John made our first day in Scotland truly unforgettable. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area & the people so you feel like you're getting an authentic Scottish experience. John was both flexible and accommodating - spending time up front helping us plan the perfect day & allowing for time to adjust plans as we went. He was a great laugh, full of awesome stories and very welcoming. We spent a day with him exploring the countryside by van & foot, but he also caters to those looking for more of a hiking/outdoorsy/camping adventure. He also gave us recommendations for the rest of our trip at no extra cost. I'd recommend John & his company to anyone visiting the area. My only regret is that we didn't book a longer trip with him.

I had just moved to Glasgow, do not know Scotland well and had a friend making the long trip over from Australia. I could not have made a better decision than to conatct Wild Scotland and my friend has since said it was the highlight of her overseas trip which included London and Paris! We met John at Balloch and were driven to the most beautiful places in Loch Lomond. We enjoyed having some outdoor time as well. The walking was easy even for two ladies of an older age group and gave us magnificent views that we would not have seen at road level. John was extremely thoughtful throughout the day towards us and we enjoyed his knowledge of the country and area. I would like to go on another tour in the future. A big thank you to John for a wonderful day for us both.

What a hammer tour. We tried the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Tour and it was fantastic, a lot of impressions of the scots landscape, their history, very nice walking trails, added with the experience of a couple of old scots pubs including the oldest one. But this was all toped by our very nice, sympathic and friendly guide Emma and her endless knowledges about this famous country. Thanks for this and your dedication Emma. Lovely greets from Germany, Iris and Frank

I loved every minute of this tour of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. We hiked, took in stunning views and majestic waterfalls. It was amazing! John has been sightdoing for 2 years now. And before running Scotland's Wild, he was a ranger in Loch Lomond for 11 years. He knows all the best tracks and views around Loch Lomond and for that, I'm very grateful. I enjoyed every minute of fresh air, scenery and the drop of whisky too! If you're keen to hop off the bus and really experience Scotland then you need to do so with Scotland's Wild.

We have just returned from a fantastic full days tour of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. I booked and paid on line and had great correspondence from John, our tour guide, in the days leading up to the tour. On the day John was so informative and took is off the beaten track to some spectacular view points. They really blew us away! John took photos and videos of us and the scenery along the route which he sent to our phone at the end. What a great momento of our visit. I couldn't recommend Scotlandswild highly enough. Please book with them, you will not be disappointed. We have some fantastic memories to take home with us. Thank you John.

I booked this tour because I had no idea where to go on my own in this large National Park.
Booking the trip was easy and the tour itself was priceless.
John is an amazing guide. It felt more like spending a day with a friend while exploring the beautiful landscape of the National Park then being a tourist.
I definitely recommend booking this tour!
I had fun, learned a lot about the region, tasted my first whisky and met nice people. It can't get any better.
Thank you, John!

We did a full day private tour with John to explore the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. John was very well prepared, tailoring the tour to suit my parents who could not walk very fast or walk up steep terrain. John was very friendly, always polite and we were especially impressed by John's knowledge of the area and how well prepared he was for our trip (the kilt and whisky was such a brilliant idea). He also took pictures of us during the tour and made us a lovely video. We were very happy with the tour and had a wonderful time with John. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the Loch Lomond area.
