If you stay on the bus the whole way round, the tour should take around 90 minutes BUT you don't have to stay on - you can hop off at one of several key points and pick up the next bus or make your way back on any West Coast Motors local bus service free as part of your tour ticket.

Yes - upstairs is mostly open, but there is a small covered section just in case of bad weather (it's Scotland remember!) and the whole of the ground floor is also covered, making this an ideal wet day activity too

Excellent guide

A great way to see the island and you can see much more over the hedges than you can from a car. The guide is funny and very knowledgeable.
