This morning Katy took us on a 3 hour guided walk around a mountain. She was interesting, knowledgeable and nice to be around. We learnt some local history , facts about local plants - the wood sorrel & bilberries in particular were delicious. The weather was kind which helped but she pitched it just right. Would definitely highly recommend. Thank you.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your walk and the bilberries! They're having a bumper year here. It was lovely to show you a little of the area, and I hope we can welcome you back here again soon.

Katy took us, a family of five ranging from 4 to 13 yrs old, on a guided walk/hike in the local area. It was perfectly paced for all three children. Katy was full of fascinating facts and the children barely noticed the walk - not an easy task with a 13 year old in tow! 3 hours flew by and we enjoyed the rest of our stay all the more having had such an enriching introduction to the area. Thank you so much for bringing the local landscape to life for us. Family hikes are great but don’t hesitate to book a guided walk with Katy if you stay in Braemar- it will definitely be worth it!

My wife and I recently toured the Scottish Highlands. I was considering renting a car but was a bit nervous about driving on the left side, roundabouts, as well as avoiding the ramifications of visiting distilleries. I did some research and found The Braemar Highland experience. I had a nice back and forth email correspondence with Katy and Julian Fennema. I decided to ditch the rental car and for less money book Braemar for 2 all day bespoke tours. We were able to craft 2 tours that allowed us to see all the things we knew about, and many places and sites that they were able to recommend outside of our radar. What a fantastic experience. We saw everything in the areas that we wanted to see along with expert and intimate knowledge at every stop. We saw a multitude of natural and historic sites, a cooperage, distillery, and everything in between. It was an incredible informative experience and one we could not have accomplished without their guidance. I cannot sing their praises enough, they truly made our trip a memorable and fulfilling experience.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed it - we would have happily spent another week with you showing you more of the area - you were lovely guests! With such a scenic area, it's always rather nice to be able to enjoy it rather than dealing with our roads! Hope you have some great photos of your holiday and that we are able to welcome you to the area again in the future. Best wishes, Katy and Julian

Spent 9 hours, 12 miles and 3300 feet of climbing Lochnagar in a circle from Glen Muick with Julian. Did the off-road glen tour with Katy. The best of guides, lucid, intelligent, personable, fascinatingly informative. They know and love the area, its history, its culture, and its nature. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

9 hours, 12 miles, 3300 feet of climb and one offroad tour later, we feel we are qualified to say what lovely guests you were and that it was a pleasure to show you some of the area! It's always lovely to learn from our guests, and I particularly enjoyed learning more about the Mayfly - thank you! We hope that your legs are recovering and that you have a fabulous time in Edinburgh. Best wishes, Katy and Julian

Recently got in touch with Braemar Highland Experience to book a private walking tour up Derry Cairngorm and Beinn Mheadhoin in the Cairngorms. The booking experience and payment option was easy and a plan was made as to when and where we were to meet on the day. Julian was a very safe pair of hands to lead me on this epic - 19+ mile, 2 Munro - day in the hills. He provided chat when required but knew when to leave me to slog it out on the tough bits. He followed my lead when I asked to stop to refuel or when I just needed to breath! He set a decent pace and at no point did I feel rushed - which was just as well as the weather gods were smiling on us and gave plenty of opportunities for me to stop for photos of the stunning scenery. I certainly plan to book BHE again for another jaunt into the mountains - if Julian can put up with my chat!

Thank you for the lovely review, and for the lovely day in the hill. We certainly enjoyed ourselves with some great views, I hope that the photos are really good. Chat and company was ideal - Julian is already hatching some plans for other days out with you.
