A Recent Review of this tour

Staying on the shore of Loch Ness and having only 1 day to explore Skye I needed the most comprehensive tour for this magic isle. I am glad for having chosen Ally for this job. The 12 hours marathon was wonderful and not nearly tiresome. Ally is a truly local guy who seems to know just everything about these fantastic places.
