Subject: A Life-Affirming Journey Through The Highlands One week later, I want to offer my immense gratitude to Rabbies for five of the most magical days in the Highlands. From mind-boggling scenery, spellbinding storytelling and bus sing-a-longs (including a whisky drinking song and a nursery rhyme Ill never get out of my head), to Highland cows in the road, countless sheep and eight vivid rainbow sightings, it truly was like living in a dream.
Our tour guide (and possible real-life faerie) Heather over-delivered on every expectation short of a unicorn sighting, and I couldnt say enough good things about her. Right off the bat, her excellent sense of humor set the tone for our group, and I knew we were in for a fun five days. Not only did she embody the warmth and friendliness that the Scots are known for, but she is a born storyteller and regaled us with tales of Scottish Highlands folklore. A hush would fall over the bus whenever she started telling a story, and wed all end up clapping enthusiastically at the end. I couldve listened to her talk forever.
Heather regularly impressed us with her in-depth knowledge of Scottish history, folklore and environmental issues, all while skillfully navigating the Highlands roads. You could tell that she injected some personal touches, too, like a seemingly impromptu whisky tasting and helping us locate the perfect place for a group photo (including perfectly executing a jumping photo!). Ill be telling all of my friends and family to take a Rabbies tour whenever theyre in the UK or Ireland from now on.
The Highlands make you forget about your daily life unlike any place Ive ever been. I thought Id be able to check off Scotland after this trip between all that we were able to see in five days, but in fact its had the complete opposite effect. Now, Im more drawn than ever to this incredible country full of kind, warm people. Its only a matter of time before I get myself back there. Thank you so much for five unforgettable days!
