Experience the true Scotland

Add some history and culture into your private tour. Our rich culture is best experienced after learning about our history. Battlefields like Culloden, Bannockburn and Loudoun Hill are drenched in history for the fight for Scottish freedom hundreds of years ago. All these battlefields are close to historical cities with very different stories. Find out more with us and our guided tours.


Your Scotland

Are you a foodie?

You wouldn't believe how good the food can be in Scotland. Unlike other tour companies, we focus on food, making sure all our foodie clients are satisfied. Tell us if food is a big contributor to your guided tour experience and we will show the fine Scottish culinary produce.

Travel like royalty

It's not all about the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, we know how to relax here in Scotland. We have some of the best hotels and luxury spas in Scotland. Yes, many of our castles are museums or ruins but some of them are spas. Just ask us to add a spa to your holiday and come relax in Scotland.

Scottish Tour from Scottish Guides  

Our private tours of Scotland are made by Scotland's most passionate tour guides who have lived in Scotland their whole life. Our guides are Scottish born and bred just like our company is too. We believe this gives us the enthusiasm to create exciting bespoke private tours for you using the information we have built up over the years of travelling Scotland ourselves.

This takes the pressure off you and allows you to concentrate on relaxing and enjoying your bespoke private tour of Scotland. 

Shore Excursions

We can collect you and drop you off at the port  for personal tours at times that suit you.  We currently offer guided personal tours from  Leith and guided personal tours from Greenock, check out our other shore excursions for tours from cruise ships. We can collect you from anywhere in Scotland if you make a personal request. 

Tour Scotland starting from where you are. Our main location for our private tours is Glasgow and the main cruise port Greenock.
