Loved this trip. Really appreciated that Highland Experience still ran the trip even though the numbers were below the normal minimum. That meant a bit more flexibility as to timing as well. The driver was good fun and very informative and accommodating. Very much enjoyed the Highlands and loved Orkney. The Neolithic sites are wonderful but also loved the town of Kirkwall itself and just wandering the streets. As always, one could always do with more time, but we had plenty of time at each place to appreciate it. I recommend this tour. As a solo traveller, it would have been nice to be in the same B&B as other participants but that was probably because I booked not long before the trip started.
It was a nice bus tour around the Highlands and to the Orkney Islands. There were three different accommodations in four nights. Nice B&B. We were 17 people at most but the first day we were only two. The days were well used and we stayed in many different places every day. The driver was also a guide and spoke (of course) in Scottish dialect. He was very accommodating and friendly. Most entrance fees were added. The group did not live in the same place but in 3-5 different places and it probably depended on what you paid for. Not all accommodation was centrally located. The only thing you can complain about is the communication and information mainly before but also during the trip.
