Had an amazing time on this deer safari , saw five stags all in a row looking down at us - really majestic . Trip was worth it just for the scenery alone . Ian was so knowledgeable too . Well worth it and I'd like to come back and do another trip

Went on our tour at the end of October, Ian was a great guide and it was a beautiful morning, the drive up the glen and scenery were incredible. He gave us a real insight in to the rut and many other animals. We saw plenty of deer and roaring and would definately do the trip again.

Brilliant tour. Ian is fantastic - really welcoming, accommodating, and knowledgable. We went on the tour with our 16 month old son and had a fantastic time this afternoon - saw stags, does, highland cattle 😀.

Went on morning deer safari with Ian, who is a superb tour guide, with a wealth of knowledge which he shares so readily. Saw lots of deer, heard their roaring and was in awe at the beautiful scenery. We stopped at many places for photo opportunities and Ian suggested many other places to visit. I highly recommend Wild West Safaris... More

Another fantastic day with Ian. This is our second trip out with him and didn't disappoint. Ian has a great knowledge of the area and the wildlife. We got some really good pictures and it was great to hear the stags roaring. It's good that you don't have to go far from the minibus so it really is accessible for... More

Had a great trip with Ian on the morning Deer rut trip. Great scenery and many views of Stags and Hinds. Ian was full of knowledge and made for a very interesting trip.

An enjoyable day with Ian even though the weather was a bit cold and windy, which effected animal activity. We did the Wednesday trip which includes a trip down a local loch which I would recommend. Ian is very friendly and helpful and took us away from the town to see more remote countryside and coastline that we wouldn't probably... More

This was the fourth outing with Ian in his van at a different time of year to previous occasions so I was thrilled to have been able to see stags rutting first hand. Absolutely amazing experience and you just wouldn't know the places to go to see this kind of thing without the guidance of Ian who knows the area... More

We did the full day safari including the cruise. Ian has a wealth of knowledge on the geology, history, fauna and flora of the area. We saw deer, red squirrels, seals, sea eagles, lots of birds, learned about plants and their uses and how to spot animals (otters next time) and identify them. Loch Sheil is beautiful. We stopped for... More

We booked a private half day safari with Ian and were certainly not disappointed. The weather was atrocious but this did not detract from the level of enjoyment. We saw red squirrels and red deer and travelled to parts of Western Scotland we would not have had the chance to experience otherwise. Ian was an extremely knowledgeable, helpful and personable...
