New wheels

Andrew

Here’s the first glimpse of our new wheels!

As well as our trusty, all-wheel-drive Subaru Outback which gets us around off the beaten track in great style, we now have a brand new 8 seater Minibus.

It is also stylish – a Mercedes Vito Tourer with a smooth 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox, turbocharged engine, comfort suspension and comfort leatherette seats. This all makes for an incredibly smooth and quiet ride.

We picked up the van last week; I drove it up from London, so it has 600 miles on the clock and is not at all clean! It is sat on the drive covered in snow right now, waiting to be cleaned.

We are looking forward to taking groups of up to six on tour with us around Scotland and The Highlands in the Vito. Here’s a couple of snaps, not at all good quality – from my phone:

New Highland Tours for 2018 plus Outlander Tours

Andrew

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog over the summer as we’ve been busy finalising and delivering our new Outlander themed tours. If you are a big fan of Diana Gabaldon, her books and/or the STARZ Outlander TV series (Amazon Prime/Channel 4 in the UK) then check out our sister website Outlander: The Past Lives Experience for some amazing Outlander tours. We’re also working on a range of New Highland Tours for 2018 – these will be modular, off-the-peg tours, which you can mix and match to create a totally unique private Highland Tour experience.

Highland-ToursTake a look at our Private Scottish Highland Tours page for more details and options. These private tours are available for couples, or for larger groups of up to 6 people (plus the two of us).

The new Highland Tours include: the Jacobites; the Great Glen; Castles, Brochs; Standing Stones; History, Heritage and Archaeology; The Picts; Wildlife & Natural History Tours; Whisky & Distilleries; Skye; the North Coast 500 and more…

From 2018, we are also offering tours based on the history and ancestry of Highland Clans.
