The itinerary was fantastic, and what we most appreciated is Iain would offer suggestions to alter it based on what he quickly learned would be of most interest to us. He always offered the option, of course, to stick to the original itinerary if desired.
Iain didn’t provide a tour, he enabled an experience of a lifetime –one in which
we will never forget, and am looking forward to continuing in the future. We also
felt like we gained a friend. We felt sad the following week, waking up and
asking “where are we going to go with Iain today?” But, all good things must
end, but the story can be continued….

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:
