    Gill Brown was the best guide I could have asked for (and the best guide I’ve ever had). She made the trip so exciting and made sure we saw all the places we wanted to see. Not just that, her driving was very smooth and her knowledge of the history of Scotland was immense. Time flew by with her amazing story-telling skills! She really brought the land of Scotland to life. In just three days, I’ve done so many things, explored so much land and made memories which will last a lifetime. Until next time, Gill. Slàinte.

    Our guide Andrew was great. Very knowledgeable and had some great stories. Unfortunately, we we with many people on our minivan tour that refused to wear their masks. Our guide tried to enforce this day one, but gave up after that. After using another tour company for a day trip which checked temperatures and insisted on hand sanitizer and masks, I think Timberbush could improve on Covid safety.
