    My husband and I celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary in Scotland and are so glad we hired Timberbush for our day trip to The Isle of Skye. We really enjoyed touring Eilean Donan Castle, the beautiful scenery, and our fantastic driver/tour guide Andy S. It was a full day and we highly recommend it. Next time we will take a 2 day tour!

    The visit to Skye across the new bridge was a great experience however, the whole day was made special by our guide Charlotte who has incredible knowledge of the entire geography. We were given lots of breaks but still coverage a lot of ground including Eileen Donan, Portree, Uig and Trotternish and The Storr.
    An excellent day out and we look forward to repeating it soon!

    Our tour bus guide and driver Brian was amazing and regaled us with his sense of humor, energy, tales from the highlands, and his meticulously planned music to complement the areas we visited.
    Great tour.

    The view was magnificent, our driver was knowledgeable and very friendly. We stopped at some great restaurants along the way. The weather was sunny yet freezing, overall it was a perfect trip!

    It is a compact tour and you get to see the Caledonian Castle, the mouth of the river Ness, the Loch Ness, and a cruise by of the Urquhart castle. Although it is disappointing that the monster does not bother to greet visitors.

    The docks are just off A82 and about a 10 minute drive from the center of Inverness. I had a car rental and there was plenty of parking. Although I am not sure if public transportation is available to the dock.

    There is a gift shop and cafe at the dock and they have some good items for purchase.

    The staff were pretty friendly and gave a lot of information about the lake and the estates along the lake. Try to sit at the front of the boat to get dramatic views of the horizon as the boat enters the lake from the canal. This was the best part of the cruise.

    You have to have a special ticket to visit the castle, else you stay on the boat as visitors to the castle are dropped off. There is a small bar with snacks on the boat along with bathroom facilities.

    This tour is sufficient for an introduction to Loch Ness.

    Yes, it was a long day, but the trip from Inverness to Isle of Skye was very enjoyable and comfortable. Having only six of us in a large van was much to our liking. Our tour was hosted and guided by Drew who was knowledgeable and personable.. He did all he could to make sure we were comfortable. We made all the stops as was advertised - that met our sightseeing goal. And on Drew's recommendation, we ate at the hotel restaurant in Portree finding it to be one of the best meals we had while in Scotland

    As it is said the highest comment you can say for a individual is that they "Ride for the Brand", With all of our tours while on vacation our guide Stuart "Rides for Scotland". He stands heads and shoulders of over all other of our quides while we were in Scotland, England and then on to Iceland. From his introduction when he picked us up, bypassing sites we had seen on earlier tours to enjoy other sites of Scotland, enjoying a short visit at Singleton ,the touching grand tour of the Culladen battlefield, and finaly tales of "Outlander'.

    We ventured out on this tour with Andy S. on Tuesday, Oct 11, 2022. I could not have been more delighted by our guide and our day. There is not a chance that we would have possibly covered as much ground and seen all that we saw without their help. Timberbush Tours operates out of a very comfortable vehicle that plays traditional music to set the ambiance.

    I was grateful that we had already purchased a membership through Historic Scotland so some of our tickets were included. The cruise was lovely and the castle was likely not one I’d find on my own googling.

    We would love to return to do their Isle of Skye tour! Thank you so much Andy for an incredible day of memories.

    Excellent tour! George was booked with another group, so we had Roger. He was an amazing tour guide. We ended up booking with Roger for a second day tour. Cannot say enough good things about George and Roger. George answered all my concerns and was willing to fit in certain distilleries in. We even got to spend time with hairy coos. Highly recommend booking with George!

    Loved the tour- Loved Alana and her chill vibe even more. She made it perfect and we were able to see so much. So knowledgeable and kind.

    I highly recommend this tour for any Outlander fans, but also for anyone who wants to learn about the storied history of the Scottish Highlands. I personally have not seen Outlander, but my fiancé is a massive fan which is why we initially booked this tour. However, I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Inverness. Our tour guide George was an amazing storyteller, highly knowledgable, and had a great sense of humor. We spent the perfect amount of time at each of locations and heard the stories and myths only a genuine Highlander would know. I would definitely recommend booking this tour with George it was a 10/10 experience and made Inverness one of our favorite and most memorable stops in Scotland.

    My favourite part was Ian the tour guide and driver.
    He had a wide range of history regarding all the places we toured.

    He was a very patient man. He made us understand The Rochness monster which i heard about before but did not know what happened and the story of Mary and Anges MacLoud was brilliant.

    All in all i enjoyed the whole tour.

    Alana, the guide took us to wonderful places, gave a good review of historical/explanations, and about the flora and fauna of the area, points related to the land and the early Scots, and was generally very pleasant to travel with. I appreciated the information regarding the various places the 'Outlander' series used as part of the story and filming sites in this area of Scotland. I appreciated that Alana drove the people disinterested in the whisky tour to a beautiful waterfall instead.

    I had an amazing tour with Euan's company. Our driver was Billy who was fun, funny, chatty and so informative. We had a couple of tight timelines but Billy made sure we got in to every spot we wanted to get into.

    The ONLY downside to this was that our itinerary came late and I got a bit nervous. However, because it came in a little late, we were able to request a last minute change. Euan was extremely accommodating. It was fantastic to walk into a place, have our tasting scheduled. Billy did a great job guiding us through the different distilleries, highlighting different whisky.

    The cost is very reasonable given the expense of renting a car and the time to drive between distilleries. The roads are a bit overwhelming. I will say, having a competent driver was fantastic. The roads can be a bit treacherous. Billy knew where he was going and often shared little trivia facts during the drive. Once you calculate the cost of a car, the fuel, the accommodations, the tastings, the actual cost is very nominal. They cover three tastings per days and anything more is out of pocket. It was unclear at first that Macallan was not included but I understand why. It is very expensive and honestly, I would skip it. There are so many other charming and warm places to visit. WW makes sure to highlight those places.

    They drop you off for lunch (at your own expense) and both days were delicious! Obviously the locations change depending on your specific tour. The first day, we ate lunch in a beautiful courtyard filled with flowers. The food was superb. I didn't have to scramble to search a menu. It was so relaxing to get dropped off, have a great meal and relax.

    When I think of everything we were able to experience, I was thrilled with the tour. We were able to go to a final independent distiller who was also able to ship whisky home. We just got back last Tuesday (as in 3 days ago) and our whisky is already here! 10/10 I would recommend this tour.

    I have recommended this tour to several friends and family members.
