See Scotland with Local Eyes! All our tours are led by local guides who live in (or are from) the places we visit on tour, so if you're looking for an authentic experience of Scotland, you're in the right place! Local Eyes was started in 2013 by Chris Walker because he wanted to share his hometown with the world. Now, in 2018, we are a small group of excellent guides who all want to show you where we come from, and why we love Scotland. We offer a range of tours in and around Edinburgh and the Highlands. All our tours are private and we aim to customise them to best suit your needs.
