A Recent Review of this guide

We loved Niall and our tour to Rosslyn Chapel, the Scottish Border, Hadrian's wall... He showed up promptly at our hotel in his kilt. He explained that Kilt's are used for dress occasions, however, he uses his for conducting tours. It was a plus in our opinion and made for great photo ops. Niall was very knowledgeable about each site we toured and spots along the way. He is very personable, we feel that we visited Scotland with a friend. Definitely recommend Niall. Wish we had more time w/ him.
