HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour for anyone wishing to visit Scotland and enjoy the magical nature of the Highlands and Isle of Skye. Our guide, Jim, was the best! He was extremely knowledgeable, funny, a fantastic driver, and taught us so much about Scotland's remarkable culture and history. Three days was the perfect amount of time and we really enjoyed being based in Portree at our lovely accommodation, the Springfield Guest House. We also enjoyed being in a couch van instead of a big bus. Overall, I think Timberbush is the best choice for a tour of the Scottish highlands.

The tour is amazing. Every scene in the Highland is an incredible picture that you have never seen before. The driver Andrew has tried his best to ensure we can have a good sight-seeing experience and take some great photos, in the limits of short daylight time long driving time and bad weather. Thank you.

The tour was incredibly well organised with clear timings and good communication from the company with booking accomodation on a multiple day tour. Our bus driver (Jim) was an amazing driver and felt incredibly safe when driving along one lane roads.

Trip was very worth it. Our guide Andrew was funny and friendly. He was also very flexible with the itinerary based on our interests. The accommodation booked by the tour provider was very comfortable.

Jim was our driver-guide, he was experienced with Scotland's histories, fun facts and the weather in Isle of Skye.
