"We absolutely loved the Earnslaw Exclusive experience which was the highlight of our honeymoon. Friendly staff more than willing to accomodate us with weather changes, great helicopter which we had to ourselves and pilot (Scott) who shared his local knowledge. We landed at a couple of secluded locations and the views were absolutely amazing. The highlight of 20 minutes within Earnslaw Burn was fantastic and an experience we will never forget! Thanks team!!"
