What people are saying about Culloden

Magnificent circuit which allowed us to discover sublime places. A huge thank you to our friendly guide Jamy whose historical stories, legends, jokes we appreciated... We were well accommodated at all stages, the breakfasts were quite correct and we had time for lunch midday. A very good knowledge of English is necessary, we were also the only two French speakers out of the 32 people in our very nice group. I strongly recommend this very complete and very well organized circuit!

Beautiful nature. Great guide - Rob. Just please be ready for long hours of driving in the bus and catching food fast during breaks. We saw a lot in 5 days. It is also reccommended to reserve tables for dinners if you are travelling with more than 2. Good value for money. The accomodations are basic but ok for this price.

The tour was accompanied by a very nice guide who enthusiastically brought us closer to his country. In 5 days we saw a lot of the Highlands and also had time for walks and our own explorations. The nights in the bed and breakfasts were very friendly.

Daniel was an excellent tour guide as he had a great sense of humor as well as a lot of knowledge of all the sights we visited. A well organized tour as each day was coordinated and the time well managed at each stop

Very well organized. A group made up of various nationalities, so very interesting. Many discoveries,
