    Gill Brown was the best guide I could have asked for (and the best guide I’ve ever had). She made the trip so exciting and made sure we saw all the places we wanted to see. Not just that, her driving was very smooth and her knowledge of the history of Scotland was immense. Time flew by with her amazing story-telling skills! She really brought the land of Scotland to life. In just three days, I’ve done so many things, explored so much land and made memories which will last a lifetime. Until next time, Gill. Slàinte.
