A Recent Review of this tour

John was a super guide. He met us at the dock and took us first to Cawdor Castle, then Culloden Battlefield, and then Clava Cairn. He knew all the history behind these places and we really enjoyed this tour. Finally we were able to go to Glen Ord for a whiskey tasting. He made sure we saw everything on our list.!!
