We’re staying on the island courtesy of Calum’s Cabin. Our wee boy is currently using a wheelchair and Paul kindly made sure he was able to get upstairs for a good view. Paul’s chat and local knowledge made the trip, would recommend to everyone.

Went on the tour bus today. Paul did a great job of pointing out all the sights and his patter was on point (most of the time ). Well worth the money.
