What people are saying about Culloden, Scotland

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.

Better than we ever hoped. No better guide/driver than Jamie. A little sad we will never meet any of those people again. Beautiful country in the Highlands. Wonderful history and ALL the people so friendly and helpful. It would be nothing better than make a return trip. Thanks to everyone.

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.

Jamie was a very knowledgeable guide on all history. It was really interesting with what he was telling us.
