    Shetland Islands
    I have just returned from an extraordinary private walking tour inShetland with About Argyll: it was absolutely perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Firstly, the tour was brilliantly planned, meticulously focused on evey detail, starting from a really pleasant 12 hour voyage from Aberdeen to Lerwick. Ms. Frieda regularly got in touch with me by email, covering every aspect of the holiday. The tour included breathtaking views of cliff,s rocks and beaches, stunning bird colonies of gannets and puffins and impressive archeological sites. What struck me most was the awe-inspiring 2000 year old Broch on Mousa , in which storm petrels nest - What an incredible experience, seeing petrels going back to their nests, after spending a day at sea. Moreover, the accomodation in Scalloway was lovely and I could gorged myself on delicious packed lunches. The guide Nigel was absolutely brilliant, second to none, always showing first-class competence, in-depth knowledge , including history, flora and fauna, great passion and enthusiasm, allowing me to get to the heart of Shetland. All in all, I would definitely have another walking tour with About Argyll in the future.

    A wonderful week brilliantly guided by Lesley. Varied walks, in three stunning locations, good hotels and excellent food. Would thoroughly recommend About Argyll to those wanting guided walks in Scotland

    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.
