Cancellation policy for weather or other issue
The weather in Scotland is changeable, and any time of year we can expect rain at some point. Because of this, we do not routinely cancel or offer refunds for tours due to normal rainy or windy weather. We reserve the right to alter your itinerary if required due to unforeseen circumstances. We can also offer you indoor activities and experiences that can be enjoyed no matter the weather. If, however, at any time there is a road closure or ferry cancellation, or we feel that the weather is severe and it is unsafe to commence or continue a tour, we reserve the right to cancel or curtail. If this occurs, we will offer you a full or partial pro rated refund.
We suggest that you bring weather appropriate gear, including warm, waterproof clothing and footwear, even in summer.
