      Mini Bio 

      Before I moved to Scotland, I visited the country twice. Once with my parents at the age of 13 and the second time on a motorcycle trip around the north of Scotland. Both times I felt at home and on my third visit after finishing my university degree, I met Rosie, my partner. She is Scottish and from Edinburgh, after a few visits, we decided that I should move over and give it a try. That was five years ago and I never looked back.

      Since being in Scotland, I started to work in the outdoors as a guide for various groups and location all over the country. 

      Place to play 

      There are so many places in Scotland to play; some are more known than others. If I have to make a call as to where to go then, it would be the inner Hebrides, North West Highlands, and the Cairngorms.

      Not a lot of people know this

      I was born in former East Germany. More than 70 % of the price of whisky is the tax. Loch Ness is the biggest Loch in Great Britain by volume, with 7.45 km³.

      Ben was our guide. He juggled weather, our group's interests and abilities to make the trip one filled with great memories. He was well informed, always cheerful and patient and, his special gifts I think, are his love of Scotland and his true enjoyment of people.

      Ben Müller. We don’t have enough superlatives for his professionalism, kindness and ability to create an amazing experience for each person. He is knowledgeable about the history, geology, flora and fauna everywhere we visited. There was a wide range of ability in the group, but I bet each person would say they had a wonderful trip. Plus, he is funny and fun to be with. We all laughed a lot, even in some crummy weather.
      Before the trip I told Bridget that two of us have an interest in textiles. On Harris, Ben took us to a home weaver shed where everyone was fascinated. He could have just taken us to the Harris Tweed Shop in Tarbert, but he went beyond.
      We would travel with him again in a heartbeat.

      See previous comments -- Ben Mueller was perfect for us and made our visit on Isle of Skye special! Mary Nikitik was helpful and we enjoyed her walking tour -- it was a good orientation to Edinburgh.

      Ben was incredibly patient and accommodating of group demands. In a group of varying ability he ensured everyone was comfortable with the hike undertaken. His passion for Scotland was very clearly on display in his provision of information concerning the locations hiked through.

      Ben was great. He knew the hikes and was a trusty guide. There were a few little glitches beyond his control and he handled them with ease and always had a Plan B if needed. He was attentive to each of us in the group equally not just "special ones". He had an easy going personality that made him comfortable to be with and he was professional in his demeanor. I'm not much of a history buff so listening to dates is hard for me but stories about a site are more intriguing and that would make it easier for me to be attentive. Ben clearly has a love of Scotland and it shows which added to the fun of being there. I loved when he'd talk about the culture of Scotland. I'd happily go on another trip with Ben as the guide.

      Ben did very well. Always helpful and did not panic when things went wrong but tried to solve problems.

      Ben was superlative. He read the group perfectly and matched our walks accordingly. Always cheerful and encouraging. Sought feed back and was open to change. He was also part botanist, geologist, and historian.

      We all loved Ben. Ability-wise, we were a diverse group, but somehow he made everything work. We were happy walkers throughout, thanks to him. His love of the Scottish outdoors and his interest in continuing to learn stand out for me.
