Bill did a terrific job as our driver and tour guide. While not a native of Skye, we hear Bill has been going there since he was five years old and knows the island as well as anyone. His tour bus is a little older than some of the bigger tour companies, but his knowledge and love of the Isle... More

I'm not someone that generally heads on vacation to then likes to get on a tour bus. I had previously been to Scotland for a very wee stay and knew I had to go back. In doing my research for my return trip I came across Real Scottish Journeys. I like to support independent businesses and I decided to give... More

My four day tour of the Highlands and the Isle of Skye was the highlight of my recent trip to Scotland. Our tour guide Nory was BRILLIANT! Not only was he an excellent storyteller with an incredible knowledge of Scottish history and folklore, he was also incredibly kind, funny and accommodating. When two of the people in our group were... More

Let's face it--most of us who travel have neither unlimited time or funds for what we hope prove to be extraordinary vistas into new places and people. So we spend hours in pre-departure research to increase our odds it will be close to what we hope for. I tend to stay away from group tours as I enjoy discovery on... More

OK, here goes. Before writing this I read all the other 5 * reviews (and one only 4* that reads as a 5!) and can put no more in to words than the others. Quite simply this is just so much more than a man in a mini bus saying "To your left is a big rock, to your right... More

We just finished a great day out with Bill on Skye Bus. As we didn't have a car, this was the ideal way to reach some of the out of the way attractions. Bill is a great storyteller and really brought the history to life, and he has so much enthusiasm for Skye, which is contagious. An excellent way to... More
