    It was awesome, the scenery was gorgeous and Haggis Adventures was awesome in helping me plan an impromptu adventure! Mahri was a total blast! She knew the history, had the jokes & awesome music and made sure we got to have all the fun we could! It was so memorable and I wish it didn't have to end so fast. We didn't get the Haggis Yellow Bus but man we rocked the one we had!

    I went on the Heb Hopper tour with Mahri as my guide last September and it was my favorite Haggis tour to date (I've done a few by this point!). Mahri was so much fun and full of both knowledge and love for Scotland. She's the type of guide who will absolutely make you want to return to Scotland!

    Hi Amanda, Thank you very much for the great review and 5 star rating. I am delighted to hear that you had a brilliant tour last year and that Mahri's passion for Scotland really shone through. We hope to welcome you back for another tour in the future! Best Wishes, Brenna

    Haggis Adventures is well worth doing if you are looking for a small boutique tour service. I did the 5 day Hebredian Hopper. I went on my own and found it really easy to connect with the small group - there was only 10 of us. Duncan, our driver was really engaging and knowledgable about the area. He took us off the beaten track and gave us an individualised experience that you wouldnt get in a bigger tour group. It made the trip more like you were traveling with a group of friends you had known for a long time. Do yourself a favour and book this. My only critisism was that i didn't have the time to be able to do a longer trip!

    This 5-day tour will take you to some lesser-known parts of the Scottish Highlands and Outer Hebrides and will leave you checking out the local real estate offices. Beginning in the village of Dunkeld in Perthshire, with a picturesque cathedral by the river and plenty of shopping for locally-made pottery and handicrafts, this tour did not disappoint. Travel to Ullapool was chock-full of wonderful small adventures to Rogie Falls and Corrieshalloch Gorge. This was followed by a comfortable ferry-ride to the Isle of Lewis. Arriving in Stornoway, accommodations were clean and welcoming. The Isle of Lewis is a magical place full of beaches, standing stones, brochs, history and ancient cultures. Tour guide Duncan was second-to-none in his willingness to communicate, educate and entertain passengers in order to enhance their understanding and knowledge of Island life and heritage. The tour of Abhainn Dearg Distillery is a great one for whiskey enthusiasts as well as whiskey 'beginners.' I really felt like I was encouraging a young company as well as entrepreneurship in a remote location. The three-year-old whiskey is fantastic and a great gift for someone who appreciates good whiskey. Next year's passengers will have the ten-year-old whiskey to look forward to! The FirstFruits Tearoom in Tarbert, Isle of Harris has amazing coffee and sweets and the friendliest staff on the planet. There was a great arts and crafts show in the community hall behind the FirstFruits café where I indulged in the shopping of Harris Tweed and spoke with local artists/craftspeople. The Isle of Skye was majestic. It was even better than the photos. This is a place where you have to get out in the wilderness put your hiking boots on (good runners will do) and get your heartrate up. Again, Duncan was a fantastic guide. He took us to the Old Man of Storr before the 'tourists' arrived, explained the mythology of the landscape and took everyone on an adventure. In Lochness, the accommodation at Morag's Lodge was great. Clean and comfortable, great bar, good music and lively atmosphere. Home cooked meals are a bargain and taste great. Toga party is a must (swimming is optional!). The last day of the tour takes you to Glencoe (the weeping glen) - (decent footwear recommended!)- Stirling and we had a great opportunity to photograph Highland Coos! Tour guide Duncan was an informative and honest host. He made the tour memorable and educative. He is fun and energetic but also professional and sincere. Duncan MacLean is a great ambassador for Scotland, truly patriotic and an exemplary representative of the tourism industry in Scotland. I recommend this trip to first-time visitors to Scotland as well as avid visitors who have not yet explored the Western Highlands and Islands. Excellent value for your money.

    Hi Tracy, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your Hebridean Hopper tour. I am so glad that you had a brilliant time and that Duncan made sure you all made the most of the 5 days with all the sights he showed you as well as the small walks he took you on to experience the stunning Scottish landscape. It is great to hear that Duncan's passion for Scotland really shone through. It certainly sounds like you have made many memories! Best Wishes, Brenna
