“Drop at the top cycle hire”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We hired two bikes from Highland Safaris today and chose the drop at the top route near to Glassie. The bikes were fab, the drive up to the top was beautiful and the guide was excellent. We were left with a map and instructions to find our way down and had a great ride around Glassie and Dull Forest, a little muddy in places but this is Scotland!! The views were magnificent, made the steep climb up between the Glassie route and the Dull route very worth it! We finished off with a lovely cake in the cafe, watching the red deer herd from the window. Would definitely go back again.

“Great experience”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Went on the jeep safari as an excursion included in our Lochs and Glens holiday. What a great unexpected experience - way up into the mountains. The weather wasn't the best which meant the sighting of the red deer didn't happen. Our guide Steve managed to spot a red squirrel, a red grouse and some hares for our party.Steve was very knowledgeable and informative. He positively encouraged us to ask questions and obviously loved his job. This is a very well organised company - safety and comfort were taken seriously. It's suitable for families and people of all ages. I would highly recommend this trip and would return another time. Thanks Steve for a great time.

“Excellent Afternoon”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Can’t praise this place highly enough it was really fantastic. We went on the 4 hour Land Rover Safari which included a great picnic lunch in the cosy bothy with homemade soup filled rolls tea/coffee and homemade cake all of which were very tasty. Our ranger / driver for the afternoon was Tommy. He was excellent, a good driver, very knowledgeable about the surrounding area including local wildlife etc. There were six of us in the car and we were all made to feel welcome and were all included in the conversation.
After lunch we went on a walk where again we were treated to interesting facts about the vegetation / berries etc. also the scenery (which was amazing) was also explained with lochs and mountains being pointed out.
All in all a great 4 hours .

“wedding 17th august 2013”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had our wedding day booked with Highland Safaris on the above date at the Hilltop Marquee location on Drummond Hill, we had 27 adults and 16 children and we cannot rate highly enough of the service provided by the team at Highland Safaris, the service was exceptional from our initial contact to our final day of celebrations! Very organised and professional. We had booked the highland warrior and birds of prey through Highland Safaris as part of our celebrations and we can thoroughly recommend anyone thinking about having an unusual outdoor wedding as a being great choice. The scenery was beautiful and we had eight land rovers booked for our guests which was also part of the fun on our day. We can also highly recommend the tablet and shortbread by Kenmore bakery (provided by Highland Safaris) which was enjoyed by all on our special day. Thanks again to the team at Highland Safaris.
