Calluna Tours takes its title from the Latin name Scottish Heather, Calluna, which covers much of the highlands and moorlands of Scotland, coming to a peak of flowering in August and September when the hills and mountains are a haze of pink and purple.
Mike, your driver guide, has a professional knowledge of wild flowers, trees and gardens as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the countryrside, farm and wild animals, and birds of Scotland. Visiting historical sites, including castles, palaces, battlefields, Pictish stones, Roman wall and fort sites, hill forts are Mike's hobby. Because of Scotland's relatively small size and long history, at least some of these can be found on every one of our tours. As indicated, each tour can be largely shaped to met your own specific needs and interests.
Additionally, booking us for your airport transfers (for details see our website), allows you the face to face opportunity to discuss any last minute changes you may wish to make to your proposed tour/s.
I look forward to hearing from you and to providing you with specific information to help make your holiday in Scotland truly memorable.
