Subject: My most amazing day in Scotland so far As I did and reviewed the fantastic Isle of Skye day tour two days ago, I had to register another account to be able to review this UNBELIEVABLY amazing tour. I picked this tour because I had never heard about these places before, so I had thought that these are less known, less tourist-invaded places. Also googled it, and the scenery was breathtaking. Also, Helen told me on the Skye trip that this trip would be HUGE.
On Friday I had an amazing day on Skye with Rabbies and this tour on Sunday was equally fantastic, exceeded all my expectations. Just like on Skye, we had a lucky day with no rain, sunshine and rare horizons at every viewpoint. I can not choose between these two trips as they both were equally great, but definitely the Torridon, Applecross was my most amazing day in Scotland so far.
Our driver guide Emily and the group made the whole day even bigger and better. Emilys passion for Scotlands history, geology, geography, nature, etc.is fascinating and so moving. Her enthusiasm for Scottish nature and wildlife is huge! I love about Rabbies (amongst other things) that their guides are intellectual people. They are not those type of tour guides you can meet unfortunately at so many companies, who just learnt by heart some wikipedia articles and thats all. The tour guides at Rabbies are different in many ways, including they know the whole context of every cultural, historical, geographical information, so you can ask whatever you want from them, they can answer it.
The tour crosses the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen in Scotland: beautiful sea lochs and fresh water lochs, huge and strong mountains, green forests, blue rivers. We had a very clear day so we could not only see Skye, but the Outer Hebrides. Also, we saw a lot of things in the nature that of course, no tour can guarantee, but the whole journey was like a Highland Safari, crossing beautiful scenery, visiting a beautiful Scots Pine forest, seeing beautiful highland animals. We had a great lunch together at a pub in Applecross, talked through the day, enjoyed the beauty that this less-populated, less known area can provide.
At the end of the day we had a wee bit more than an hour to spend at the beautiful Eilean Donan Castle (you can either visit it or take a walk around the loch shore), then headed back to Inverness.
I recommend from the bottom of my heart to everyone who loves Scotland to take this tour. If you already had visited Skye and you had loved it or if you could not book a Skye tour, choose this tour (it1s even more breathtaking than Skye). You wont be disappointed! Posted 2017-07-10 00:00:00
