Tour Important Information

This is a walking tour, so the tour will be completely on foot.

Please wear comfortable shoes and expect pure marvellously unpredictable Scottish weather. I recommend a waterproof jacket with a hood (perhaps an umbrella as well). Sometimes the sun shines in the sky and five minutes later you can have drizzle, wind and again sunshine, maybe with an enchanting rainbow!
