Wildlife sailing holiday in Scotland
A very interesting experience for people who loves nature, sea and peace. (more)Beatrice Just
Michael and Colette are wonderful hosts and very patient with teaching us. We enjoyed their company. (more)Kathy Wuerch
Brilliant holiday...both Michael and Colette were passionate about conservation matters and the threat to the marine environment which couldn't help but rub off on everyone on board. (more)Roy Owen

Short break cruise in Scotland, Western Isles
Memorable parts? The stunning scenery and peaceful moorings. The wildlife especially the seals and beautiful shoals of jellyfish floating like alien creatures in a calm sea. The first ever fish caught by one of our party - a splendid mackerel! The delicious food and good company of Michael and Colette.

Adventure cruise in Scotland, lochs and canals
A fabulous unique opportunity to enjoy and marvel at nature in all its glory....The most outstanding part of the trip was definitely the experience of being immersed in the stunningly beautiful environment of the lochs of western Scotland. (more)David Ritchie
A really terrific week which we will always remember (along with how to tie a bowline). Two of my colleagues at work have already expressed interest! (more)Helen Newton
Absolutely fantastic for ALL ages, young and old. Colette is a brilliant cook and the meal she made out of freshly caught Mackerel fish has set a very high bench mark to beat. Michael knows so much and is a very patient teacher. We miss them dearly - thank you for a trip to remember! (more)Lani Retter
