I cannot recommend this highly enough! Mik was a fantastic guide and an even better story teller. If you're traveling to Edinburgh, you must give Mik a call. His animals are incredibly disciplined and experts in their craft. Mik's knowledge of the sport is second to none. I can't wait to go back and try the fly fishing.

A true gentlemen and master of his craft who exceeded my expectations. Without a doubt one of the coolest things I've ever done! With... More

I have been living in Scotland nearly two years, and heard about Wild Days from the Falconry Centre at Dalhousie Castle. We went out in the morning, hunting rabbit with two of Mik's top birds, one a seasoned veteran, and the other a rookie. After parking and a 10 minute walk, we started throwing some ferrets down rabbit holes to... More
