Only your party. We like to focus all our attentions on small group; even couples or just one individual looking to maximise the value of their travel. From time to time, during busy periods, you may see people drift up and tag onto a group. I find the best policy is just to ignore such and they soon drift away, but should you feel someone is being a nuisance, we'll sense your discomfort and confront the offending party. Also, you may find that we attract attention since few guides take the trouble to don the kilt for their guests as we do. We'll patiently allow individuals to take a selfie with us if the situation allows, but again, if it's getting to be a pain, we'll simply refuse such advances.
In general, Scotland doesn't get super hot or super cold and seldom does it get super wet but rain can be stubbornly persistent. Beyond stout shoes that keep out the water and layered clothing with a good, breathable outer layer, there's nothing specific you need, but if you're susceptible to the cold, you might feel the benefit of gloves and/or a scarf. Such are available for purchase year round, though, if you need to pack light.
We like to come to you, where possible. If you're staying in a city centre location – and if you have no objection – we'll meet at your hotel, but if you're out of town or want to maintain privacy we'll be happy to suggest a meeting point. Bill favours the Waldorf Astoria for a starting point; I prefer General Register House, just opposite The Balmoral.
