The adventure day will start on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, when a carriage will pick you up and take you towards the Highlands, where you will admire the amazing Forth Bridges. In the beautiful Highland town of Pitlochry, taste some delicious home baking.

Rory was our tour guide and he was brilliant. Gave us loads of information and stories of the history of places as we passed them. He gave us plenty of time at each stop and kept us fully informed of where we were/going. He played some grate music and had some funny jokes. It was the best bus tour I've ever been on and I can't recommend him highly enough.

A brilliant day with driver William and guide Graham. The Scottish Highlands were far more beautiful and mesmerising than on photos. Went through all four seasons of weather in one day but it made it more magical. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Murray the driver was amazing the whole way through the trip. Telling us about all the things we passed as Joking as we went as well. The views are amazing. only thing we would have changed was the waiting around at Loch Ness as we didn't want to do the castle or boat trip and all there is is a shop and cafe. so entertaining yourself for an hour and a half was a bit tricky, but that's not Murrays fault. He was great. it was a lovely day out and worth the money

The tour was amazing, we were lucky enough to travel with William as our guide who was simply brilliant. He taught us so much about the history of Scotland throughout the day and I'm pretty sure he's also a comedian as he kept us laughing from start to finish. The only thing I would change is that it would have been nicer to have more time at Glen Coe and less at one of the other stop off breaks, otherwise perfect! Great way to see the sights and learn at the same time. Would 100% recommend to all.

We had a great time on our tour, saw so many beautiful areas of Scotland and had a good amount of time to look around at each place we stopped. Our guide Jamie was absolutely amazing! He had a wealth of knowledge about everything Scotland and kept us entertained with great stories and music. Definitely recommend this experience!

A great trip that is definitely worth going on. Breathtaking views, fantastic guide. Very sociable, he had a lot of funny jokes in his party, but also stories about the area told in an interesting way, there was also some Scottish music on the board of the bus. Great atmosphere. Only the stops could be slightly longer in one place and shorter in another.

Great trip with awesome commentary. Highly recommend if you are new to Scotland and want to see as much as possible. Don’t rely on the places you stop to get food as there are very limited options and some stops there was not enough time to be able to line up, order and eat in the short time frame you were given, in particular the ‘dinner time’ stop.

At first I thought 12 hours would be a long trip to take, and going in winter with less sunlight would make it less enjoyable. But the time was well worth it and the winter experience added to the excitement as there was changes from place to place along the way, from rain to snow, overcast to clear blue skys. Our tour guild was very good and with a wonderful way of sharing history and local knowledge. Highly recommended and will treasure my trip.

Had the best day. Our driver and tour guide Rob was fantastic. Rob was very informative and had many stories to tell. The beauty of the Scottish Highlands is so spectacular I will definitely be back again. Make sure you chose the boat cruise and visit the castle. Both are awesome. Cruising on Loch Ness was gorgeous and serene. The weather was perfect and stops along the way were also fabulous. Loved every minute.
