How do I choose a tour?

Blog 14 Sep 2020

Destination: Scotland.

Map? Check. Tripadvisor Reviews? Checked. Haggis? Must do.

But where should you go? What area of Scotland is the best to visit? How do you discover Scotland like a local?

We've plenty of fantastic tours to choose from, but before you jump in and book, ask yourself these questions:

How much time do you have in Scotland?

There's no right or wrong answer to this; whether your trip is a relaxing getaway or a buzzing weekender; knowing how much time you've got will certainly shape the way you'll discover Scotland.

Our Loch Ness tour is incredibly popular for those who want to see Scotland in as short a timespan as possible. In 12.5 hours, you'll see Loch Ness [tick], Glencoe [tick] and whizz through Inverness [tick] on a Ness Express with a fantastic Driver-Guide. 

Got more time on your hands? Take a look at our multi-day tours that we offer; take a relaxing trip to the Isle of Skye and stay in a traditional B&B with a Scottish breakfast waiting for you. Just one day? Escape the city and see relaxing Loch Lomond and the beautiful Trossachs National Park. Perfect for a slower pace!

What kind of traveller are you?

Are you organised? Do you live your life around your bucket list? Or are you more spontaneous and never have a plan more than a few hours ahead?

The best thing about our tours are they're bookable right up until the moment they depart! Book any tour online up until the evening before departure, and for those last-minute adventure-seekers, give our friendly Reservations Team a call in the morning and reserve a spot on your dream tour! Book today - travel today!

What's your budget?

Are you a glamper? Or does the thought of staying in a tent and travelling on a shoestring fill you with dread? On a Timberbush Tour, you can discover Scotland your way! 

All of our tours come with 'optional extras'. Want to go on a tour but aren't too bothered about taking that cruise? Weather looking a bit grey and you'd rather go for a walk than visit that Castle? No problem! We offer you as much flexibility as possible for you to build your perfect tour.

A little more budget? Our Private Hire Specialists are on hand to tailor-make an itinerary just for you. Fancy going on a Harry Potter Train tour? Or discover Scotland in style staying overnight in a medieval castle? Just ask!

Who are you travelling with?

Solo traveller or large group, it doesn't matter. We cater for groups of all different sizes; many people come on tour looking to escape the city and end up making life-long friends on board. Hop on and join in the fun with your new Timberbush family!
