Adaptable tour with a friendly local guide
Laura_A, Aug 2021
Malcolm is a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and easy going with a good sense of humour. He could think on his feet and adapt to our requirements. He was good at engaging my teenage boys - he brought Scots history alive by cannily focusing on the gruesome hangings, bloody battles, body snatching. He managed to keep the boys interested despite the tour lasting 5 hours. We saw 3 castles and the tour of Old Aberdeen was fascinating.

It was nice to meet you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Scotland. Thanks Malcolm
