My friends and I had a lot of fun aboard the Hairy Coo Bus! Our tour guide, John, was very knowledgable and punctuated the ride with humorous, vivid, and detailed anecdotes about Scottish history and the sites we were seeing from the bus window. In between the storytelling, he played a custom playlist of Scottish artists, and sometimes included fun facts about the songs and artists we were hearing. The bus was not crowded which made it so that everyone was able to have a window seat and really enjoy the incredible scenery. After passing the massive Kelpie statues and the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, we made our first stop at Deanston Distillery, which is in a pretty riverside location. On the tour, they showed us their massive mash tun, one of the only uncovered ones still in operation, where you could see giant agitators circulating the mash. We learned about the history of the distillery building, which was once a cotton mill, and more recently served as the setting for the film The Angel's Share. For 10, we got to taste two drams of whisky before getting back on the bus and driving to the Highlands. John warned us that we were about to cross the invisible line into the Highlands, but we had no idea that the scenery would change dramatically almost instantly. Suddenly there were snow-capped peaks and dramatic green valleys. We stopped to take pictures at Glen Coe, which is breathtakingly beautiful and was also extremely windy. We drove through Fort William, with great views of Ben Nevis, and past a series of majestic lochs, finally arriving at Fort Augustus, the quaint town at the base of Loch Ness. For 13, we were able to purchase tickets to cruise Loch Ness. The hour-long journey was aboard a boat with a small cafe counter where you could purchase snacks, tea, and beer. There was a roof deck with beautiful views of the loch and we saw mountain goats and deer walking on the steep hillside. Back inside on the lower level of the boat, one of the guides explained the sonar screens, where you can see the contours of the loch floor, more than 600 feet below. After the boat cruise, we had a little time to explore Fort Augustus and get a snack before boarding the bus and making a brief stop at the Commando Memorial, a striking WWI monument with stunning views of the Nevis Range all around. Our drive home took us through the Cairngorms, a national park with truly otherworldly scenery. A bubblegum-hued sunset descended, one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, as we learned about the history of the sites we passed, including Blair Castle and the Dalwhinnie Distillery. We made a brief stop in a small town called Pitlochry on the way back, where we were able to enjoy a local delight, Aberfeldy tablet. We arrived back in Edinburgh around 8:30 p.m. It was a long day but I felt like I truly got to see the greatest hits of the Highlands. If you are short on time, this is a great way to see the major sites in a day trip. One thing you should be aware of is that there is no bathroom on the bus, so plan accordingly there were well-spaced bathroom stops, which was appreciated!.

Tour was perfectly crafted, it even provided special deal for boating on Loch Ness. Driver guide was very knowledgable and very helpful. Only think I was concerned about was the accent of driver. It was too scottish for me. I wasn't able to understand some parts of his amazing stories.

It was a nice experience. Beautiful views. I wish we had a little more time to spend in Fort Augustus but, as it was a long way back to Edinburgh that was not possible.

Ness Bus gives a great tour! We saw more than we expected. Graham was a fabulous guide from beginning to the end! He's a great representative! I highly recommend that anyone considering this tour takes the opportunity! You will not regret it! You will create memories that will bless you for years to come!

Our tour guide was delightful, and the highlands were gorgeous. Unfortunately we arrived at Loch Ness while most of the eateries were closed, but on the whole the tour was very enjoyable.

A fun experience allowing visitors to experience a vast area in a day of Scotland. In addition to Loch Ness and the Distillery, there were several side stops for pictures and many references to history and movie settings. It ended up being longer than expected but bus is comfortable, driver knowledgeable and funny, so the time went fast.

What a wonderful trip! The highlands are absolutely incredible, and all of our stops to take photos were beautiful. Pictures of the highlands truly do not do them justice. Brian was our guide, and he was so much fun! He was incredibly funny and knowledgeable and made sure to point out all of the historical/nature aspects along the way. The distillery was great as well. Lots of unexpected photo stops: such as getting to pet Hamish, the hairy coo highland cattle and the beautiful waterfall. I couldn't recommend this tour enough! Loch Ness was beautiful as well. You MUST do the boat tour. I genuinely have no idea why someone would chose this tour and not take the boat tour! So amazing to actually go out on the loch. Thanks Brian! You were great!
