Adventurer's Stories about Andy
Andy was delightful. He managed our varied interests very well and tried to accomodate everyone's desires. He was a good and safe driver and had a very pleasant manner. We did however have some expectation that our guide would be very familiar with the orkneys wildlife and perhaps pre history. Andy seemed somewhat familiar but in a number of instances it was his first visit to the location.
TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE:
Many thanks for your feedback. Andy is indeed a great guide and has been to Orkney prior to this trip. Orkney is a unique and special part of Scotland both in terms of history and wildlife. As a guide, unless you were lucky enough to grow up or live on Orkney, it does take years of visits to build up an in depth knowledge of every historical fact and wildlife specific to that area. It was great that Andy was familiar in many instances and those areas where he was less familiar serve as areas for knowledge building for the future. I do hope that these small knowledge gaps didn't detract from your overall enjoyment of the trip.
