It’s been my dream to visit Scotland, and Niall McOwan of Scottish Guided Tours made this the trip of my lifetime. He took wonderful care of us for five days; he created so many wonderful experiences for us - I’ll never forget it - we took his Outlander Tour - as a Scot, he is a wealth of Scots history, plus - he knows Outlander the show. We missed him terribly when it was over. Ten stars!

Eddie, our most professional, congenial guide, was excellent. Our four days with him were seamless. He filled us with the zest of the Inverness/Isle of Skye area and people. My only regret was not having him with us for our entire trip. Thank you, Eddie and Scotland Guided Tours.

Our tour of the Highlands and Islands would not have been the same without Niall. He took such great care of us, planned a truly amazing tour and handled all of the logistical details. While discussing the itinerary, we started with the tour offered, and he helped us customize our five-day trip so we could experience exactly what we hoped. Additionally, we enjoyed our overnight accommodations based on Niall's excellent recommendations...
