    This experience was just brilliant and I am so happy I decided to book this tour!! At first a full day of travelling around the Highlands seemed a bit daunting but it was so informative and entertaining, that time flew by! In the future, I would love to book a longer tour with Timberbush Tours. Our guide was the incredibly knowledgeable Andrew T. Andrew was fantastic guide (and also a very smooth driver) and his stories gave the tour a personal touch. We learned so much and I genuinely feel like my trip to Scotland was enriched by this experience. Thank you Andrew T, we can’t wait to return!

Amazing experience. It was about 370 miles travel. But definitely not tiresome. Adrian, or guide and driver was a delight. His way of explaining and telling the things was very interesting. Enough stops for refreshments. Looking to come back again.
