We re so thankful we found Craig on a travel blog. My husband, my son and I had an amazing 8 days in Scotland with Craig as our driver/guide. We gave him an idea of what we wanted to do and he created the perfect itinerary and booked all of our lodging and ferries. He picked us up in the morning on day 1 from Edinburgh airport, and we immediately started our tour. We spent one night in Pitlochry, 2 nights in Skye, one night in Oban, 2 nights in Islay, and our last day in Edinburgh. We covered everything we wanted to do and see. He also does tours in Ireland and the U.K. Unfortunately he was booked so we were not able to have him with us in Ireland. Craig is very knowledgable, a great driver, an easy person to get along with and flexible with our plans. I recommend him to my friends and family. I wish we could give him 10 stars!!

There were 5 of us on a 12 day tour with Craig. This was my third tour with Craig and would take a tour with him a fourth time. We traveled from Edinburgh, to the Isle of Bute, the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Lewis & Harris and visited many places where my ancestors were born and lived. We stayed at a hotel, a beautiful 5-bedroom house in Loch Lomond National Park on Loch Long, a quaint and comfortable cottage on the Isle of Skye, a 3-bedroom apartment at Lews Castle on the Isle of Lewis and a B&B in Inverness. All of these wonderful and beautiful accommodations were made by Craig. The entire trip was fabulous! Craig is very knowledgeable about Scottish history, wildlife, flowers, trees, and everything else about Scottish life. If you're thinking of taking a tour through any part of the UK, do not take a tour bus, contact Craig and have your own private guide who will show you places that big tour companies cannot.

We had a 12 day trip that included everything from coastal towns to remote mountains to ancient cemeteries to dramatic island cliffs. Throughout, Craig demonstrated surprising knowledge, flexibility, patience, and sense of humor (a master of the groaner Dad joke!). Highly recommend giving him a call if you are heading to the UK.

Craig was the best driver/guide that we have ever had. His local knowledge for facts and figures was outstanding and he made the most of our days visiting many places on both days that we were with him. His vehicle is a very comfortable 9 seater minibus ideal for a group such as ours of 7 people. Cannot wait to have more tours visiting the beautiful scenery and towns of Scotland with this amazing guy and his kilt. Well done Craig keep it up

We had an outstanding tour with Craig throughout Scotland and Ireland. The total time touring was roughly 14 days. We were a party of 5. Craig booked all the hotel rooms and had each day planned. Craig took us to locations that larger tours could simply not accommodate. Craig was extraordinarily knowledgeable and was able to point out interesting history or information at every location in both countries. The Highlands of Scotland were stunning in their beauty. Since we were a small group, we had opportunities to stay in smaller towns and smaller inns. Each location was unique in its own way. We were able to experience the smaller towns and even met a few of the locals in their pubs. Ireland was the equal to Scotland in beauty, each country offering something different experience for the traveler. Craig always had different backup plans for each days events depending on weather conditions. Flexibility due to inclement weather is key. Thankfully, the weather was unseasonably good but I'm confident that Craig would have found wonderful locations for us to visit no matter the weather. If you want a tour that is an experience of a lifetime, try Craig's Mini Tours of Scotland, the UK and Ireland.
