What people are saying about Drumnadrochit

What a great trip! Robert, our guide, was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and made adjustments based on the small group's needs. We had plenty of time at each stop and he even added in a few extra stops. The lodging booked for us was superb. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfasts were tasty and plentiful. We saw all the sites on Orkney and a lot along the way. This is a great 5 day trip and we'd highly recommend it.

This was truly a “something for everyone” tour. We are a couple traveling with our 17 year old and are not normally tour bus people, and we all really enjoyed different aspects of the tour. Our guide and driver Alana was truly excellent. A great day!

Very good mix of activities for a nice day in the area: cruise, castle, village, whisky, and a very moving visit to Culloden. Only the whisky part was a bit ordinary, just going drinking without a tour or any explanation as to process or tasting.

Alana, our guide made it so special. Very knowledgeable and funny! The music was perfect in the shuttle bus, and we really enjoyed ourselves!! Must do again with Alana!

Very busy day, lots to see and do. Our guide was knowledgeable and punctual.
