I recommend

A wonderful day trip with Neal as our guide and driver. First stop to see the Maiden Stone. The second was to hear, for the first time in my life, the sea waves rattling the stones in Spey Bay. Third stop was to take photos of Fiddle Bow Rock. The fourth was discovering that the name of Cullen skink soup, which I love, comes from the village of Cullen. The fifth stop in Portsoy was a spoiler for Peaky Blinders fans. The sixth stop was to reflect on Macpherson's death. The seventh was a nice walk to the ruins of a beautiful castle. Thank you Neal, thank you Rabbies - this tour left beautiful memories.
Oh the views

Even though the the puffin birds had recently flown the coup our tour guide made the pleasant. We trudged up the hill through waist high weeds and slippery rocks to be greeted to an amazing view of the cliffs! Next he took on another lovely walk to see incredible castle ruins on yet another cliff.i would highly recommend this tour.

Glad to have Jim back as guide for this coastal trail ride. Thank God for the good weather. Jim share the history of different site with us. This trip Jim step out to guide on to walk on the narrow slope to Buchan to see the puffins. Earlier he also took to Speyside to see the big rock formation at the sea with a great beach. We went to Cullen village and Jim share all the food he has gather from previous guide comment and recommended them to us. We are glad to see the puffin. Jim took us to the slain castle too to see the beautiful ruin of the castle that inspire Dracula. I made some friends on this trip. I would recommend wind breaker at buchan. It wasn’t a super rush guide tour and I enjoy it. The trip it is on time and there are enough rest stop to stretch our leg or go to for toilet break. The group is just nice of 12 not too many. I would recommend one to take on this tour guide.
Great tour and variety of sights

Nice route and excellent guide. Loved nice sceneries and guide's stories all along the way. Amazing how he could drive and talk at the same time. But I would still suggest to fix the bus - although it was good overall, the shelf above heads made very annoying and loud squeaking sounds, thus making stories difficult to hear. You know, a tar spoon can spoil a barrel of honey, but apart from this the sightseeing tour was really great, well balanced and well planned.
Great day out
