ITINERARIES

The 2.5 km. (1.5 mile) Forth Railway Bridge, the world’s first major steel bridge, with its gigantic girder spans of 521 m. (1710 ft.) ranks as one of the great feats of civilisation. It was begun in 1883 and formally completed on 4 March 1890 when it was opened by HRH Edward Prince of Wales

AD HOC

You choose the highlights and

I will build an itinerary to suit.

My aim is to provide a memorable experience and to let you explore places rarely visited by tourists , in addition to the famous, iconic sights such as Loch Lomond, Loch Ness and Stirling Castle.


Tours can be custom-made according to your interests and budget;  flexibility is a keynote so you can select different aspects of these suggested themed tours which can be combined or added to as you wish.


    Literary tours to places connected with Burns, Walter  Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson


    In the footsteps of Boswell and Johnson (‘Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides’ 1773)


    Robert Adam’s magnificent country houses: Culzean, Arniston, Hopetoun


    Art tours, including museums specialising in Scottish artists from Henry Raeburn up to the Scottish Colourists

    and the 20th century.


    Remote churches with painted ceilings or the great 12th century Border Abbeys


    Abandoned Crofting townships in Skye and Ardnamurchan


    Mysterious Pictish slabs; the prehistoric sites of Kilmartin Glen


    Of course, loch cruises, hills, glens and whisky distilleries can be added to any tour.
