Gordon led my husband and I on a walking/hiking/eating tour of the Isle of Skye in September 2013. We had a wonderful time. He had us taking a dip in the Fairy Pools, crossing fields full of sheep in pursuit of waterfalls and climbing up and over mountains to find isolated beaches. Often, we were the only people visible for... More

Our family did a private day tour with Gordon on October 3rd to wrap up our travels in Scotland before we move back to the USA. Our day tour consisted of leaving Inverness and making many memorable stops along the way. Our first stop was a pasture of highland cows that we were able to feed. From there was a... More

Due to the time of year I had to book a private tour for my wife and I, a day trip from Inverness to Skye Island. She was ill the day of the tour, so it ended up being just me and the driver/guide. Pretty pricy, but absolutely GREAT!!! Sandy, my tour guide, was a total surprise. He was articulate,... More

We did a loop out to Eilean Donan and tacked on a trip over the bridge to Skye. There is a great viewpoint overlooking the bay by there and with sunny, clear skies you could see for miles and look at the many surrounding islands. The drive out to the castle was gorgeous, even though the deforested mountains are kind... More

Thank you for the unique review - you were clearly very interested in the flora and fauna of the Scottish Highlands, so we are glad that Gordon was able to show you plenty of this, in addition to many other highlights of the area (and of course some Highland cows to entertain your daughter!). Thanks for choosing WOW Scotland! More

Our group of 4 visited Skye with Gordon on September 24. It was an interesting drive out to Skye, much of it on single track roads keeping things interest. Gordon knew all the viewpoints that gave us the best pictures and we were fortunate to have some sunny skies over Skye to allow us to get some nice shots. Nice... More

Sandy picked my sisters and I up from our hostel and took us out around the highlands. We asked to see things that we wouldn't be able to see on a big tour bus style tour, and we asked to not spend all day in the car. The resulting tour took us from popular sites (Loch Ness) to small church... More
