Tour: Outer Hebrides, Isle of Skye Adventure 6 Day Tour
Last year I booked two of the five day tours with Rabbies - The Orkneys and the Mull, Iona, Staffa and Skye. Both were terrific, great mixture of scenery, history, folklore and introductions to the local way of life. Last week I went on the 6 Day Outer Hebrides Tour - if anything, it was even better! Everything you advertised was covered despite some inclement weather (Storm Hector!), fantastic scenery, neolithic sites, wonderful beaches and stories of the Croft Wars which are of a particular interest of mine. The Blackhouses of Lewis were very interesting, a way of life that has all but disappeared. The history aspect of Rabbies Tours have always been a bonus point for me - love it! The company on the bus were terrific, very warm and friendly, all nationalities. Special thanks must go to our driver/guide Chris - nothing was any trouble to him, historical aspect to his stories was first class, also enjoyed the folklore tales although Im not sure I believed them all!
