    It was exciting to see the northernmost spot of Scotland but the real treat was our tour guide, Malcolm. He was extremely knowledgeable on so many topics. He knew the history, name origins, flora, fauna. He was a treasure trove of information. Loved him.

    Most enjoyable tour. Vicky, our driver and guide was most helpful and attentive to all our needs. Her running commentary was most informative and entertaining. My husband and I are getting a bit old and decrepit and she looked after us well.
