Took the tour of the glen, highlands and Loch Ness. I was skeptically as I typically shy away from tours but this was different. It was small, there were many stops, and minimal cheesiness. Our guide Neill was enjoyable and talked about things I cared...More

Iain was a fantastic guide! Full of stories and tidbits of Scottish history. His impersonation of Sean Connery and Liam Neeson were spot on! Hilarious! The tour allowed for enough time at each site, without feeling rushed, while at the same time covering a lot...More
