Hugh, and Skye Distillery Tours were without a doubt one of our very best experiences in Scotland, and that's saying a lot! Booking all the details with Carole was a pleasure she was so willing to accommodate us and what we wanted to do most. I traveled with my father who isn't much of a whisky drinker as such we opted to visit one of the distilleries, Raasay and a tour of the popular spots around Skye.

Hugh, as a Skye native, knew the roads like the back of his hand and we saw so much so efficiently! He checked all my Skye bucket list items in a day! This was helped by a quiet time on the isle currently, with many international tourists just coming back.
We went to Quiraing, which was one of the most incredible experiences it looks like something from another world. We stopped by Kilt Rock, the Fairy Glen, a gorgeous hidden waterfall in Uig and more. Hugh told us all about the island and growing up there and it was such an authentic experience.

He even took photos of us with his top of the line camera, and Carole was kind enough to email them over; it was like having our own private photographer!

He took us back into town so we could have lunch, he even called his sister to help us book a dinner reservation! Then we went over the Sligachan Old Bridge to the base of the Cullins where he took out a picnic basket and glasses from the back of the van and gave us the best whisky tasting I had in Scotland right there. He is so very knowledgably about whisky and the process without being pretentious at all.

Then we finished by going to Raasay which was absolutely beautiful and such a fun experience. Hugh even pointed out where I could go see some adorable Highland Cows!

Booking a tour with Skye Distillery Tours was by far the best investment we could have made to make our time on Skye the best it could be! Thanks for everything!

This was one of the best tours! Carole was a delight to work with and made booking as seamless as possible. Hugh, the driver and guide, was truly a gem! He had so much knowledge of Skye and whisky. He used to work at a distillery which made his knowledge even deeper. Unfortunately, during our tour day the weather was not on our side to get to Isle of Rassay but Hugh was determined to still give us a full day of and show us around. We ended up going to a castle, a cemetery where witches used to be tried, and ended with our own private whisky tasting directed by Hugh himself amongst the hills. He also stopped by the store so we could pick up a few things we needed at our bnb (and dropped us off at dinner!) Truly above and beyond. This was a special experience and would recommend this company to everyone!

My wife and I did a tour of Raasay and Talisker distilleries with Hugh recently. Unfortunately the weather on the day of our trip was terrible and we could only see about 20m in front of us but we had a great day visiting both distilleries and doing an impromptu tasting in the van which was very nice. Hugh has a great knowledge of whisky and Skye, sharing some local knowledge and giving us some suggestions of other things to do while on the island. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone visiting Skye.

We had a fantastic day with Hugh - I booked a tour for my partner's birthday as part of a last minute holiday to Scotland. Carole made the booking process seamless and was really helpful in suggesting options for the day. Even though two of the three distilleries on Skye are closed/have significantly moderated their tour experiences due to CoVid, Hugh and Carole made sure we had a really memorable, fun day, complete with a unique beach-side whiskey tasting, a castle tour, and a driving tour through some of the lesser known parts of the island. Hugh went out of his way to make sure that we had a great time, and driving around and chatting with him about the local area was a highlight of our time in Skye. His knowledge of both the area and whiskey in general were amazing!!

Cannot recommend enough- hopefully we'll be able to go back once the island is fully open again to do the complete tour!

We had an absolutely amazing experience with Hugh! It was one of our favorite days from our trip to Scotland. We toured Talisker Distillery and participated in the Gin making school. BUT so much more! Hugh was knowledgeable, helpful, and just overall fun to be with! We would highly recommend making this a priority during your time on the Isle of Skye.

Hugh was a fantastic guide for our drive around Skye and distillery visits. We loved his sense of humor and the knowledge he shared with us regarding Skye and its distilleries. Everywhere we stopped people knew Hugh. I highly recommend Skye Distillery Tours.

A sunny day on Isle of skye with Hugh, a great native guide and driver, he showed us beautiful spot and views, often away from the tourists highlights. His wife Carole organised a great lunch aswell. And ofcours the whisky was good.

Hugh was a fantastic guide, we did not do his typical distillery tour and he took us to all the places on Skye that he rated. I cannot speak highly enough of the day both me and my wife enjoyed it immensely, Hugh was a great guide and took us too all the sites and could not do enough for us. If you are visiting Skye do not fail to take a tour with Hugh! 100% worth it!!!!

Firstly, Carole was really responsive with our enquiry and organising our distillery tour. Hugh collected us promptly in his comfortable people carrier, and we were immediately put at ease by his friendly and relaxed approach, it was as though we already knew him. We had a full day, visiting two distilleries, Torabhaig and Raasay. Unfortunately Talisker was closed, but we did not miss out at all as Hugh had a selection of their whiskies in his boot and it was fun having a private tasting in beauty spots. As we travelled to Skye without a car we really appreciated the drive around some non touristic roads to get a glimpse of the beauty of Skye. Of course, the distilleries are in lovely scenic surroundings too! We would highly recommend.

A must do experience in Syke. From the seemless booking with Carole to the exceptional tour with Hugh, it's brilliant every step of the way. Hugh is so knowledgeable about the area, roads, distilleries, and making whiskey that the whole tour is just amazing. If you are considering any tour expeience in Skye, this is it. We have done a lot of distillery expeience and Hugh/Carole made this one the best.
