Your details

What would you like to do on tour?

One of the best touring experiences I've ever been on! Our local driver took at care of all the driving (which you'll find is such a blessing) organization and well.. everything! Couldn't have had a more relaxing and enjoyable trip! Would highly recommend to anyone.

I couldn’t possibly say enough positive things! Never have I had such a relaxed and fun tour experience in addition to leaving it feeling I’ve made a new friend. Great value. Just an incredible touring experience!

Perfect!!! The best tours we have ever experienced. It was the best experience we ever had; the guides were extremely knowledgeable and just fun to be with. They couldn’t do enough for us and were so reliable.

Our driver-guide was extraordinary with a wealth of knowledge and an easy-going, good-humored personality. Our guide knew all the secret spots to show you the real Scotland and it's glorious. I give my very highest rating and thanks for a tremendously enjoyable vacation.

The ultimate chauffeur vacation in Scotland

Customize your vacation to suit your needs

Despite being a relatively small country geographically, Scotland really does have it all when it comes to outstanding natural beauty, dramatic sites of historical significance and fantastic wee towns and cities to enjoy a chat with the locals or do some shopping.

 

We have listed some highlights below, but rest assured that your private driver-guide will be happy to help you plan out the perfect itinerary for your stay.

The Highlands & Islands

Where to start!? It is not difficult to see why the region was named as a top 10 destination in Lonely Planet’s ‘Best In Travel 2019’. Absolutely jaw-dropping scenery, historic castles, romantic ruins, majestic wildlife,  picturesque quaint little towns and of course friendly and hospitable locals, the highlands and Islands really is the Scotland of your dreams.

 

Oh, and did we forget to mention that the region is home to the tallest mountain in the UK - the imperious Ben Nevis and also home to one of our most famous citizens, deep below the glistening waters of Loch Ness!

Golf, whisky & castles

galore

Three things that we Scots can proudly claim to do better than anyone in the world. Known as the home of Golf we can boast over 550 courses for you to play on, including the world-renowned old course at St Andrew's. 

 

Whisky Galore is the name of a famous old film about a small Scottish island running out of whisky, but with over 120 active distilleries in the country, there is little chance of that happening today! No trip to Scotland would be complete without a taste of the water of life - or ‘uisge-beatha’ in Scots Gaelic.

 

Wherever you find yourself in Scotland, you will never be too far away from one of our spell-binding castles steeped in centuries of legend and majesty. With so many castle sites it can be hard to know where to start, but our experienced driver guides can help you plan your visit to see some of our most iconic fortresses, or if you would prefer we can visit a more off the beaten path to visit a more romantic clifftop ruin.

Take some time out with a city break

Scotland isn’t all kilted men in picturesque little fishing villages you know! Our larger cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow have a well-earned reputation as being world shopping centres, and very few places in the world can compare with the stunning architecture of our city streets while you search for the perfect souvenir to bring home from your Scottish tour. 

 

Indeed the main shopping street in Edinburgh is overlooked by the sublime beauty of Edinburgh Castle, while Glasgow's Buchanan street in the city centre commands the second-highest retail rent fees of anywhere in the UK for good reason.

Scottish film & TV

location tours

Whether it's the frankly gorgeous scenery used to outstanding effect in the Outlander tv series, or the instantly recognizable railway bridge so synonymous with the Hogwarts Express in Harry Potter, it is not difficult to understand why our dramatic and atmospheric landscapes so commonly feature in some of Hollywood’s biggest hits. 

 

If you are a fan of any of these series then make sure to let your driver know before you arrive and we will build it into your custom itinerary.

Don't just take

our word for it...

Our driver-guide was extraordinary with a wealth of knowledge and an easy-going, good-humored personality. Our guide knew all the secret spots to show you the real Scotland and it's glorious. I give my very highest rating and thanks for a tremendously enjoyable vacation.

We were in Europe for nearly five months and took several tours like this during our stay. This tour was by far the best, and Rosemary was by far the best guide we had. She was very friendly and informative and went out of her way to accommodate us. We highly recommend it!
