Fantastic tour with a really interesting commentary by the tour guide, Ray. Good stops and enough time at Dunrobin Castle to include a falconry display which was excellent. Fascinating stops and wonderful music on the bus. Highly recommend this tour.

Brilliant day trip from Inverness

A brilliant day out seeing some unforgettable things: Dunrobin Castle, the cliffs at John O'Groats, John O'Groats's iconic sign and many more. The tour guide, Ray, was excellent. He was very informative, but also did not assume a lot of prior knowledge (which helped me out!). A fantastic and very worthwhile day trip.

It was wonderful experience! The guides were super friendly for the whole journey even thought it was almost 12 hours trip. The scenery was literally breathtaking when we reached the northeast point of mainland. Additionally, I would like to mention about their after-seevice. The operator kindly found my wallet which i dropped in the van. I am so grateful for their amazing service. You never regret to choose this tour.

Far North trip

A fantastic day trip to the Far North of Scotland. Dunrobin castle itself was worth the early start, but the trip was full of amazing views of the east coast, castles and of course John O'Groats. Our guides Chris and Ray were fabulous, making extra surprising stops on the way and accommodating all my additional requests. Definitely worth going!
