    I liked this Tour, the landsacpe was magnificient and the ways we took were good. What I would have liked were some more Stopps for taking pictures from the bus. Michael Doughty was a careful and responsible Guide!

    We really enjoyed this holiday, the tour manager was excellent along with the various specialist guides used. The scenery was breath taking, the Scottish show is a must for everyone and the hspitality of the Scots is amazing. The only negatives were the accommodation in Thurso and the visit to the town in Fort William. The accommodation in Thurso was very poor and Fort William town is very scruffy.
