What an amazing day filled with all sorts of experiences! Duffy - our guide for the day, was an absolute gem! Kind, fun, entertaining… of course the Jacobite train is a must do while in the Highlands but wow, the whole day was nothing short of fabulous! A good mix of fun, nature, history. Thank you Duffy!

It's a very long day but well worth the stamina expended. Certainly rain detracts from the experience, however, in my 6 days of touring in this region in early autumn I always found that rain stopped for some of the time and there were spells of nicer weather. All the tour guides seem to be well versed in the dramatic history of the region.

The guide we had was excellent, friendly. Entertaining and knowledgeable. The train service, journey and scenery especially the viaducts was good. The town we visited had plenty of shops and nice places to eat. The scenery was good too. We had a great day, visited so many different places snd we were given plenty of time to take photos
