What people are saying about Armadale Castle & Gardens

We had a really nice trip in a small group of 7 participants, which was great! We got to see so many beautiful places, Jo P. knew so much about all the places we visited and passed by in the bus. It was the perfect mix of doing things together and time for ourself to explore the nature. Jo asked us to write down some songs we would like to hear on our last day in the bus - loved that :) (But music was nice anyway on our journey)

Awesome experience

It was worth every penny. Our tourguide Ross made it a special experience since his famiy's history is tied to the lands. It's amazing how much you can learn and see in just 3 days. Also met a great bunch of nice people on the bus. If you are considering booking, you should definitely do it!!

This tour was the highlight of my trip to Scotland!

The tour guide (Murray) was so kind and really brought us all out of our shells so that we were all friends at the end! Not to mention the AMAZING scenery that we were able to see ... this tour was truly unforgettable.

Fantastic experience! A must see in Scotland. Our knowledgeable tour guide Charlie went above and beyond to make sure the whole bus enjoyed the tour and seen as much

Amazing tour worth every penny. Thank you Glenn for making the tour so much fun :)
