Very nice tour... only you should call it something else, because there were no castles to visit... only one castle with expensive admission for 1 hour visit time. Scenery is great and you get a good overview of the Highlands. Time for lunch in Oban too short - should be 1/2 hour longer, especially as the Fishhouse restaurant is superb. The driver/guide was very relaxed and funny. His information was both informative and entertaining.

Beautiful experience, excellent and very nice guide Louise took us far and wide in the Highlanders. He told a great deal about Scotland of the past and its legends. We recommend to everyone. On the contrary: to be repeated.

Driver was amazing, So much information given. such a great day. but please tip your driver, they are so worth it.
