Awesome guide

Alice is an amazing guide who enthusiastically shared loads of Scottish historical facts and stories. It felt like this tour should be double the price as it is truely a full day tour with a comprehensive discovery of the area. One of the best guided tours I have been on, thank you Alice.

Stunning views at Dunnottar Castle - a must see!

Alice was our tour guide and went out of her way to make sure we had a good time. She was very informative regarding the sites we were seeing and outlined the stops we would be making - asking our input in the process along the way. She even stopped for us to take some pictures of Highland Cows, a highlight of our trip! Dunnottar Castle is a must see, but beware that you will go up and down and back down and up about 500 steps during your tour - worth it. We had stunning pictures and even saw dolphins in the North Sea. We saw salmon jumping out of the water on their trip upstream at the Falls of Feugh. We drove by Balmoral Castle and stopped for lunch near there. Alice brought us on a short hike in the Muir of Dinnet National Reserve to a bowl shaped alcove that was really cool. Alice kept us informed, entertained and made frequent stops to keep the day moving with hikes, breaks and tours.

Glad I took this tour, guide Doug was marvelous and we covered huge swathes of the countryside in one day with several stops. Value for money in my opinion and I enjoyed it so much I booked another different tour with Doug for the next day. Fully recommend.

Wonderful tour. Guide was very knowledgeable about a lot of things Scotland. Although it was a long day, and the stairs at Dunnotter & small hill at the stones were physically challenging, I would recommend this trip for the 'strong of leg' folks

Interesting and beautiful tour to Dunnottar Castle and Deeside. An extra experience was to see queen Elisabeth, prince William, Charles and Camilla pass us in their cars, outside Balmoral Castle!
