      First time in Scotland in recent memory. Always wanted to see the Highlands and read so much about them that it was hard to believe that I was actually there. Visiting Loch Ness can be checked off of my bucket list. The fact that I am not of the typical... Show more

    FAQs

      • Is accommodation included in the tour price?

        Accommodation is not included in your tour price to give you maximum flexibility on where you would like to stay. However, for your convenience, a dorm bed is reserved for you in the best hostels available. At the time of booking, you can choose to either: 'Pay-as-you-go' and pay approximately £25 (per person per night) on arrival to the hostel or choose the 'pre-pay bundle' to pay for this in advance. Your bed is booked in a dorm which has typically 4-8 beds and a shared bathroom.

      • What should I budget for an average day?

        If you choose to pay-as-you-go, ideally you should budget £40-£50 per day including your hostel dorm accommodation and meals. There are always the fabulous Scottish pubs to tempt you in for a pint or two after a day on the road! A pint of beer costs around £4, a wee dram of malt whisky in Scotland would be about £4.

      • How much time do we spend off the bus each day?

        As much time as possible! The aim is to get you out and about to fully experience the country you’re in. You'll embark on walks, explore castles, recount local myths and legends and tell you about Scotland’s often turbulent history.

      • What type of accommodation will we be staying in?

        The accommodation available on this tour are high-quality youth hostels, mostly rated 3 and 4-stars. All of the hostels have great facilities, provide free linen, self-catering kitchens, security and laundry facilities, ensuring that you have a great night sleep ready for an adventure the next day!

      • What’s included in the tour price?

        The tour price includes transportation on the famous yellow Haggis bus and a legendary local guide to lead the way. Meals are not included which allows you to keep your options open and eat according to your budget. Although accommodation is not included, a bed is reserved for you at local hostels if you choose to purchase your accommodation through Haggis Adventures.
