Wanderlust: The Ness Bus Whisky, Highlands & Loch Ness Tour

Ness Bus Tours - Whisky, Highlands and Loch Ness -

LOTS OF PICS!! - if you would like to use any on your site, please contact me first. thank you.

The highlight of our trip has to be on the Saturday when we went to Loch Ness. We booked the "Loch Ness, Highlands & Whisky Tour" through "The Hairy Coo" website as part of our first visit to Scotland. Admittedly,  I was worried as had never booked a tour before and my parent had traveled with another tour company and had an awful time a few years back. So I was really picky when I came to finding a tour to book with . 

I found the Hairy Coo site and liked that it was easy to book, reviews were good and it was designed for those who are young or young at heart. Booking process was easy and you pay on the day so you just tun up to one of the many meeting points that is sent to you on our confirmation of place booking email and off you go! 

Deanston distillery - Our first stop on our adventure to Loch Ness
Our guide Alistair was brilliant - funny and really knowledgeable and kept us entertained on the journey with scottish music, story telling and teaching us about historical things about Scotland. We started of with a visit to Deanston distillery, whilst some of the group chose to do this tour, me and the boy decided to take this opportunity to have a bacon roll as it was still pretty early in the day (started at about 8am and was at the distillery by 9am) 

From there we went through the mountains and highlands and saw some absolutely spectacular scenery, we were very blessed with the weather as the cloud cleared and we had blue skies for the whole day. We took some amazing pictures of Glen Coe which was the area that the James Bond film Skyfall was shot. 

We got to Loch Ness by midday where you could choose to have a boat tour or walk around the loch. we chose the latter as there wasn't the time to do both and we needed to stretch our legs. We took some great shots of the Loch, had a lovely salmon sandwich and I found what I thought anyway - looked like Nessie! :) 

We will def book another tour with these guys again! We had such fun and it was the highlight of our trip to Scotland! Thank you Alistair for being such a great guide!
