Best part of my vacation!!
Shannon_B
, May 2022
I went on quite a few different tours throughout my vacation to Scotland, and I have to say out of all of them, this one was the absolute best, mainly because of our wonderfully crazy and fun driver/ tour guide Stephen. Thanks to the Hairy Coo, my three day trip to the Isle of Skye was amazing. And not just because of all of the wonderful places we stopped, planned and surprises. But because of Stephen’s retelling of the Highlands, Scotland and Scottish clans history while driving through was very entertaining and engaging. Getting to know a bit more about the history of Glen Coe, and the stories behind landmarks throughout the trip made seeing them in person more impressive and memorable. His recommendations and knowledge of the best restaurants and places to eat and see were invaluable and made the trip that much more enjoyable. The surprise/ bonus stops to see Hamish and Honey were very welcomed and enjoyable. And fortunately, TSA never asked the livestock question when flying home. I highly recommend booking a tour with the Hairy Coo while visiting Scotland.

Unforgettable Trip

Wow! Absolute treasure of a trip. Everything went smoothly with the tour, from start to finish delivered what was promised. The sites were nicely planned and there was always enough time for lunch. From a tour point of view it was perfect. But what made it special and unforgettable was not only our tour guide, Marty, but the other people on the tour. Best trip I’ve been on!!

Had amazing time ! Tour guide John was really nice and funny. Also very experience and helpful during the trip. Had dropped us off somewhere else as we didn’t want to go Distillery (Whiskey testing) was very kind of him. Trip went very smoothly but I do wish some location we could stay abit longer for photos. But I guess was difficult because of the time and places we had to go. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody. Thank u again for the amazing time !

Solo Scotland Score!

I was meant to travel with another company who cancelled and managed to get on this tour as an alternative. It certainly did not disappoint! Brian was fantastic, with a great sense of humour and adventure. A smaller group/bus meant that we could visit sites not usually included where time allowed (added bonus: I had the front seat so views were always spectacular). Perfect mix of history, hiking, and sightseeing. Definitely wear shoes you don't mind walking in and getting muddy, Scotland weather is constantly wet. Value for money is excellent, I chose the accommodation not-included option to find my own budget accommodation (I'm a solo backpacker), but there is plenty of variety and choice in Inverness to suit budget. It was also nice to have a base for two nights and not be dragging luggage everywhere. Day 1 has to be my highlight, we struck gold with the weather and the views on the drive into the Highlands are spectacular, snow capped mountains, and a tick off the bucket list - Loch Ness (still no sign of Nessie)

Greatest tour experience. I'd repeat this endless times.

Thanks to Viator support and Hairy Coo's assistance I was able to attend for only 2 days (just because I wanted to go norther but I'd wished to stay more). The experience was like no other I ever had. The views were amazing, Stephen's stories, dark humor and musical choices were spot on. I felt totally immersed and simple words cannot describe how much I loved it. Thanks Stephen for showing us your hiking/photographic spots and for the gruesome Scottish reports, they contributed to the whole mystic atmosphere I was expecting to get from Scotland. If I get the chance to do this again, I'll definitely repeat the experience. Thank you immensely!!

Rose was our driver & guide. She was fantastic, knowledgeable, and a great story teller. The landscape is breathtaking and the towns we stopped at were very charming. I highly recommend taking this trip.

There was a group of us that did this tour together in March 2020. Brian Smith was our guide and he was the life of the party and such a great sport. He loved to joke and play along w/ the shenanigans. He tried his best to ensure everyone was enjoying the tour. We appreciate all his efforts and kindness. Highly recommend Brian as your guide. I love Scotland!

One of the most memorable and fun tours ever!! Could not recommend more and our guide John is a beast and clearly passionate about his country. We travelled with another bus also with Michael as a driver who is also super lovely. Didn't want to leave. Three days of Scotland tour including Isle of Man was magical.
