Private Scottish Highland Tours

Our Highland ToursWelcome to our Highland Tours page.

The Highlands of Scotland has so much to offer. Indeed, in September 2017, Scotland was named Rough Guides #1 Tour Destination, worldwide!!

We are very happy to create a customised private tour for you, based on your specific interests and desires. However, to keep things simple and make it easy to book, we also have popular and well-researched off-the-shelf private tours available to book at a time that suits you.

Currently, our off the shelf tours are based around our Outlander Tours, which you can also find on our other website: Outlander: The Past Lives Experience. You can also see an overview of our Outlander Tours on this page, plus links to our Outlander Tour Galleries showing photographs of the many stunning Outlander locations from Diana Gabaldon’s books and from the popular STARZ Outlander TV series.

Over the coming months (from September 2017), we will be creating a range of ‘off the peg’ Highland Tours that will be available to book for the 2018 season. These will also be available as mix’n’match tour modules, so that you can quickly and easily create your dream Highland Tour vacation. Additionally, we can recommend specific events which could compliment your tour, such as specific Highland Games, Food Festivals and other annual celebrations of Highland culture.

Finally, we are also creating a range of Clan Highland Tours (listed below) based on the popular Highland Clans. Review the lists below and then click on the links to find more information about tour module.

*  Note: Clan Chattan is not now a Clan in the usual sense, but a group of Highland Clans that originally collaborated for mutual benefit and security – whilst maintaining their independence. Originally a separate (as usual) Clan in the early 14th century, the clan then formed the Chattan Confederation, headed by the chief of Clan Mackintosh.  The Confedaration grew to include 17 Clans; today the principal Clans are: Davidson, Farquharson, MacBean, MacGillivray, MacIntyres (in Badenoch), Mackintosh, Maclean of Dochgarroch, MacPhail, Macpherson, MacQueens of Strathdearn, Shaw and MacThomas.
