This was a awesome tour, Loch Carron was beautiful. Applecross the windy, hairpin narrow road what an experience so glad Luke the tour guide was driving & I just soaked it all in, the top of Bealach na Ba was cloudy but it was still beautiful, mystic. The rugged mountains, the deer/stags & heilan coos & the small villages along the way. Thanks guys it was the best tour I've been on so far in the Highlands.

Hi there, thank you for your review! I'm pleased to hear that our tour was the best tour you've been on during your time in the Highlands. The Applecross, Loch Carron and Wild Highlands tour is a beautiful one - there's such great scenery on it! Hopefully we will see you again some day to show you even more. All the best, David

This tour was absolutely fantastic. Everything we hoped for and more. Lots of wildlife, including highland cows, sheep of course, and deer. The tour guide, Luke, was very amiable, had great stories and great music. The scenery was amazing, and Luke was very flexible about stopping for photo ops. Don't miss this chance to see some of the best parts of the famous NC500, including the iconic bealach na ba. You will be very happy you booked this tour!

Hi there, thank you for your review. It's great to hear that you got everything you hoped for out of this tour and got to see the highland cows - that always makes a tour a wee bit better. I'm glad that Luke was such a great driver-guide on this tour as well. Hopefully we will see you again some day soon. All the best, David

This was a great itinerary that takes you to many beautiful sights. Driving over the Bealach na Bà was a particular highlight. Although it’s a full day and it covers quite a distance, the pace of the tour felt relaxed. Our guide Chris was very friendly and gave really interesting commentary. He also made the effort to give us plenty of photo stops. Sadly the weather turned rainy in the afternoon but it was still a great day.

I wasn't sure if join the tour or hire a car and go to the Applecross peninsula on my own.
I'm so glad that I chose the tour! not only 'cause Balach na ba road is really challenging to drive, but also because has been a really enjoyable day: Marita, our tour guide drove us trough a well studied itinerary and she also gave us plenty of info about history and local knowledge.
That day we also have been lucky because we were only in 4, that means that was almost a private tour and I really appreciated the possibility to change itinerary according to our feelings (nature >> history) and to do several photo stops.
What else could I say? Well Scotland in all his essence! incredibile views and possibility to spot wildlife too.
I definitely need to come back at some point

Words fail me to adequately describe the beauty of the sights we saw on this tour! Our driver, Ryan, was amazing. His knowledge of The Highlands is remarkable. All the little tidbits he was able to add whilst on the journey made us feel very well informed.
The bus was perfect in size. It held a maximum of 16 passengers. The stairs were manageable to get off and on the bus, particularly for seniors who may have had knee replacement surgery. The seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. All-in-all, I would highly recommend this style of bus for all tours. With such a small group, Ryan was able to remember all of our names. As well. The passengers got to know a little bit of their fellow-travellers and some lasting friendships were made. This type of smaller coach is much better, in my opinion, than the larger, 33-seat coaches. Smaller coach makes for a more intimate, personable tour.
Many thanks to Ryan for stopping at all the best spots for photos. You do a fantastic job.
If you read this, don’t hesitate to book a Timberbush Tours excursion in Inverness!
