We booked two tours in the same week, and both days were very enjoyable and entertaining. Western Scotland and Skye are fantastically beautiful places, and John is a wonderful tour host. Highly recommended!

Don't go there, it's horrible. But I'll be going back at the earliest opportunity! Take midges seriously when planning your holiday for the summertime - they aren't funny.

I don't think that you came on a tour with me and yes midges can be a problem sometimes but in the nine years that I have been running tours no one has ever found them a problem
