  • This is absolutely amazing day trip. The best of the ones I did while in Inverness - we did not have to cover huge distances, the party was not huge, we had a guide and a driver who were just fab.
    The scenery is fantastic, if you are into mountain landscapes of course - I am.
    We were told we were lucky with the weather, and seeing Isle of Skye, Outer Hebrides and other smaller islands was not a problem.
    One of the highest located paved roads in the UK Applecross pass Bealach na Ba is gorgeus, I must admit. It's something I always forget about Scottish mountains. They don't seem very high, but then you must remember you start your journey from the sea level.
    The only downsize was a guy in front of me who was taking pictures all the time and so it was his hand with a camera in it that obstructed my view a little bit
    Thanks to Vicky and Kevin for being such fantastic guides

  • This trip was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

  • This was an amazing, The rugged scenery was truly amazing and our guide, Duncan was excellent. This tour should be on every ones bucket list of places to go.

  • I cannot rave enough about our Tour guide! I believe his name was Michael and he was so informative and friendly the entire day. This tour was by far the highlight of my vacation with stunning scenery and so many opportunities to stop and take photos and ask questions. If I ever go back to the area I would definitely take this tour again!

  • Our driver and guide was very good. Gave us a good history lesson. We made numerous stops along the way to do photo shoots or take care of needs. The scenery was beautiful along the way and I was glad the driver was doing the driving over the cattle pass.
    Lunch was a delight at the Walled Garden. Fish and Chips excellent.
    The only negative it was a long day. 930 am to 630pm.

  • Another fantastic tour, which I would definitely recommend. Malcolm was an excellent tour guide, with a wonderful mix of humour, history, and information about the region, in a relaxed and approachable manner. He made lots of stops, which was great, as the scenery was amazing and everyone wanted to take lots of photos. The tour group was a nice size - about 12 people - with a good mix of people. I really enjoyed this day.

  • Guide was very experienced with the rd to Applecross. Two things can be improved though- less time could be spent lounging at cafes and more time taking pictures or stopping at good spots for photography. Guide also needs to control the things he say as he tends to be abit careless with his words.

  • Scenery was breathtaking. Morning stop for tea/scones not good. They were not prepared for a bus of about 20 people. Tour guide bonded too much with one passenger and forgot to detail what we were seeing.

  • Excellent trip! We had some fog that day but we still saw some great scenery!

  • The Applecross tour is not to be missed! The scenery is amazing and someone else does the driving!
