1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The Jacobite Steam Train was the highlight!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Our tour operator made everything so easy. Also be prepared for unpredictable Scottish weather!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes I feel it benefitted local people as we stayed at family run accommodation with local staff and local suppliers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. We went for my Dads 70th and we both loved it, it was the ideal trip. Perfectly organised by the team and must mention Ken & family at our accommodation. So helpful & friendly, a relaxing lodge rather than hotel with superb food and drinks.

review 15 May 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Being able to walk in the inspiring scenery.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

May was a good time to be in Scotland. If taking the steam train, be sure to book first class. The first class carriages were beautifully renovated, but the other carriages were not very good and I would have been very disappointed had I been booked in them.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Since tourism seems to be the main activity I suppose we contributed but using the hotels and visiting attractions.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good.

Many thanks indeed Cheryl. We are continually increasing our range of public transport holidays for those who actively choose low-carbon transport. We take the utmost care to choose local business partners who share our values and commitment to sustainable travel, preferring to work with locally-owned and managed businesses wherever possible. Thanks, ZoŽ

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The scenery is stunning. A pity about the weather, but can't be helped!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Do prepare for the weather. Wind factor can make it feel even colder. And, as you want to be outside as much as possible, take proper walking type waterproofs, whether you are a serious walker or not, and whatever the forecast!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The holiday benefits local economies, of course. But to think it can actually reduce 'environmental impacts' is preposterous. It also did nothing to support conservation - it was a holiday, for goodness sake!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I really enjoyed it. The weather tried to spoil it, but failed!
