"I am delighted with my purchase of your Scenic Scotland 7 days tour, wish that I had found your website sooner. I would have saved many hours of uneducated web surfing and comparisons.

I truly believe that you have the right concept and offer a valuable service at a very reasonable cost."

Ensure Your Scotland Tour is a Holiday, NOT a Race!

The problem with planning a Scotland Tour using guidebooks and internet research is the lack of information on how to schedule your days.

Secret Scotland Tours provide you with distances and estimates of travel times between locations. So you can enjoy your holiday time and avoid the stress of rushing between places.

“The tours look great…Your site was hands down the best all round site I found during my search.”
Marisa Herring, New Braunfels, Texas, US

Frequent Updates

We live in Scotland, and constantly tour the country so that we can offer you a wealth of local knowledge for discovering Scotland.

Our guides are sent to you in an electronic format so, unlike printed guidebooks, we can update them whenever required. This means you can be confident that our information is up-to-date.

Experience More of Scotland

On holiday, how you get somewhere is as important as getting there.

For example, the A9 from Perth to Inverness is the obvious main road into the Highlands, but it bypasses some of Scotland’s prettiest villages. Should you follow the “crowd” on this road, you will also spend most of your trip looking at the back of a bus or lorry.

With a Secret Scotland Tour, you are directed along the quieter side roads that allow you to stop and take the time to explore more of the beauty of the country.

“Mike went out of his way to ensure I got the itinerary that suited us, including detailed driving instructions, things to see and do as well as a list of recommended accommodation.”

Scottish Hospitality to Look Forward To

With each Tour there is the option to buy the accompanying Accommodation Guide. The guides list carefully selected Bed and Breakfasts along the route of the tour.

This means you don’t have to take “Pot Luck” when choosing where to stay. You don’t have to pay a Travel Agent’s mark-up on accommodation booking and you avoid the reservation fees charged by the Tourist Information offices.

Honest Advice

Secret Scotland guides give recommendations that are based solely on merit.

Unlike some other internet guides, we do not feature attractions, restaurants or accommodation because they have paid for advertising space.

Our recommendations are based on personal experience and we only feature the places that we are confident you will enjoy.

“Stop for food at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar which was a Secret Scotland recommendation. OMG, was it yummy.”
