Our guide/owner was funny, as well as, knowledgeable about the Isle of Skye. It helps to be from there. We spent 8 hours exploring the Isle, while looking for the sun! A great day that gave you breathtaking views and the taste of Scottish whiskey.

Donny, our guide, was as delightful as the scenery. He was great craic and, even better, so very knowledgeable. He showed us all about this extraordinary, indescribable island and kept up a jolly and erudite patter all the while. Do yourself a favor and make sure that it is he who shows you this astonishing place.

Had a tour with Donald this past July and it couldn’t of been a better day! I don’t drive myself and really enjoyed seeing the island without the worry of public transport. My favourite part was the Fairy Pools, you’d really have to see it to believe it! Honestly, fabulous day!!
