Subject: The guide made this the best tour ever!
I thought that the scenery was going to be the highlight of this trip, but it was evident from the start that the views would only come second. The best part of this tour was the guide Iains knowledge about Scottish history and culture, and the humouristic commentary he made throuhout the way. He was not shy in expressing his opinions about politics either, which was refreshing. It was also great just to listen to the Scottish accent all day, which I happen to love :)

Of course, the scenery was also absolutely stunning! I had been to Glencoe on a roadtrip before, but I have to say that with a knowledgeable guide the experience was so much deeper that just going by yourself. Glencoe is breathtakingly beautiful and the highlight of this tour.

There were about 10 stops on the way, some only 10 minutes to take photos of castles and such, a couple of 30 minute breaks (villages of Luss Inverary, Glencoe). The lunch break in Oban lasted 1,5 hours, just enough to have the best mussels fish and chips ever, have a taste of whisky at Oban distillery and grab a delicious ice cream to eat in the bus. What I loved about this tour was that the scenery varied quite a lot and the stops were all different from each other: some were besides castles, some in valleys, some in villages, some beside a loch.

I have to say that this tour changed my view about guided tours. In the future, I will definitely select tours with small buses and not big ones, and take more tours in general!
