Very knowledgeable of history. Safe driver. We were able to do most of what we wanted to do from Edinburgh to Skye and St Andrews. He even added some stops outside of our route for photo ops, for whiskey tasting, and some charming places along the way. He brought us to good places for lunch stops. Very generous with his time, and can answer most questions (if not all).
