Emmerse yourself in the very best of Scotland's diverse culture, ancient history and breath-taking scenery with your very own private kilted driver/guide.


My name is Ricky Henderson Scottish tour guide specialising in small private group tours with over 20 years experience of touring the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. When I set up AboutScotland Private Tours it was with the sole purpose of providing the very best private guided tours for my guests, and recognising the importance of offering you a truly unique experience when travelling to the natural beauty of the Highlands and Hebridean islands. I pride myself in the ability to devise flexible, relaxed and informative tours to suit your preferences, and take you to those wee hidden gems you would not see with large coach tours. At AboutScotland, we always like to travel along the back roads away from large tour crowds and introduce you to the history and highlights of my country along the way. Including medieval castles, spectacular scenery, diverse cultures and colourful history. I will happily devise any length of tour from a 1-day tour, to 1, 2 or 3 weeks. And recommend tours to some of the most amazing, scenic and awe-inspiring places to rival anywhere in the world. Oh! and not to mention travelling in comfort and total flexibility with your own professional and very knowledgeable kilted driver guide/s.

Please check out some of my suggested tours from Glasgow and Edinburgh, including all of the photos which I have personally taking myself over the years. However if you have a specific itinerary or want to explore a specific area. I will gladly customise a private tour for you based on your wish-list and preferences. I can also customise a tour to some of Scotland's other popular tours including. Outlander Tours, Golf Trips, Shore Excursions, Movie Locations, and Ancestral Tours. You shall also have the peace of mind in knowing you will be travelling in complete comfort and luxury in your very own top of the range vehicles, including a Mercedes MPV ( maximum 6 seats) and our fully customised luxury Mercedes Mini-Coach. ( maximum 8 seats). ( Please click on any of the links to view vehicles)

Planning your trip. Over the years I have accumulated a list of excellent accommodation i can recommend to suit your budget and preferences. From small family run hotels and guest houses. To luxury converted 18th & 19th-century hunting lodges and medieval castles. So whether you want to experience an overnight stay in a picturesque fishing village or a beautiful highland town. Or perhaps you prefer a more secluded location miles from the nearest village, where the only sound you'll hear at night as you wander along the seashore are nesting seabirds and local wildlife. I can also recommend some fantastic local seafood restaurants and traditional inns for lunch or dinner.
