Hi friends. My wife and I are just weeks away from our early June trip to Edinburgh and then on to London. After much thought for our single "day trip" from Edinburgh, we've decided to take a small bus tour. We know that we could drive, and I am not afraid of that, but I AM afraid of going to a wonderful place and not knowing its wonderful history. So, a tour it is.
We want small bus and everybody here raves about the Rabbies tours. I am inclined to take your recommendations on that, but I am open to other companies if we can find a tour that fits our needs.
Neither of us care about Loch Ness. We're biologists and its just another Lake to us. I like everything on the Glencoe/Loch Ness Rabbies tour except for the Loch ness part, which is a huge time drain for me.
My wife wants to see:
1) Scotland wooded areas
2) Glens/"mountains" (we realize they aren't really mountains, perhaps "big hills" is the better term"
3) Ocean cliffs
I like history and natural areas too.
In picking from tours, I'm not really sure what areas in Scotland would offer all three of those on a single day trip. So, maybe someone can stop as right here and say "it isn't likely going to happen".
All of the Rabbies tours seem to get us what we want...except the ocean cliffs. Any ideas, or other companies?
Finally, would I be foolish to not book an early June tour in advance or can I book it when we get there and still find spots?
