Iain was a phenomenal tour guide! Sweet, kind, funny, charming and extremely benevolent with his knowledge and his heart. I toured with my aunt, just the 2 of us, and we had such an amazing time with Iain. He told wonderful stories, knew all kinds of history of everywhere we went and tons of other little bits and tips that really made the experience special. We were looking at areas our ancestors came from and just enjoying the local scenery, it was lovely! We could not think of a better way to spend a day travelling in Scotland! If you are looking for a private tour guide, look no further, because this is the company to book with. I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Worth every penny and more, and if/when we return to Scotland I will make sure to book another day with Iain!

Iain Stewart, Scottish Tour Guide for your Private Tour of Scotland For a private tour of Scotland, this flexible form of travel provides an ethnological, insiders view of life in Scotland. Start from Edinburgh, Glasgow or elsewhere in the UK. Explore favourites such as Edinburgh, St. Andrews, and the Isle of Skye but also go where YOU want to go: from watching sheep herding in the Scottish Highlands, to full-flowing Borders waterfalls in the changing light, to visiting literary, TV and movie locations, to highland games, to idyllic islands, to eating freshly caught seafood, to savouring fine malt whisky, to being at one with nature, and to being a part of our many local customs and traditions.

For those wishing to join existing groups of people on one day or multi-day tours on pre-arranged days i.e. non private tours in Scotland, visiting Loch Ness, Stirling Castle, Glengoyne Distillery and many other places, I recommend:
