Spending a day with Les Sinclair was by gift to my husband for his birthday. I suspected my history-loving man would enjoy a guide who was a history teacher. I was right. Les just made the environs of his homeplace come alive.

Les was an informative and entertaining guide. His local knowledge enabled us to go off the beaten tourist track and to learn about the way of life in Shetland than would otherwise have been possible. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning with him.

We had an 8 hour personal tour which was expensive but worth it. We saw parts of the island which we would never have seen by ourselves. He was full of knowledge and his delivery was excellent.
