Experience your favourite side of Scotland by stirring your passions on a guided themed tour, such as a whisky tour of the country’s fine distilleries, a historic castle tour, or enjoy your favourite activity on a walking or cycling holiday.


Special photography tours take you to stunning locations and are often led by local photographers and guides to help you get the very best shots with their advice and knowledge of the area. Some specialise in getting you up close to wildlife or to the heart of stunning landscapes to capture the perfect pictures and even hire out cameras for those who need them. Whether on a self-planned tour or with an organised group, or as an amateur photographer or a professional looking for inspiration, there are a range of options available.

Whisky tours

There are a great range of tours of distilleries in areas famed for their whisky, such as Perthshire, which is home to Scotland’s oldest distillery and Speyside, which is home to more than half of Scotland's malt whisky distilleries.

Castle Tours

Scotland has a rich history of clans, royalty and land battles, the legacy of which can still be seen today in the castles which dominate the landscape up and down the country. If you want to delve into the past lives of kings and queens, marvel at the architecture of these magnificent structures and even get a chance to stay in one, then a guided castle tour is a great way to explore Scotland.

Active tours

If you’re keen to go walking or cycling in Scotland, but not sure where to start, a tour is a great way to find your feet and explore the countryside. On a tour you can be safe in the knowledge that your guides are experts who can help you get the best out of your experience, whatever your level.

Motorcycle tours

See the country in style by touring on your motorbike and really feel part of the country’s dramatic landscape. If you’d like some help with your itinerary there are specialist tour companies who can provide self-tour guides, hired motorbikes, and even private guided tours. For those who fancy life in the fast lane, but want to be able to sit back and take in the view, why not try a chauffeured trike tour?
