Late choice break with friend Very satisfied with whole experience and excellent value for the price we paid. As 2 ladies we requested single rooms and were allocated a twin room each. Very well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Extra touches with bowl of fruit, small bottle of wine tea/coffee making facilities all added to the welcoming feel. Meals were...

Disappointing Trip, Despite stating in their booking confirmation that a final invoice would be sent 6 weeks prior to the start date, & full payment must be made 5 weeks before the start date, when I did not receive the final invoice I rang to make payment & was told that they had now altered the payment schedule. I then...

Our coach arrived at the hotel to be greeted by the manager and some of the staff in kilts etc. Nice touch! Our room in the hotel was perfectly acceptable, clean sheets, towels and bathroom. The staff are very good although a couple of items were left off our complimentary tea tray on the last day but one. Generally we...

This was our first coach tour holiday and so approached it with some trepidation with the relatively low cost of the 5 day holiday (an absolute steal as an introduction to this part of Scotland). As this was also our first trip to Scotland we were not too sure about the standard of food and accommodation especially with the price...

We have just returned from a 5 day holiday with Highland Heritage, staying at the Ben Doran Hotel, and visiting the Highlands. The hotel itself is old fashioned and very basic. There are no phones in the rooms, the bar is closed more often than open, and the meals are basic, unimaginative, and served at an uncomfortable break neck speed....

Having just returned from our usual Autumn visit to Scotland, but this time with Highland Heritage tours, what a great time we have had. Journey north as usual is long but plenty of stops, this time at places we hadn't stopped at before, so that was a pleasant change. The Tebay stop was very pleasant indeed. I like the journey...
