. I really liked the small group approach,too.
