John, owner of Scotland's Wild has a challenge: he's given me such great Highland tours already that I always expect the next one to be even better. But he rose to it and more for my third one in September. For two weeks we toured an itinerary we developed together: starting from Glasgow with detours around Loch Fyne and to the island of Islay, we headed north to Mallaig, the port for the remote Isle of Eigg, stopping along the way at the Morar white sand beaches and loch. After a few days on Eigg came the Isle of Skye and the adjacent Raasay. (Scotland is THE place in western Europe for lovers of small islands.) We then rounded the spectacular top of Caithness and came down the coast on the eastern side, ending up near Aberdeen. John solves logistical issues ahead of time, and knows how to give you, the visitor, exactly what you came to Scotland to experience. For our self-catering accommodation on Eigg, he brought all kinds of delicious food from Mallaig. He arranged for us to stay as the only guests at a beautiful country manor in Caithness normally open only to large groups (although like I did, he got lost a few times in this enjoyably spooky mansion :) . At a hillside castle near Cromarty, he tactfully avoided telling me about a "No visitors beyond this point" sign that I had overlooked, so I could keep on exploring the lovely garden. He was also very helpful with arangements for the Covid testing I needed right after arrival and shortly before departure. For friendliness, thoroughness, efficiency and knowledge, John really leaves little to be desired. He will ensure that you savor your own special slice of Scotland.

I had a group tour and private tours in 2018 which were simply stunning and remain a great experience. I could recommend it any time. This is customer oriented as it's supposed to be. Fabulous :-) Thanks for the lovely time...

Our hiking and distilleries tour of the Highlands with John was a fabulous experience. Our three guides, including John, were friendly, positive, knowledgeable and just plain fun. Be ready for off trails hiking and make sure your hiking boots are truly waterproof; mine weren’t and there are bogs, even in fair weather. Tour of the Cooperage was unexpectedly a highlight. Highly recommend Scotland’s Wild.

We happily managed to book John for a 10 day private tour of Scotland. It would be my 4th trip to Scotland and my partner's first time. John asked me what would be my dream trip, and I threw a huge list at him, and amazingly he was able to plan an itinerary that included almost all of the list! He made all the hotel, b&b, and restaurant reservations. We traveled from Edinburgh to Skye, Mull, Iona, Lewis and Harris, and Orkney. Stayed at some beautiful B&B's/hotels and 1 night in a luxury castle. Wonderful scenery, stone circles, and animals (deer, birds, sheep, seals, horses and shetland ponies, hairy cows, hairy pigs in Orkney). LOVED the Calanais Standing Stones. Since we are Harry Potter fans he booked us a trip on the "Hogwarts Express" train. He was very informative and took good care of my partner who is limited in physical capability. His van is very clean and comfortable. He is a very caring guide who does his best to make your trip the best it can be! We give John and his tour company the highest recommendation possible! Looking forward to our next trip back to Scotland!
