We spent a splendid day with Kitty viewing key historical, geological and archaeological sites on Unst. Although we had explored parts of Shetland mainland, having a day with a driver/ guide was a nice change, especially as Kitty is so personable and informed. She was happy to share lots of information about life in Shetland. Having lunch at Victoria's tearoom was a nice idea too. Kitty's vehicle is very comfortable and we felt very safe. We were very impressed to receive further information regarding questions we had asked, after the trip.

We, being Scottish, thought we knew a fair deal about Shetland but Kitty taught us such a lot about it's history, wildlife and geology, and told interesting and amusing tales of some of it's past inhabitants. We cannot thank her enough for her Tour of the Southern half of Shetland and when we return, we shall be sure to book another of her tours. She is a remarkable young woman, managing many roles in life but her passion for her homeland is obvious and she described it with great knowledge and in a very pleasant way. Do not miss out on an opportunity to spend time in her valuable company.

We did a wonderful tour of Shetland with Kitty last August as part of a trip round the British Isles to Iceland. It was a fantastic introduction to Shetland packed with many different sights including Shetland ponies, a fabulous white sand tombolo beach, black seals, old crofts, Iron Age and Viking settlements and luckily for us an amazing amount of puffins in their cliff top nests. We had a lovely lunch as part of the tour and really enjoyed Kitty’s company and informative chat as we went along. It actually couldn’t have been better and I whole heartedly recommend.

Take it from a couple who've enjoyed dozens of tours around the globe, Kitty is not to be surpassed. Her genuinely kind and witty demeanor, coupled with her vast knowledge and experience in and around the Shetland Islands, makes for an unforgettable experience. Her advice proved to be spot on, whether it be original woolen garments, the best fish and chips to be had anywhere, or perhaps best of all, her choice of wildlife locals (puffins!!!) she's your guide!
