The Highlands and Loch Ness tour was an amazing day, from the amusing commentary by our driver Brian, the well appointed facilities of the bus (on board loo) and the beautiful countryside that we were shown. Do recommend budgeting a few extra pounds to do the Loch Ness cruise.

This tour was wonderful. Beautiful journey through the highlands. The train was lovely and everything id hoped for. Barbara was wonderful! She was incredibly knowledgeable about Harry Potter the tour was impeccable with times for everything. When she was speaking it was always something pertinent/interesting. The welcome email was absolutely adorable and made it extra special. Barbara was top notch and that tour should be experienced by all!
