Helen was our driver and guide, and she spoke to us as friends, shared Scottish history, music and personal stories that will make this a most memorable trip. The weather was perfect, Blair Castle and surroundings were lovely and the guides at the house were happy to share stories of Victoria being filmed there. We stopped at all listed photo shots along with a few extras. Loo stops were provided.

This was a most enjoyable tour. Apart from getting out of Edinburgh, which was very crowded due to the Tattoo and Festival being run concurrently, the journey through the Scottish countryside was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Our guide, Niall, was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Scottish history, culture, geography and life style. He recounted his knowledge in a most entertaining style and kept us amused with his stories of early life in Scotland. The visit to Blair Castle was most enlightening and well worth the effort.

They cancelled the battlefield, we didn’t get to see a hairy cow and the places we visited were just ok. Our guide was good though, not a reflection on him.

Loch Lomond seen at Luss village. The weather was too windy for the boat ride. Aberfoyle across the way. Blair Castle, the grounds were impressive. There was an old church ruin that was charming. Horses, hairy coos and even a peacock. But my favorite stop was the last, the Hermitage. It's actually little more than a walking path alongside a whitewater stream. The nature there was mystical. Also thanks to out driver/guide Donald whose expertise and courtesy made this a truly grand day.
