"I went on quite a few different tours throughout my vacation to Scotland, and I have to say out of all of them, this one was the absolute best, mainly because of our wonderfully crazy and fun driver/ tour guide Stephen. Thanks to the Hairy Coo, my three day trip to the Isle of Skye was amazing. And not just because of all of the wonderful places we stopped, planned and surprises. But because of Stephen’s retelling of the Highlands, Scotland and Scottish clans history while driving through was very entertaining and engaging. Getting to know a bit more about the history of Glen Coe, and the stories behind landmarks throughout the trip made seeing them in person more impressive and memorable. His recommendations and knowledge of the best restaurants and places to eat and see were invaluable and made the trip that much more enjoyable. The surprise/ bonus stops to see Hamish and Honey were very welcomed and enjoyable. And fortunately, TSA never asked the livestock question when flying home. I highly recommend booking a tour with the Hairy Coo while visiting Scotland."..."
