  • Wonderful 8 hour day trip away from the city to a lovely part of the Scottish coastline. Beautiful town and castle/cathedral ruins made the trip a very picturesque and relaxing setting for a day trip. Very much enjoyed working with the Highland Explorer Tours company.

  • While we thoroughly enjoyed St Andrews the time there was limited to 3 hours - much too short given the drive time. The other stops didn't warrant the additional travel time as they lacked compelling things to see or do. Better to drive straight to and from St Andrews and allow sufficient time to take in the varied destinations it has to offer.
