We had an excellent day out with Andrew taking in many iconic sites and the amazing countryside. He carefully planned our day, and when the weather disrupted our original hiking plans he was able to provide a great alternative. He is also an exceptional storyteller; we felt completely engulfed in the history and culture of the Highlands. I highly recommend taking a tour with Andrew.
