It was very well organised. The tour manager gave us a tiny square with times and arrangements each day. Food was good in and out hotels. Bagpipes overloud for an indoor venue, dances enjoyable. Beds comfy. Driver flexible even when one couple got timing return wrong. Lots of goodwill. Queries wee answered in great detail the folowing day as necessary, very helpful. Guide remained positive even though some things went wrong from time to time. Others on trip were positive and not forever moaning. We even had good weather!
The tour itself was very good but let down by some of the hotels which were not really up to standard. 2 had no lift though we were on the 2nd or 3rd floor and 1 had such a poor lift it told us on arrival it was broken and we carried cases upstairs only to find out afterwards it was not broken !
It was a good holiday: well chosen, good weather, good company.
overall it was very good just the odd thing
one or two of the hotels were definitely economy class in terms of room size and access to rooms.
More coach travel than expected but we still enjoyed the tour.
Excellent Tour Manager sorted out problems as they arose. Hotel in Oban was not well suited to the tour itinerary in terms of location or room quality
Very enjoyable trip, could have done with more free time and more time to transfer from one form of transport to another
