I just came back from my weekender tour around the Highlands and I'm so glad to have done it as a first taste of Scotland. Everything was absolutely wonderful and there's so much nature around. Our guide Richard was hilarious and made us laugh so much, even if we semt to be a little shy. He told us amazing stories and I finally know the truth about Braveheart aka William Wallace ("Mel Gibson just can't play William Wallace... I mean he's australian and short!").
I'm already planning to come back very soon to see a little more, and I would definetely choose MacBackpackers as we got the chance to see so many beautiful hidden things in such a short time which I'm sure would have been impossible without the help of local, laid back guys as they are.
Thanks very much for letting me discover such a great country.
