Welcome to Scotland Tours

2014-09-06 15.26.21I established the company in 1997 to welcome international guests to Scotland and show visitors the best places to stay, to dine, and where to enjoy their favourite activities.

We take pride in showing you “our” Scotland.  Read on and start planning your next trip to Scotland.

Please click in the boxes that interest you. Don’t worry, no two enquiries are the same. If you want to mix and match different activities, or hotels styles, locations, theme etc. that is great.

Many of our clients move around the country spending 2 or 3 nights or longer in each area before moving on and they enjoy a variety of accommodations style and standards and of course each area has its specific strengths.

The Vacation of a Lifetime Awaits…..


We work with:

  • large groups, small groups of friends travelling together and small family groups
  • clients who wish to explore the country – the islands, the cities, the coastal villages, the mountains…
  • those who enjoy Scotch Whisky and may wish to visit the distillery where their favourite drink is distilled,
  • those who wish to participate in some great sports, including fishing, walking, horse racing, motor sports and of course golf. We are keen golfers ourselves and much of our business is arranging golf tours. Therefore, we have set up a separate golf site – click here to enter that web site and plan your golf tour
  • clients who wish to play golf on just one or two days of their trip – ask us to include some golf during your tour if you wish. Courses range from the famous championship course to excellent smaller and less expensive local courses that many enjoy. With over 600 courses to choose from we can always get you a game somewhere interesting.
  • people who like to have a choice of styles of accommodations. Many of our groups spend just 3 or 4 days in an area before moving on so can select different styles of accommodation. We can offer large resorts with amazing spas, luxury castles, country houses with charming architecture and outstanding food. You may prefer to rent your own house or cottage – many of these come with hot tubs and saunas, we have lots of elegant city centre hotels or hotels with amazing views over the sea or countryside to offer you. Visit the hotels section below for more information.
  • those who come to enjoy the various festivals and events. Each August, The Edinburgh International Festival and The Royal Tattoo take place. There are other food festivals, whisky festivals, golf events, soccer matches, horse racing meetings, motor sports, pop and rock concerts, to enjoy. We supply tickets to these and other events – ask for more details.
  • people who like visiting the sites of famous scenes in films and tv shows. Currently we get a lot of requests to visit places used in the filming of Outlander, Brave, Skyfall and Downton Abbey.

Please click on any of the boxes to the right for more details on what you wish included in your trip.

If you are not sure, and want us to design a trip for you, that is something that often occurs. Just give us a few ideas about what your interests are, what style of accommodations you prefer, the size of your group, and we can take it from there.

Please complete the enquiry form and give us details about your group and what activities etc. you wish us to include in your tour.

We prefer to phone you to talk through any issues that we think are necessary before emailing your Suggested Itinerary to you, and after you have read it, make any adjustments that are required to ensure the tour meets with everyone’s approval.

Scotland is a great destination. Come and see, enjoy the hotels, the activities, and our food and I’m sure you will choose to return on a regular basis when you see how easy it is to have a great time.

Our mission is to do everything possible to make sure you are in the right hotel, enjoying the right service and high standards we provide to all our international guests. We know you can choose to go anywhere in the world and we want to show you why Scotland is right at the top of so many people’s “must see” list.

Thanks for taking time to read this and I hope to be meeting you on arrival in Scotland very soon.

“I cannot recommend Scotland Tours strongly enough to anyone seeking a custom tour in the United Kingdom. They are extremely capable, utterly reliable and a joy to work with. There is no reason to look elsewhere for these services.

I wanted to write this review because I wish someone had written it for me when I was planning my trip. It would have spared me some anxiety.

“Hi Lindsay

We are at the airport ready to return home. We have had the most fantastic time. Everyone was so gracious and pleasant to deal with. Your hotel destinations were the best. The golf was amazing and the sightseeing was beyond our expectations.

We can’t thank you enough for planning our dream vacation. We would highly recommend your agency to everyone. We are sad to leave but have lots of pictures to remember this trip.

Again many thanks and maybe we will come back again!!”

Hi Lindsay

I do want to tell you that we had a fabulous time in Scotland. Your tour services were excellent. Ronnie and Carole could not have been nicer to us or more helpful. Adrian was also a delight.

We felt like our trip was charmed. Everything worked out very well for us with the added bonus of a fancy car. Sinclair was a great guide. I would definitely recommend him as a resource for other people.

Thanks for all your help planning the trip of a lifetime for my daughter and I.

I just want to thank you so much for all your help with the booking process. It was an amazing time and my whole family loved it.

Also thank you for your patience and help with all the last minute questions leading up to the trip 🙂

You’re the best!

Thanks again,

We’re back in safe and sound in San Francisco. We had a really marvellous time, from beginning to end. We appreciate all your hard work, particularly in helping to get us switched from Campbeltown to Glasgow.

We all left Scotland hoping it was only the first of many visits, so on our next return we’ll contact you to make arrangements 🙂

The itinerary was pretty much perfect, the places you sent us were a mix of cultures which we enjoyed and looking back, I wouldn’t have wanted to do it any other way.

The entire trip was fabulous. I think that what we got for what we paid made the value well worth it. I would not hesitate to do it again with you, Ronnie and the staff at Scotland Tours.

Great job and hopefully, we’ll be working together again in the future.

Dear Lindsay,

We had a great time in Scotland and all wish we could come back again. It was a trip of a lifetime. The biggest problem is that time went by way to fast. It seemed like we had just landed when it was time to go home again.

Thank you for everything that you did to make our trip great. We will gladly recommend you to anyone who wants to visit Scotland.

Teri (June 2015)
Our Scotland tour was a fantastic experience for the whole group, we enjoyed the great program, hotels and meals, all people we met were very friendly.

We think it was really nice you welcomed us at the airport and the drivers were so well informed. The hotels were good and they were well informed about our arrival and dinners as well.

On top the sun was shining every single day during our trip. It couldn’t have been better!

Hi Lindsay! …And Ronnie and Carole!, I want to thank you again! We had a lovely time in Scotland on the Kincaid Tour! Thanks for your hard work to assist in making it happen.

Hoping you have a continued successful season! Your arrangements created a beautiful and lasting “trip of a lifetime” to our “home of the Kincaids”!

We had the best trip ever! When we signed up for the trip we were looking for a chance to visit Scotland and see it for the first time.

But we had no idea what a deluxe and all-encompassing trip we were in store for. We enjoyed every single aspect and felt that Scotland Tours did a wonderful job of personalizing it.

We thank you all and will not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends and relatives.

With kindest regards
