    Loved the tour very much. Michael was very knowledgeable and fun. Despite the Covid-19 impact in most of the region, he managed to accommodate the route and added additional views as we were a very small group and were quick to visit and covef the castle. A note to all that are considering Scotland as staycation destination, it is somehow quiet but nonetheless most of the sight can be visited and enjoyed, possibly not at full splendour as in a regular August, but a great experience definitely.

Really nice tour, Stuart was really a nice extra do this trip, he had lots of stories to tell. Beautiful scenery through this trip, Loch Lomond was amazing, the boat ride is really worth it. Just a bit sad that we didn't get to go to the Wallace monument, and we were so close to it. I think that who organizes this ride should have that in mind...
