“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.”

“Hats off to you for an excellent Scotland tour. We found our roots in Lochinver, Dallachulish, and Crimond and that was the intent of our trip to 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.”

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

“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.”
