Bring warm and/or waterproof clothing, no matter what the forecast appears to be…Scotland’s weather is very unpredictable!

Don’t forget your camera to capture all the lovely scenery and wildlife you’ll encounter on tour, which you can later share with us online. #JoinTheHerd!

We must remind you that while picturesque and quaint, many of the suppliers in smaller towns across the Highlands do still prefer cash payments.

You are welcome to bring along a carry-on bag on the tour which can be packed with essentials for the day, but we would advise keeping this bag as light and small as possible to maximise your comfort onboard.

Departures must meet a minimum number of passengers in order to operate. Passengers affected by cancellations will be contacted the day before departure to discuss a full refund or transfer to another operator.

  • Masks are still compulsory on board.

  • Social distancing is not possible on our coaches and we ask that you please respect your fellow travellers' personal space, and be patient whilst others are boarding and departing the vehicle. Everyone will be coping with the relaxed restrictions at their own pace and we would like to create a friendly environment for everyone on tour.

  • Due to reduced staffing, our morning on-call service is not available. This means we will not be contactable on the morning of departure. Therefore it is important that you contact us with any questions before your departure day, and plan your timings to the departure point in advance. However most commonly asked questions are covered in our Essential Information/FAQ section of the website, https://www.thehairycoo.com/essential-info/

  • We urge you to get in touch with us via email if you experience any Covid-19 symptoms in the days leading up to your tour. Our tours are fully refundable up to 24 hours before departure.

    However, if you experience symptoms within 24 hours of departure, you will not be permitted to join the tour. In that instance, you will not be reimbursed, which is why we urge all guests to consider having adequate travel insurance.

  • All guests on board will be required to complete a Track and Trace form prior to boarding the coach. We also ask all guests to download the Protect.Scotland app whilst visiting Scotland. In addition, free Lateral Flow tests are available at most pharmacies and we actively encourage everyone to take one on the morning of your tour so we each play our part in keeping one another safe.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to seeing you soon.
