    Such a fantastic tour. Lots of stories and facts thrown in between terrible jokes and appalling singing. Never expected I'd feel so welcome and comfortable so far from home. #hillswithgill #weregoingoverabridge

    I experienced so much more than I thought I would! We hiked, we explored, we learned history and we partied! Our whole group mutually agreed we got the best tour guide from the lot as well.

    Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to review us! We love feedback here at Haggis Adventures! Our Hogmanay Tour is available only over New Years so maybe you were on our 3-Day Skye High or 5-Day Highland Fling :) I am super thrilled you had a wonderful time exploring the amazing Highlands! You are welcome back any time :) - Kind regards - Tim
