The hostel staff were lovely, helpful and supportive and George, my guide, was first class. I had a cracking five days walking in the Cuillins, which was down to George’s skill and personality. His friendly, calm, confident approach put me at my ease and gave me confidence each day to tackle the hills. George shared his depth and breadth of knowledge and experience with enthusiasm.- Linda Kerr, Skye Munro trip August 2016
