    This was my 5th tour and I love Blue-Roads!!!!! Love the small groups.....this trip had only 6 passengers. Love how the tour directors, apart from the wonderful knowledge they impart, are so passionate about their tour. They know little hidden secret places, My favorite was Dunbeath harbour...

    Excellent value, great location, fantastic enthusiasm for the region, wildlife, history, culture and opportunities. Meals were local and quality, accomodation was comfortable and great snap shot of the area and it's connection with the north west.
