Jamie was a spectacular guide for our private tour of northern Scotland! Being of Scottish heritage, I especially enjoyed to stories of the Burns festival and the stories of camaraderie of Scots sporting events. Our tour was truly unique with a spectacular hike to the bone caves during the afternoon. It wouldn’t have been complete without getting rained on. We were lucky to have sun also! Jamie was well informed and knew some great history and stories. He left a lot up to us, and I chose this tour because it seemed like it would very different from the popular ones, and off the beaten path. Both were true and just what we wanted because we love the outdoors, especially being able to be isolated; safely of course! There is no tour like this one, because you get to go just with your own group, in our case just as a couple, and to places that are not on the usual tours! Cheers! Victor Forsyth

We had an absolutely fantastic time on this tour. It was interesting and personable and something that I'll remember for the rest of my life. I would definitely recommend, and would be delighted to work with Jamie again, should we ever return.

Excellent experience with Craig Dale our driver. Very knowledgeable and sharing his knowledge of the Highlands throughout the trip. Friendly, friendly, we were delighted by this day. THANK YOU

Great tour, very well organized. As Jamie, our guide said, he doesn't show things, he shares. Today we saw and felt more of Scotland than any other tour.

Great and fun tour with lots of information told in an entertaining way.
