    Private guided holiday
    I can't say enough about how amazing our trip was with About Argyll. You planned everything perfectly. From the gorgeous accommodations to the wide variety of fabulous meals. You even secured first class tickets for us on the Harry Potter Jacobite steam train! Our trip was memorable in every way. This was a very special time that my daughter and I had to spend together after her graduation and one we'll never forget.
    Our guide Alastair was amazing. He made us feel at ease right from the start. We never had to worry about any of the details of our trip. He was so knowledgeable about everything in Scotland--the history, geology, culture, and landscape. I don't think we had a question he couldn't answer-- and believe me we had a lot! Every walking day was the right balance of challenging but fun. Alastair's lunchtime stories and reciting of Scottish fables were a daily treat. By the end of the trip we were very sad to part from our weeklong companion. We are so grateful for About Argyll and can't imagine having a better experience!

    This was our first organised holiday with a guide. We had a wonderful time, with great walks and beautiful sights and our very friendly guide Nigel. His knowledge of the area and especially of bird made the trip excellent.

    Morar & Isle of Skye
    Our tour was brand new, Morar and the Isle of Skye. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it for its beauty and peace. The places we visited are very remote and you might not find them on your own but well worth visiting. The accomadations were first rate and the food was excellent. Our guide Leslie enhanced our hikes with her knowledge of the terrain and its history. For anyone wanting to get off the grid and unwind, this is your trip!

    Tony Warren, Canada

    Islay, Jura & Colonsay
    Our walk was arranged as a private tour, following the itinerary for the Islay, Colonsay and Jura walks. Everything was perfect, from the setting up of the tour, the accommodation on Islay, the food, the walks themselves, and, above all, our guide Nigel Scriven. The whole experience far exceeded our expectations.

    Pauline, England

    Orkney Islands
    An excellent holiday with a knowledgeable guide and friendly group. The groups are never more than eight in number so accessing smaller sites never seemed overwhelming.

    The Best of Argyll
    This was our first walking tour so we weren't quite sure what to expect. From start to finish the trip was fabulous. Very well organized, our guide Nigel's knowledge of the trails, birds and history really added to the enjoyment of the hikes and the variety of trails made each day a little different. Highly recommended.

    Discovering South-Argyll
    Very good, professional service. From pick-up to drop-off and everything in between. And real thought given to what worked best for our group given our relatively short tour - 2 days. Much welcomed flexibility. Great guide and excellent company too. One suggestion - give him a Mike as his first class insight wasn't always audible in the back of the minivan!
