I am 71 and traveled as a single using the single supplement.  I
did the Scottish Dream Tours "Highlands and Islands" with 7
others.  The tour itself was 16 days.  I went to Glasgow a few
days early to get used to the time difference.  I stayed at the
hotel where the tour started so I didn't have to move.  I had
done that on previous trips and found that to help a lot.  I live in
WA State so time difference is 8 hours.
My mobility problems consistent primarily of stamina and
uncertainty with rugged terrain.  I found that I had no problems
whatsoever on the trip.
The tour group is very small and individual needs are looked
after.  The tour pace is relaxed and unpressured.  All the details
are managed by the guides so you can simply relax and enjoy
the fabulous trip. Shannon and Mario handle the baggage so
you don't have to worry about your suitcase. We traveled in a
16 passenger van with plenty of room for each person; the van
was easy to get in and out of.  They always made sure that the
van was as close as possible to wherever we were stopping.  I
always had access to the van if I wanted to stay on it for short
periods or come back before the rest of the group.
The accomodations were in terrific small hotels or
bed/breakfasts all of which had great atmosphere and were
well-appointed.  You get the feeling of the Scottish culture as
you journey thru the countryside.  Great scenery, great people,
great food. Shannon has really perfected the itinerary for each
of his tours giving you maximum exposure to the area you're in.
At first glance, you might feel the price is higher than some of
the other big tours on the big buses with big groups of people.  
However, you quickly learn that the price includes all the
lodging, at least 2 of 3 meals each day (often all 3), entrance
fees at attractions, ferry fares, etc. and the opportunity to have
a relaxed in-depth experience.  I would certainly say that you
receive excellent value for the price.
I would highly recommend the Scottish Dream Tours to you.  I
would be happy to answer any other questions that you might
have.  Shannon has put a great deal into his tours.  You'll have
the trip of a lifetime!

Scottish Dream Tours is a small group tour operator that creates, arranges, schedules and
conducts each of our tours personally in order to bring you the very best that Scotland,
Ireland, Wales and England have to offer. We are usually only able to offer each tour just
once a year and we only offer around 12 scheduled tours a year. We specialize in quaint
tearooms, amazing castles, glorious gardens, cozy pubs, fascinating history, local folks
and flavor, picturesque villages and spectacular scenery. We believe there is no better way
to see these lands than on a small group tour that allows for a slower pace and time to
