Tour Ideas

Here are a few ideas for great tours around Edinburgh and Scotland. This is by no means a definitive list, and I would be delighted to tailor tours to your wishes.

Edinburgh City Tour – ½ day or full day.

Bring this majestic and historic city to life with a combination of panoramic and walking tour as you require. Let us know of any special interests and we can incorporate this in to the tour.

Edinburgh and Beyond – full day tour.

Enjoy a city tour, then pick from one of the many visitor attractions nearby to make the most of your visit to this city. Castles, distilleries, delightful villages, grand country mansions, sport, walking – a whole host of options!

Glasgow City Tour – full day tour.

Visit Scotland's largest and liveliest city. Learn how the city has evolved from a medieval cathedral town to a hugely successful cultural and arts centre and Scotland’s top destination for shopping and nightlife. Highlights include a panaromic tour, a walking tour of old Glasgow, a visit of Glasgow Cathedral and a choice of guided visitor attractions including museums, galleries and more.

Rosslyn Chapel and the Lothians – full day tour.

Discover the truth behind this legendary building, a beautiful hidden gem recently popularised by 'The Da Vinci Code'. Continue on to Glenkinchie Distillery for a show-round and a taste of Scotland’s amber liquid before heading to the coastal region of East Lothian. Enjoy a stop at Gullane or North Berwick and explore this area as you choose - golf, wildlife or castles.

Stirling and the Trossachs

Head to the historical heart of Scotland and visit Stirling, the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’. Explore the town and visit the majestic Stirling Castle before driving through the stunning Trossachs hills and glens where you will get a taste of our famous Highland scenery. Enjoy an optional relaxing boat trip on Loch Katrine. Learn about some of the area’s legendary heroes including Robert the Bruce, William Wallace (‘Braveheart’) and Rob Roy.

The Kingdom of Fife and St Andrews

Cross the landmark Forth Bridges into the Kingdom of Fife, an area of Scotland with an immensely rich cultural tapestry of royal connections, dramatic history, stunning coastline and of course, golf. Visit Falkland Palace, childhood favourite of Mary Queen of Scots, before heading to St Andrews.

Universally known as the home of golf, this medieval market town is also home to Scotland's oldest university, medieval cathedral and award winning beaches. Stop off for fish and chips whilst visiting the charming fishing villages of the East Neuk, “Fife's fringe of gold”.

Border Abbeys and Castles

South of Edinburgh lie the beautiful rolling hills of the Scottish Borders. Packed full of history, we let ancient abbeys, grand country mansions, medieval towerhouses, and pre-historic sites tell of the area’s turbulent past. This day can include several fantastic and diverse visitor attractions including perhaps Melrose Abbey (burial place of the heart of King Robert the Bruce), Abbotsford House (country home of Sir Walter Scott packed full of his amazing collections) or Traquhair house where we can enjoy a home-brew at Scotland’s oldest inhabited home. For keen walkers, we can go a bit off the beaten track!
