Mountains, Lochs, History & Hospitality

For the vast majority of our Guests, a trip to the Scottish Highlands is absolutely essential.

For many its a case of visiting old Family or Clan Lands, and we are always happy to build any such locations, no matter how far off the beaten track, into our customised Private Tour Itineraries.

Scotland is blessed with stunning and spectacular scenery, and a Tour Itinerary to include all the best sites is everyone’s dream. Our most commonly requested Highland locations are :

  • Glencoe
  • Cairngorms National Park
  • Pitlochry
  • Oban
  • Inverness and the Culloden Battlefield
  • Loch Ness
  • Glenshiel and Kintail
  • Argyll and the Mull of Kintyre

In many ways the list of favourite places above is irrelevant. Yes, they are our most commonly requested locations, but our tours can cover every corner, and stop overnight in the most obscure locations if that’s what you want to do. As with everything else, we rely on you to tell us what you like, what you don’t like, where you want to go, where you don’t want to go then leave us to construct your perfect Vacation Itinerary.

If you only have one or two “must do” places, let us know the duration of your proposed trip, and we will build a tour incorporating those locations into an unforgettable trip.

Join us  in experiencing Island Life

In many ways, to gain a better insight into how Scotland worked in years long gone, a visit to the Scottish Islands, where many traditional ways are still practised, adds another dimension to Tours on the Scottish mainland.

The extent to which you can travel on the Scottish Islands will be dictated by the time you have available and the ferry timetables. However, here are a list of Island Tours that fall together nicely either as stand-alone tours, or as integral parts of longer tours.

  • Orkney and/or Shetland Islands 
  • Orkney combined with the Isles of Lewis, Harris and Skye 
  • The Isles of Skye, Mull, Iona and Staffa  
  • The Outer Hebrides; the Isles of Lewis, Harris, Berneray, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Eriskay and Barra 
  • The Isles of Arran, Islay and Jura

Any of these Island options can be visited on it’s own, or in other combinations. As with everything else, tell us what you would like to do, where you would like to go, and we’ll try to work out the best way to do it all in the time you have available. 

There are many other smaller Islands which can be visited using regular ferry services. There are too many to list here, but please ask if you have a specific Island requirement.
