Our guides are all skilled and trained in courier work on coaches. We practice and improve this skill on a very regular basis, as we are eagerly hired by the shore excursions companies supplying coach guides to the cruise ships visiting Invergordon.
Tour operators visiting the Highlands can commission any of our guides for hop-on guiding. We often join coach tours at locations in the Highlands to give a really high quality and entertaining guided tour during that leg of your journey. We can tailor our commentary to appropriate themes which you may require, and can engagingly interpret all that the coach passes, as it rolls along. We can also provide some of our own highlights, as follows:-
Hugh and Ian have extensive weapons collections relating to the period of the Jacobite Wars in the 1600s and 1700's, and are happy to give an exposition on how they were used.
Uisge Beatha - the Water of Life
