    Our guide Andrew was great. Very knowledgeable and had some great stories. Unfortunately, we we with many people on our minivan tour that refused to wear their masks. Our guide tried to enforce this day one, but gave up after that. After using another tour company for a day trip which checked temperatures and insisted on hand sanitizer and masks, I think Timberbush could improve on Covid safety.

My tour guide (Fergie) was fantastic; very knowledgeable indeed. He clearly knows the roads very well and was able to re-plan/reroute as required due to sudden road closures. He is also very good at explaining the history behind the various areas and landmarks. The trip was the first guided tour I have been on and may have spoilt me; as future guides will have a lot to live up to. Worth every penny.

Really nice tour, Stuart was really a nice extra do this trip, he had lots of stories to tell. Beautiful scenery through this trip, Loch Lomond was amazing, the boat ride is really worth it. Just a bit sad that we didn't get to go to the Wallace monument, and we were so close to it. I think that who organizes this ride should have that in mind...

It was a good, wonderful to see Glencoe, Mallaig and Glenfinnan. It was a shame the weather didn't improve through the day, however that's the Highlands for you.
