He is knowledgeable, interesting, funny, patient and very experienced. On our wild walk we learnt the history,... More

Just had a day with Mitchell and it was fantastic . We looked for sea otters, spotted white tipped and golden eagles and stalked ( without guns ) red deer. His knowledge of the area, history and wildlife is great and it's all told wonderfully. We walked over 7 miles in wet terrain but never felt tired or weary....how can... More

One of the best days i have ever had on the Isle of Skye. Mitchell was so friendly, accommodating, patient and knowledgeable. He took us to a beautiful spot and we had an incredible day fishing off of the coast of Skye. Will definitely be contacting for more adventures!

The wild walk my sister and I went on with Mitchell was definitely the highlight of my time in Skye this past week. From the minute he picked us up, Mitchell was so friendly and welcoming, as well as extremely knowledgable. He tailored our adventure to our interests in wildlife and foraging, and I learned so much about edible plants... More

We spent the day today with Mitchell and it was a day we won't soon forget. We spent the morning on a wild walk and saw historic sites from the Iron Age through WW II, not to mention some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. We had tea on top of the remnants of an Iron Age fort,... More

My wife and I scheduled Mitchell for a day long tour on Skye. I was interested in photography of animals and scenics. He took us to a private Glen in the morning where we hiked a short way for a lovely scenic view. Deer or eagles eluded us, but some other birds were photographed. He showed us old crofting areas...

We did a 1/2 day of Salmon Fly fishing w/ Mitchell in early August. Despite some typical damp Skye summer weather (Ok it was pouring for some of the time and about 10-11 degrees) it was a fantastic outing. My husband voted it the best activity of our trip. Mitchell is exactly what you expect (and want) when hiring a... More
