    A fantastic introduction to the highlands of Scotland. Planned and executed really well with the chance to see and experience so much, but also time to explore some areas in more depth. See many of the Scottish things I was hoping for: Mountains, Lochs, Waterfalls, Hairy Cows, Heather, and much more. Our driver/guide (Tommy) was informative, entertaining and diligent making sure that everyone was looked after. Would not hesitate to recommend
