Allow me to introduce myself and my company – About Scotland Tours.
My name is Ricky Henderson, a proud native Scot, born and bred in the west end of Glasgow. When I set up About Scotland Tours in 2010, it was with the sole purpose of providing our guests with a more flexible, relaxed and fun experience. We do not stick to rigid timetables like large coach tours, which gives our guests more time to explore Scotland’s historic castles, ancient Neolithic sights and wee hidden gems.
For as long as I can remember ( around 30 years or so ) I have had a real passion for my country Scotland, learning our diverse cultures, ancient history and exploring the natural beauty of our spectacular landscapes and rugged mountain glens. I want to share it with you and introduce you to the very best of Scotland, you wouldn’t get to see with rigid bus tours.
What sets us apart from other Scotland tour companies is our ability to deliver high quality memorable tours to our clients using our individuality and years of knowledge to create a tailor-made unique tour based on our clients personal preferences. That’s why we have guests returning to us year after year, quite often with extended families and most of whom have became friends.
So whether its medieval castles, ancient Neolithic monuments, enjoying a romantic meal at one of our world renowned seafood restaurants or perhaps enjoying a tour at one of Scotland’s iconic whisky distilleries, we will happily customize an itinerary based around your requirements and ensure the best possible experience during your visit to Scotland.
Guides – All of our friendly knowledgeable driver/guides have a wealth of experience of touring the highlands and islands of Scotland. They will introduce you to those wee hidden gems and travel along the back roads away from large crowds whenever possible. Your guide will look after every aspect of your requirements during the tour from recommending great wee places for lunch, to the very best restaurants to visit in the evenings. Plus, you will also have the peace of mind in knowing your guide is always close by and available 24 hours a day should you need to contact him/her in the evenings whilst on tour.
Vehicles- At the moment we operate two luxury Mercedes mini coaches catering for small groups of up to 8 passengers giving you that more personal touch. Capacity for both vehicles consists of a 6 passenger Mercedes Viano extra long wheel base for maximum comfort and extra leg room. Our new addition to the fleet a fully converted top of the range 8 passenger Mercedes Sprinter mini bus. Ideal for large family groups, golf and whisky parties.
