Absolutely loved this. My daughter and I spent a couple of days in Inverness and on one of those days we did the open top bus tour. It was so cheap and because you can get off and back on again anytime you like for the whole day. We managed to get on at a stop very close to the hotel we were staying at which was great for get back again. We managed to get of near the nature reserve, the botanic gardens which near the leisure centre too, Inverness castle, bus station where we popped into a cafe for lunch then got back on the bus, it even went down to the jacobite boat tours. Highly recommend this perfect outing :-)
