Visited Clava Cairns, Cawdor Castle, Culloden battlefield, Loch Ness and Beauly Priory. Ideal for Outlander fans. Excellent, friendly, outgoing tour guide who answered all our questions. Really good value and packed in a lot in one day although we didn't feel rushed.

I’m glad you enjoyed it. Some of the front seats are a bit close together. Sorry about that. Thanks for giving us feedback. You had Elizabeth as your guide and she does have a great sense of humour.

As this was our first trip to the British Isles, we found Lottie most informative & enjoyed our stops, we would definitely recommend the Thistle Group
