Discover the natural beauty of Scotland's highlands & islands, with your own private driver/guide! 

 At aboutscotland, my aim is to show you the real Scotland, taking you to those wee hidden gems YOU! would not see with larger coach tours. My tours don't stick to strict schedules or rigid timetables allowing you more time to enjoy many of the sights and attractions on your tour. We will get up close and personal with all that Scotland, has to offer and NOT! take photo's from a distance like scheduled coach tours. You don't even have to leave your hotel! I will pick you up and drop you of door to door in your exclusive Mercedes MPV. I offer personal & customized tours of Scotland, ranging from 1 day to 30 day's and will happily create an itinerary to suite your requirements. So whether you want to experience the natural beauty of the Scottish highlands & islands, visit ancient castles steeped in history or learn the traditional ways of producing whisky at one of our world famous distillery's then rest assured you shall experience the best day & multi-day tours, taking home great memories that will last a lifetime. My tours operate from Edinburgh & Glasgow. We can also start your tour from many of our major airports, train stations and cruise ship terminals. Please have a look at a selection of my recommended day & multi-day tours. Of course if there is a specific area in Scotland, you want to visit please let me know I shall be delighted to customize a special trip for you.

Planning your trip; let me take some of the strain out of organising your visit to Scotland. Over the years I have accumulated a selection of excellent traditional b&bs guest house's & family run hotels in the highlands to suit all budgets. If your dream is to stay in a medieval castle I can organise that to. In the evening's I can also recommend the best wee! restaurants and inn's to eat offering live traditional music in the summer months.
