Scotland Tours & Holidays

Misty highlands, sparkling lochs and rolling hills – there is a reason Scotland is known for its natural beauty. 

But it’s not all just deserted moors and moss-covered forests (although there are plenty of those too!), Scotland’s rich history and culture are also a big drawcard. From exploring the medieval city of Edinburgh, to the lively fun of a traditional pub where many a wee whisky can be enjoyed, there are plenty of opportunities to experience the hospitality of the local Scots beyond the clichés of kilts and bagpipes. Discovering areas like the enchanting Scottish Highlands, the modern hub of Glasgow and the wilderness of the Isle of Skye, all with the inside knowledge of a local leader is an entirely unique experience.

Scotland's Orkney Islands

Janet · Traveled June 2024
Had a great time in Orkney. Kirkwall has a great museum and a beautiful cathedral. The Neolithic sites are a must, our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was fun to be part of a small group , our guide was very patient and very helpful with his local knowledge. At the end of the day we always had a lovely meal sampling the local food and drink.

What a great way to learn about Scotland and the Highlands. The pace of activities was just right, the scenery and walks were beautiful. This was our third Intrepid trip; all three guides have been wonderful.
