I was just standing in my living room looking at pictures of my Hairy Coo memories passing by. A decade later, it’s still one of our fondest of memories. Such a gem of an experience. A lifetime must!!!!

9-11 October 2020. We had the most remarkable 3-Day tour in Inverness, Highlands and Isle of Skye with THE HAIRY COO TOURS. Not only everything was perfect, but we felt, in every instance, that our guide/Driver - RYAN, truly cared about us. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by RYAN and it was a friendly atmosphere, hence we had a fantastic start! Ryan has such a warm personality and highly motivated guide. I truly enjoyed the scenery and it was nice to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. All respect for Ryan who does a great job as a driver/guide. He is such a GREAT DRIVER I must say; I never felt sick in all the travels, it was a smooth drive indeed. Many thanks again to the team and I recommend THE HAIRY COO TOURS to everyone!

Had the pleasure of spending the time with Ryan on the highlands and Loch Ness tour. For such a long journey there was never a dull moment and Ryan was very educational and entertaining the whole trip. Highly recommend the Whiskey icecream too, even if you’re not a whiskey fan. Happy to say I’ve been on a boat ride on Loch Ness now, even if I didn’t see ol Nessie myself :)

Absolutely worth it! Brain was simply amazing today. First time in Scotland and it was our very first trip out on our first day and Brian made us have an incredible start to our Scottish vacation! It wasn’t just his knowledge about Scottish history, it was his enthusiasm and positive drive in his delivery and engagement to us and the rest of the tour group. He made sure he looked after his customers well and took the extra effort in speaking to us individually to ensure we was having a good time and talking about his personal experiences. It was mine and my misses first time on holiday after nearly being together for a year but due to COVID-19, going abroad was getting limited. Therefore we chosen Scotland as a last resort as we have never been before and because of this tour we was not disappointed! Thanks again to the Hairy Coo and Brian!

We had a great day exploring the Scottish highlands and learning so much about Scottish history in a really fun and informative way from our tour guide Brian. Brian added extra stops along the way and there were some amazing photos opportunities; he also recommended food and drinks places and was just really helpful and accommodating from start to finish. Really really recommend this trip :-)
