Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were picked up from our hotel. mik, was very knowledgable and made the morning a very relaxing one. 5 fish caught in total

Hey Paul, Thank you for excellent review. It was great to meet you both and congratulations on catching your first fish on a fly. It was very well deserved, but you had the lucky rods on the day and made Phil work the net..😀. Tight lines and hope you start fly fishing and it won’t take long before you tame the magic wand.

Hey Gael, Thanks very much for your review. I had a great time with you all and Skyler was very good at flying Kass, our female Harris Hawk. Thanks for all the videos and photos. I will post some up on the websites. .

Mik gave myself and my 14 year old nephew a great time on 13th February.

His knowledge and patience led to us catching 3 Rainbow trout which we took home for tea. Delicious.

The time with Kaz his Harris Hawk was something else.

I reckon the day was best summed up by my nephew “It was amazing and I loved every second of it thank you”

Cheers Mik.

Hey David, Thanks for an excellent review. You both done very well with the fishing and Max was a natural with Kass when he flew her around. The videos are brilliant and hope to see you both again sometime. Keep up the fishing, it’s a great way to lose a few hours and charges up the battery of life..

Hey Ben, Thanks very much for your review. A fish each on the plate is all I can ask for but yours would have fed 2. 😀. Great to meet you all give me a shout whenever you come back again.

Had the best day ever with Mik. He picked us up from the hotel, pointed out some landmarks along the way and took us up to fish one of the local lochs, Clubbydean. He had bait and fly rods, taught us how to cast the fly, provided lunch and coffee and also brought his harris hawk along, which was extremely awesome to fly her around the woods.

Mik is very experienced and knowledgable in fishing and falconry, he is also a lovely person, dedicated to giving his guests the best experience. We couldn't have chosen a better guide, thank you Mik, you legend! Slainte Mhath

Hey James and Max., Thank you for an excellent review and I had a very special day with you both. Max just heated up the fly rod for 3 hours and then you had to show him the business end. 😀 He definitely deserved a fish on the fly and am sure he will soon be landing plenty fish on the magic wand. Tight lines to you both and we will keep in touch. Slainthe Mhath.

Mick is a great teacher!
We had a mixed group of four fishers, some who had never fished before. Mick had everyone casting well enough to try a variety of techniques in no time!
He was knowledgeable about flies that would work, and even though the ponds were quiet, we caught fish!
Even though we booked late, Mick worked with us to find a time that worked. He was well organized and ready for us when we arrived.
We had a great half day fishing! Would highly recommend Mick!!

Hey Gill, Thank you for an excellent review. It was pleasure to meet you all and spend some time on the Loch on Jim’s special day. It was almost memorable if the massive Trout stayed on Jim’s line. Am sure he has the fly fishing bug now. Slainthe Mhath.

'Mick' was our guide and he was excellent! A true Scottish historian and expert. It was a cold and windy and rainy day and he brought extra jackets for us and we had an excellent time fishing and talking about Scottish traditions. Taught us about rabbits, falcons, and maggots all while witnessing the beautiful tree lined Loch nearby Edinburgh.
