Last year, 2 of our team members from our Edinburgh office, Nicky and George were kindly hosted by Rabbie’s on the Loch Ness tour, here is some feedback from their experience of the day:
“In May 2018, we had the pleasure of joining the LOCH NESS, GLENCOE & THE HIGHLANDS tour which lasts 10 hours. We gathered at the pre-arranged meeting point; where everything was so well organized, there wasn’t a moment of confusion for us.
The tour started at 8:00am, with our driver Nick showing us the route we would follow on the map. Throughout the tour we had several photo stops at amazing spots with breath-taking landscapes and we even encountered the famous Highlands cow!!
During the tour, Nick entertained us with fun facts about Scotland and Scottish people while he was narrating great Scottish stories and legends of the country which were really captivating!
We were really amazed by the beauty of Fort Augustus, where – as it was really windy that day -we decided not to go on the Loch Ness cruise but to walk around and do some souvenir shopping.
We genuinely enjoyed this tour and we definitely recommend it to everyone!”
