We had the best time on this tour. I learnt so much I had to take notes on my phone - really interesting! By far the best part of this trip is the distillery tour it was very well organised and we had lots of fun! Our tour guide Kev was extremely knowledgeable and fun and he really made the trip! Even though there was a lot of driving I think it may have been my second favourite part as it meant we got to stare out the windows and take in the magnificent highland views.

The tour began with the distillery visit. It was interesting but maybe a bit early for too much sampling. (But we survived the experience.) I had expected to visit more than one distillery (maybe I didn't read carefully enough) but as it turned out, the one was enough. The rest of the tour was scenic. By comparison with the tours to the west and north of Inverness it was a bit less exciting, but still very enjoyable. The location visited in the Cairngorms was very pretty and peaceful.

Enjoyed the trip, have been around the Cairngorms before, so I found some stops interesting but others were odd choices, like the visitors centre for an hour, an hour isnt enough time to enjoy one of the walks but too much time for the visitors centre etc The stops probably worked prior to COVID-19 but should be adjusted.
