During our recent 12 day British Isles cruise, my husband and I booked a private and custom itinerary with David Laidlaw of Scenic Routes to tour the beautiful Scottish Highlands while in port at Invergordon / Inverness. Our time with David was definitely one of the ultimate highlights of our vacation! David is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and offers historical and current information along the way – not to mention amazing experiences that are off the typical beaten path of the tour buses. We truly felt as though we were on a fabulous tour of the area with a friend or family member – no obtrusiveness – just a really friendly and fun time – all while in the lap of luxury – an immaculate Mercedez Benz vehicle complete with personal touches such as home-made shortbread, Scottish Tablet (so addictive!) and local whiskey (YUM!) He felt personally responsible for making sure we got to check off all the things we were hoping to do and see – and so much more (including a stop to feed and pet the hairy coos!) In the end, our tour with David turned out to be a little pricier than the traditional group tours, but if we had to do it all over again we wouldn’t have done it any other way – and if we could have cloned him, we would have taken a tour with him in every port of call! A combination of back roads highlights and breathtaking vistas that only a local can provide in a personalized, luxurious and stress free setting! Could go on and on about the details of the day, but the bottom line is: we would highly recommend spending your time in the Scottish Highlands with David – seriously well done!!!
