Such an amazing time. We did The Isle of Skye tour. The sun came out on the second day and we saw the most perfect rainbow. It was really pretty "magical." As far as our guide, Stuart was just the best. Thank you so much for such a memorable experience.

Guide Made it Perfect
I strongly recommend this tour to everyone. The tourist attractions that we have visited in the Highlands and the Isle of Skye are simply stunning. What's more our guide Pete made this trip absolutely perfect with his experience and amiability. We have really had the opportunity to learn from him lots of things about Scotland history, traditions, music and even Gaelic! He did his best to make everybody enjoy the experience and he succeeded in. If we had gone on our own we would have never discovered this amazing routes and real Scottish life. Pete is an expert, you can ask him about almost anything! In addition the accommodation that was arranged for us really met our expectations. I am totally convinced that we couldn't have taken more advantage of our time.

Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and funny and made our trip absolutely outstanding. The scenery was breath-taking and despite the long hours in the coach, every place we got to at the end of each drive was so magnificent it was worth the wait!

I highly recommend this tour anytime of year, but if you are looking for Scotland's natural beauty in its most raw, rustic and rugged state, I'd recommend a winter visit. There were many times where I had to pause for minutes at a time and stare in wonder at the majesty around me.

Tour was Excellent
This tour was excellent. and the guide really made sure we enjoyed the trip! 5 Star!
Small village to the south of Rannoch Moor that sits on the battlefield where Bruce was defeated by the macDougalls in 1306. It was a mining community once and there is talk of a new gold mine opening.
Laggan is approximately 7 miles along the road to Fort William and is situated in the Central Highlands of Scotland, surrounded by the Monadhliath and Grampian mountain ranges. "Monarch of the Glen" was filmed entirely on location in the Badenoch and Strathspey area set against the Cairngorm and Monadhliath Mountains, in Laggan and the surrounding area.
At the more scenic southern end of Loch Ness stands the village of Fort Augustus, originally set up as a garrison after the Jacobite rebellion of 1715, and headquarters of General Wade's campaign to pacify the Highlands. Today Fort Augustus is a busy little place; full of monster-hunting tourists and boats using the flight of five locks to enter or leave Loch Ness on their journey along the Caledonian Canal.
