Dear Steve,

Just to say how much we enjoyed our Speyside / Cairngorms / Moray Coast wildlife trip with you (October 2018).  Thank you for looking after us so well.  We had a Wonderful week in Scotland with you as our guide.  We experienced such a wide range of habitats including mountains, forests, moorland lochs and the shoreline that it is difficult to choose a favourite.

I feel particularly priveleged to have see the grouse lec; golden and white tailed sea eagles; pine martens ; red squirrels; red deer and an incredible display of diving gannets.  Your expertise on the wildlife of Speyside and the surrounding area gave us an unforgettable holiday.  We hope to join you again on another trip in 2019.

Feel free to quote us, your trips are the best.

Richard and Hazel.
