Excellent Guide.

Our guide Graham made the tour very special. On arrival at Loch Lomond the cruise boats were not running due to very thick mist. He had not been informed of this and apologised. However, not his fault about the weather. He then found us a lovely village for lunch and then decided he would drive us up into the highlands which was not on the itinerary. The sun came out for us and the views over the lochs and mountains were spectacular. Then on to Stirling Castle which was fascinating. On the return journey he dropped everyone off at exactly where they needed to be. Thank you Graham.

I will be sure to pass your comments along to Graham as I know he will enjoy seeing this. Thank you for choosing Timberbush Tours. Happy holidays and all the best in 2022!

Everything was great the driver was informative . One thing should be considered is the sterling castle ticket should be included with the trip. And william Wallace Castle should be seen inside if you could include it
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hello and thank you for your review. Unfortunately we do not include the price of tickets for Stirling Castle as they need to be purchased through Historic Environment Scotland and because not everyone always wants to go into the castle, this is why it is an optional extra. As for the Wallace Monument, we do not go there as there is not enough time in the day to fit it in, unfortunately. Thank you for choosing Timberbush Tours. Happy holidays and have a safe and healthy 2022!

Adrian entertained and engaged us throughout. Font of knowledge. Perhaps a little pricey, but worth it. Didn’t get to see many highland cattle.

Amazing Scotland Tour with Timberbush’ Neil
Christian_R
, Oct 2021
The Kelpies, Loch Lomond and Stirling Castle day tour was a very memorable experience. The package was just right to everyone’s budget but apart from the breathtaking heritage sites to see was our expert and knowledgeable driver/tour guide/story teller/historian named Neil. His full description of every site, Loch, castle and building was unfolding like a storybook if you listen carefully to his story. Neil Very professional yet full of humour and expression. I am highly recommending Timberbush Tours to everyone who wants to travel around Scotland. Well done. Christian and the Gang

We loved it all. Our guide, Stuart, was amazing. He was super knowledgeable and hilarious! He just made the trip easy and fun. The Castle was everything we expected it to be. We loved the Kelpies. The Loch cruise was nice, but if I had it to do again, I’d skip the cruise and go into town. Oh and did I mention that our guide, Stuart, was fabulous!!!!
