“If we could give 6 stars, we would! Our experience with Serenity Scotland was exceptional. Ian Stewart, our tour guide, knew how to pace the day, gave wonderful recommendations for delightful meals, and our lodgings were always first rate. I wouldn’t tour the country any other way! We saw so much in our 5 day tour, and learned loads about our Scottish roots. Tapadh leat, Serenity Scotland!”

“We could not have asked for a better experience with Iain as our guide. We had planned the outline of a trip with our travel agent and expected that we were hiring a driver to get us from place to place, but Iain was so very much more. He was completely in tune with our preferences and made each day a fantastic experience. He even made dinner reservations for us! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Scotland as well as the geography and important sites, and we learned so much while enjoying the beauty of the country. Were we to plan another trip to the UK, we would definitely work with Iain again. Thank you, Serenity Scotland!”

“A tour with Iain Stewart, Serenity Scotland, was a gift we gave ourselves and our family. From Edinburgh west to Arisaig, Skye, Mull, and islands in between, three generations of family leaned into our shared history and love of Scotland. Iain is akin to a great symphony conductor, weaving relationship to place and time into a harmony of spirit that touches each one he guides into a unique experience. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our trip with Serenity Scotland.”

“Iain Stewart was the most professional, gracious and informative guide imaginable. We walked parts of the Fife Coastal Path over 4 days….Iain took genuine interest in the reasons for my trip. I learned so much about my heritage and the history of Scotland in the most experiential and stunning way possible. “

“Touring with Allan was like coming to Scotland and traveling with one of your friends around the countryside while he showed you the sites.”

“Seeing Scotland through the eyes of Iain Stewart is a magical experience. Our group has traveled with Iain a number of times over the years, including to the Orkneys and the Outer Hebrides. Iain takes you off the heavily-traveled tourist path to cozy seaside villages, windswept ocean trails, to solemn ancient standing stones and vibrant, music-filled pubs. His incredible knowledge of his beloved country, its people, its history and its language truly bring Scotland alive for his travelers. He is also an accomplished musician, and if you’re lucky, he might play a fiddle tune for you.”

“Tour was great and Allan, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend.”

“Our six tours with Iain have included group demographics of ladies only, family (including adventure seeking teenagers) and seniors. While on tour, Iain has thoughtfully connected with each group member providing a meaningful, personal and unforgettable experience for all! We often find ourselves telling an Iain joke or sharing information learned to others.

These Canadians have loved each unique adventure with Iain through Serenity Scotland and are dreaming of ‘next time’!”

“Ireland was a delight to visit because of Iain Stewart and Serenity Scotland. He worked out our trip around the things we wished to see and explore. His knowledge of Scotland and Ireland and insight on the history and people just added to his wonderful sense of humor. We would travel with him again any time.”

“We did a 10 day customized tour with Iain. 5 nights in England and 5 nights in Scotland. We were two couples traveling together. It was an amazing trip! I highly recommend Iain. His knowledge of the history of the area, his driving, commentary, and overall his accommodating effort were outstanding. He knew places to visit, overnight accommodations which were all made in advance, and his recommendations for restaurants were all perfect for us. All of our expectations were met, plus more.
If traveling in this area again, we would definitely use Serenity Scotland Tours.”
