Amazing for those who don’t have much time in Scotland
Laura_M
, Jan 2022
Ideal for those who want to see Skye but don’t have much time. We couldn’t fit a stay in Skye on our trip but managed to find this tour and it was a great way to get a taste of the island as well as some other sites by Loch Ness and Eilean Donan. Our tour guide Sinclaire was very knowledgeable and knew all the great photo spots. The weather was not the worst or best (some rain and poor visibility) but despite this everything was still beautiful, I’d highly recommend this trip and amazing value for money for a 11-12 hour trip.

Hi Laura, This tour is a really great way to see the Isle of Skye in a day! We're so glad you were able to make the most of your time on our fantastic tour. It's good to hear you had a great time with Sinclair and that he took you to all the perfect photo spots. The weather can be quite unpredictable in Scotland, so I'm glad to hear it wasn't too rainy on the day. We hope to see you on tour with us again soon!

EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING! I enjoyed the trip very much and this experience will be memorable for ever! I'm impressed of the nature of the Scotland! I have never seen this kind of beauty again! Also, the company and the stories that the guide was telling us made the whole experience even more unique! I would surely recommend this trip to other friends of mine!

Our Driver-guide Ray was just absolutely brilliant! He was so passionate with what he does that with every story he tells makes you feel like you are going back in time. Great storytelling accompanied by wonderful scottish folk music, perfectly placed in between each story. We enjoyed being with him so much that we had to book the same tour (Isle of Skye tour) again for the next day. We highly recommend it!

Thank you very much for such a glowing review! We are so glad you had a great time with Ray. I will be sure to pass along your comments to him - I know he will love to see this. Also, thank you so much for going on a SECOND tour the following day! This means so much to us. Thank you for choosing Timberbush Tours (twice!). Happy holidays and all the best in 2022!

Great way to see Isle of Skye
Sarah_E
, Dec 2021
Be cautious if you get car sick (thin, curvy roads and a long day on the bus) but other than that it was a great way to see Isle of Skye! Ray, our driver, was fantastic. Lots of facts and information but not overly chatty to fill the quiet. Many quick stops for photos with longer stops at places to hike or see more of a castle or view. Highly recommend for teens and up. Young children would be restless.

An amazing voyage to Skye

Ray, our guide, was fantastic, a born storyteller and really made the experience. The landscape speaks for itself though, I went in winter but a fairly clear day and every moment was magical. Highly recommend this!

Hello, Kate: Thank you for taking the time to write us a review - we really appreciate it! We are so glad you enjoyed your Skye tour from Inverness with Ray.

The best tour you could hope for
Aviroop_C
, Dec 2021
The tour was great. Perfectly paced. Not rushed at all. But you never get the feeling you are wasting too much time at a spot either. The scenery was mind blowing. But without a doubt, the best thing about the tour was our guide Ray. A proud Scott, his knowledge of the country and the history of the area is the best I have seen to date, and I have taken many tours in my life. The whole tour, it felt like you were hearing a podcast and you could almost visualise whatever the guide was saying about the history of the place. Definitely recommended!!

Thank you for choosing Timberbush Tours. Happy holidays and we wish you a safe and healthy 2022!
