● I’m not sure there is a better way to see the amazing scenery and historic sites of Caithness than a tour with Rob in his Land Rover. (Sue)
● Rob is so knowledgeable and also very personable and he took great care to see that all four of us were comfortable. You will visit places off the beaten track; most of these would be a challenge to find and visit on your own. (Sarah)
● The day was a good mix of riding and walking, and Rob is an excellent guide, knowledgeable about the history of the area. It was a day well spent! (Lawrence)
● Rob provided the most wonderful personalised tour for our family. Can’t recommend this experience highly enough! (Courtney)

Do you like the photos on our website?


We love the North Highlands – and if you can’t join us on a tour, what better way for us to share it with you than through photography. Photos are a fantastic way to communicate, whether you’re sharing your holiday snaps or capturing the memories of a treasured day. And they transcend all potential language barriers – great for a tour company!

That’s why photography features so heavily on our website. Although admittedly our offering only scratches the surface of all that the North Highlands and the North Coast 500 have to offer.

All the photos you will see on our site are taken by us and are all sights you may choose to see on one of our tours, dependent on what time of year you join us. Our Guide Robert is a passionate photographer and so his library of images during 14 years of exploring the Highlands have come in handy and he is happy to share them. We hope that you enjoy them too and may feel inspired to visit our beautiful area as as result.

For even more examples, discover our dedicated North Highlands photo albums and enjoy the journey!
