    Rich L. and Duncan M. were absolutely amazing tour guides and drivers for our 10 Day Compass Buster tour. They truly made the trip perfect as they were extremely knowledgeable, welcoming and hospitable the entire trip. I fell in love with the history, the people, and the landscape. We had the chance to hike, canoe, relax on the beach, and dance to traditional Scottish dances and music. The group took a step back in time as we walked through beautiful castles and ruins. I would definitely come back with my sister in a heartbeat given the chance to take the tour with these two gentleman again. The trip is perfect for anyone travel solo or in a group.

    Really great tour! Kirsty was an excellent guide/driver. We had a lot of fun with her over the week and she kept everything running smoothly. The tour gets off the beaten path a bit so it was nice to see some spots you may not otherwise hit. Would highly recommend!

    Scotland is an amazing place so full of beauty, mystery, and adventure and on this tour we got to experience a part of it. The places we went were all so great in their own right and then the knowledge from the guides and how they portrayed the places added so much to the trip. Both of our guides Kirsty and Yvonne shared their love of the place they are from and their stories with us. I felt like a part of all of it and got to experience something real. You could tell they have pride in their country and are willing to share it with their guests. I am going to miss all our “wee walks” when I go back home. Amazing tour, amazing guides, amazing Scotland! I would highly and whole heartedly recommend this tour and this company to my friends and family!
