I am just back from my Arran adventure and I had the most brilliant time!!
Graham was a great guide.Full of chat,really friendly and knowledgeable.He made sure we got to see as much as we possibly could in the time we had.
I love travelling with Rabbies and will definitely be booking another tour soon.

I can't rate this experience with Rabbies highly enough! Service from start to finish was excellent, so well organised, smooth and seamless. We had a wonderful group of people on our tour, nine of us plus driver guide Pete. Pete made the trip for us, he has wonderful knowledge of Arran and Scottish history to share which we thoroughly enjoyed along with the personal stories and music played when on the bus, he is so nice, helpful and accommodating. The island itself has wonderful scenery to enjoy and explore with plenty of time allowed at stops and choices on how you want to spend your time in each. We were blessed with fine weather for the whole trip and lovely company and good accommodation to suit us. Wow, everything about this trip is a wonderful memory for us, we had such a wonderful time. I thoroughly recommend a tour with Rabbies and hope we will do another with them in the future.

We were a very small group (sorry for those who didn’t make it because the weather was superb!) and so had lots of opportunities to personalise our options. Tour guide Peter was just great - interesting and flexible and his knowledge of the area and history really enriched our experience. Many thanks.

This was my third Rabbie's tour - I did 2 great tours last year but hadn't visited Arran before. I was incredibly impressed with Rabbie's - while on Arran, Storm Ali hit and the ferries couldn't dock. We had to spend another night on the island and Rabbie's took care of all the logistics for this. Our tour guide, Graham, was charming and v informative - we couldn't have asked for a better guide. A small group tour is perfect for me - I can enjoy the great scenery, and see a lot of the sights, without gripping a steering wheel and wondering why I thought I could drive on the other side of the road comfortably! Seriously though, it's such an easy way to travel and I liked that Rabbie's would arrange my accomodation for that part of the trip. And the fact that it's a small group tour is WONDERFUL. Really great way of seeing and learning about a beautiful part of Scotland.

This was my second Rabbies tour (first reviewed in 2016), and I'm proud to say that their standards have not dropped. Was blessed with good scenery in Arran throughout, accompanied with good playlists that celebrate Scottish music.

Rabbies were professional right from the get-go by providing me information on what to bring and where I would be staying. Gill was also an amazing driver-guide, who offered captivating stories behind Arran and Scotland. Anyone who gets her is a blessing as she really loves what she does, and at many times feels more than a friend touring with you as well.

Rabbies may be a small group tour operator, but they deliver BIG on what they promise on their website (in terms of what you will see). I doubt you will be let down.

Hi there, Thanks so much for coming back - and for sharing such lovely feedback about your recent experience. It's great to hear that Gill's enthusiasm was so captivating and inspiring, it definitely sounds as though she helped make this a special and memorable tour. We hope it won't be another 3 years until we see you again! All the best, Aimee

As a Scot returning to visit Scotland with family after 17 yrs living overseas this trip was full of nostalgia. We were bleased with the weather - 3 days of sunshine - and the tour was jam packed with stunning scenery, scottish tales and history from our informed guide and seasoned story teller Pete. We were entertained throughout the trip with insights and historic tales from Pete who went out of his way to share his passion for Scotland and gave us constant opportunities to capture the beauty with photo stops along the way. The Isle of Arran is stunning and has lots to see and do. Our accommodation at Ormidale Hotel was perfect - great breakfasts, evening pop quizzes and friendly, welcoming hosts. I would highly recommend the trip and rabbie's tours for anyone visiting Scotland. I will certainly be back with my family.

Hi Kristy, We're so glad that you enjoyed Arran - it's a less well known part of Scotland so it's a bit of a hidden gem but we completely agree it's stunning and there's so much to see and do for such a wee island! You were in good hands with Pete, it's lovely to hear how much he enhanced the tour. Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts and recommendation. All the best, Aimee
