January — December

Heather-clad mountains, tumbling rivers, ancient castles and breathtaking coastline form the backdrop to the Heart of Speyside. Trace layers of history and experience present-day Speyside with a tour tailored to your interests.

Discover lands that have been a kingdom twice over, ruled by the ancient Picts and later by Macbeth. Lands that have been fought over, from the Romans to the last days of the Jacobite cause. Castles a-plenty tell of a turbulent history, some poignant ruins, some now elegant family homes open to the public. Add a touch of Outlander off the beaten track with authentic historic locations. Perhaps glimpse some of our wildlife, from dinosaur footprints to dolphins, red squirrels and birds of prey.   Explore the rich heritage of the coastal fishing communities, or combine castles, cathedral and cashmere.

As with all our tours, the Heart of Speyside can be tailored to your particular interests – that’s the beauty of Speyside! As a local and a professionally trained guide I'll share my Speyside with you.
