Pre-Trip Service
I had a helpful chat with your guide ahead of the trip to find out more about what to expect. Emails were responded to quickly and were very clear. The pre-trip information pack is great. Also appreciated the lastminute call on the first day when our guide was running a bit late in traffic.
Trip Comments
Malcolm is a great guide. Knowledgeable on many subjects that brought the landscape to life - Scottish history, geology, flora and fauna. Professional in his organisation of the group around logistics and when safety was important (e.g. steep descents). And a keen eye - both in the context of tips on photography and in spotting the minuscule profile of a stag atop a hilltop a mile away! His willingness to adapt the itinerary to suit the group's fitness abilities and interests was the most impressive aspect and hugely appreciated, especially as this meant he had to pour over maps late at night after a long day. Accommodation and food at the Lovat was exceptional.

The last day at the Tree for Life is a brilliant touch. Hopefully people coming on these trips value and appreciate the landscapes they are fortunate enough to see. To learn about a project that is directly engaging with the maintenance and furtherance of these landscapes makes for a more enlightened trip and meaningful engagement with the wilderness, which I really appreciated.
Accommodation and Food
The Lovat is exceptional. Very comfortable room (though I did have a single supplement), very polite and helpful staff, and really high-class (presumably award-winning) food. It's hard to compete with that high standard and the other two restaurants used on the trip were inevitably not the same but still good food. And I'd rather have the variety of places on different nights albeit it was a good idea to have the first and last meal at the Lovat. The Lovat also had a great lounge and fireplace for post-dinner whiskies.
Your Guide
Please see earlier comments about Malcolm. Was also nice that he took some great pics on the walk that WS has a facility to share afterwards - nice touch.
The Bottom Line
Professionally run trip from end-to-end. Knowledgeable, experienced, approachable guide. Exceptional accommodation and food. Nice balance of activity and relaxation. All wrapped in an environmentally aware package.

(As a slight aside, we were very lucky that the group members had similar fitness levels and so were able to move away from the Easy grading of the trip on every day. Perhaps it would be ideal if there was a moderate graded trip for the Autumn Highlands too? It's a great time to visit and in hindsight might not have felt as satisfying a week if we had to drop to the lowest denominator in the group on very easy trails. Or are there back-up plans if there is a real split in abilities in group? I appreciate it's difficult to cater for all situations though.)

Breathtaking scenery of mountains, lochs and coastline all looking glorious in the October sunshine which lasted for the whole trip! Walking in the peace and quiet of this amazing part of Scotland with flourishing Scots pine forests and the bright autumnal colours meant this was a truly memorable holiday. I really look forward to returning again soon.

Tim was a fantastic guide - friendly, informative, helpful, and conscientious. It meant there was a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and the small group of us all got on really well. He took us on a good variety of walks and made time for stops where he shared his knowledge of the area and meant we had time to take (lots) of photos of the amazing scenery. It was good to also have the opportunity to learn some map skills and using a compass.
The Bottom Line
Really enjoyed this excellent trip.

I enjoyed every bit of our trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and always ready to support and explain. We had a lot of fun together in our group as well as many interesting discussions while and after our excursions into the beautiful Highlands. To keep a long story short - I can highly recommend such a trip to everyone!
