Fabulous day! Thank you so much Andy for showing us the Wildlife high lights of skye. We were lucky to see sea eagles, golden eagles, otters, seals and so much more. Your knowledge is impressive and your enthusiasm infectious. Thank you very much.

It was a good decision to book this tour with Andy. We saw plenty of wildlife like otters, seals, dolphins, deer, golden eagles, sea eagles and different other birds. A very entertaining day with a delicious lunch. Highly recommendable and well worth the money.
