Just completed the Isle of Skye and Highland adventure tour and it was great! Shep (our awesome tour guide) was not only knowledgable on the history and tales of the highlands but he knows the area like the back of his hand so we were able to decide what we wanted to see and do! There was swimming in Loch Ness, visiting the Faerie Pools (swimming for those brave enough!), white water rafting, great nature walks and of course what tour of the highlands is complete without a distillery tour and whiskey tasting! Met some great people and definitely 5 of the best days of my Europe trip so far!
