" Spending a few days in Edinburgh we contacted Great Scottish Tours for a day tour, came highly recommended. They were excellent in communicating all relevant information, reassuring us of the planned tour. The plans changed throughout the day as we started to discuss potential interests that would be more suited to us, the driver could not have been more flexible in accommodating all our requests. Later in the day we had planned to stop for a bite of lunch, the driver had actually brought a lunch for us which we ate in style overlooking the bridges, pure magical. The van was luxurious throughout, all mod cons and super comfortable, including a charger cable for my camera. The guide was local so we benefited from the wealth of knowledge which he shared throughout the day, the history of the city and surrounding area. The day was utterly exquisite, from beginning to end and one I will remember for a very long time. If ever in this part of the world again, I will not hesitate to contact Great Scottish Tours and will be raving to all my friends and family."
"We have just retuned from a fantastic 17 day holiday touring West Scotland and some of the Weston Isles. The tour incorporated 11 days with Great Scottish Tours (GST) owned and run by Greame plus 6 nights cruise with The Majestic Line out of Oban covering the
Southern Hebrides. We asked Greame to recommend and design a private tour of western Scotland that incorporated the already booked cruise. He did this with his great knowledge and in great detail for our approval. It consisted of travelling from Perth to West Scotland and on to Fort William for a trip on the Jacobite Express of Harry Potter fame. We then moved onto the Isle of Skye before returning to Oban via the iconic Glenfinnan viaduct to see the Jacobite express pass over.
After the cruise Greame met us at Oban to continue our tour to the Isle of Mull for our final two day’s.
During our trip with Greame we saw fantastic scenery, great historical places and tremendous wildlife including white tailed eagles, golden eagles, otters, deer and many other land and sea birds. It is almost impossible to pick a special moment as there were so
many but the last evening in Mull sitting on a deserted beach being served with fresh mussels in the vehicle, cooked and prepared by Graeme( a corporate chef) will always be remembered. Greame is an excellent host and has a vast knowledge of Scotland, its history and wildlife,. He is extremely accommodating and makes you feel very safe and secure on the tour and booked all aspects of our tour. His purpose built vehicle is extremely comfortable built to his own design for touring and preparing and serving meals.
We cannot recommend Greame and BST enough; we had a great tour and were made to feel welcome and special at all times. Already planning our next trip with Greame and GST."

"We cannot recommend Graeme and Great Scottish Tours enough!!
Fiona worked with me one-on-one for months helping our family design a custom tour of the Loch
Lomond/Trossachs region, including last minute changes made after our arrival to Scotland.
Graeme was an absolutely treasure and made our day tour perfect from start to finish! Arriving in a
gorgeous, spacious and comfortable tour vehicle wearing a kilt, stocked with a sumptuous lunch
(including a delectable homemade lemon tart), snacks, and plenty of drinks (waters and Cokes, plus wine for lunch!)
he went out of his way to make our trip absolutely perfect!
He also made the point tomake a little stops for scenic photographs along with
way the entire day, explaining so much about Scotland as a whole as well as the region we were in
(he has a keen eye for birds, too). He took photographs and videos for us, Fiona & Greame followed up with us
upon our return and overall we were made us feel comfortable and well-taken care of during the entire experience.
If you want to truly experience Scotland, you MUST book a tour with Great Scottish Tours!"
