The experience will be customised for you and the Airbnb price will be adjusted accordingly for the day of your booking.

The advantage of a private tour opposed to a tourist bus is having the flexibility of personalising your tour with the privacy of your own vehicle and driver guide. My custom tours cover the whole of Scotland, with single- and multi-day options in my spacious minibus (7 people). My aim is not only to deliver important facts, but to entertain with tales of Scotland and provide you with as full and authentic an experience of Scotland as possible. In addition to Scotland’s best-known sites, you will also access off the beaten track areas and unique locations that only an experienced local guide would know!

I cover all of Scotland’s areas of interest incl, sites of outstanding natural beauty, castles and history, movie filming locations, whisky distilleries, hiking and much more. I have a range of tour itineraries and packages to suit all tastes and for every type of traveller, so please get in touch to discuss your guided Scotland tour!

An enthusiastic lover of nature, history and all things Scottish, I have been a professional Scotland tour guide since 2015 for some of Scotland's leading hotels. Born, bred and lived in Scotland most of my life, I entered into tour guiding after University graduation with a desire to explore my country and it's exquisite nature, captivating history and rich culture. Scotland tour guiding is my passion; I love interacting and making friends with people from all over the world. Scotland is a truly fascinating and beautiful place and I relish being able to share my knowledge on Scotland's nature, history and culture with others and to leave you, by the end of your tour with a real sense of Scotland.

Louis was very accommodating to our wishes, while at the same time making suggestions that improved our experience. I love that he took us to local shops for unique food and products, supporting the local economy of the area. I highly recommend Louis for anyone wanting a private tour!

Our experience with Louis was beyond incredible. There is no better way to learn about and discover unique sites in Scotland than with a private tour guide, and Louis really impressed us with the passion and knowledge that he has for all things Scottish. He personalized the experience around some special requests that we had, and then filled out the day with his own special recommendations. We captured some truly breathtaking photos that will help us remember our trip for many years to come! I highly recommend Louis!

You can’t go wrong with this experience. Louis is a charming host for a 12 hour tour. He listens to what experiences you want and bases your tour around that. Very personalized. His van is very nice and very, very cleaned. We hoped we tipped him enough to clean up after our messy crowd. But we were trying to stay as neat as possible for him. Promise. 😊 Thank you Louis! We left Scotland early due to Trump announcement. But we want to come back to revisit the places you took us. We were so impressed.

Persona molto simpatica, preparato ed esperto che ha saputo rendere leggera una gita di molte ore. Consigliato per conoscenza sia storica che dei luoghi.

5 jours à Edimbourg, fantastique malgré un temps "scottish". Une journée découverte dans le pays a été une magnifique expérience pour un premier séjour en Ecosse. Cela permet réellement de réaliser la variétés des paysages, des cultures, et l'histoire de ce pays. Je ne peux que le recommander, et de surcroît le rapport qualité-prix, en vaut la chandelle. Louis est un guide hors pair, passionné par son travail, et clairement ambassadeur de son pays.

Louis was wonderful. We were able to customize the itinerary to our own liking which definitely added to the magic of the experience. He was able to work around what we wanted to see and adapt the tour as we went as well based on weather and timing. We booked a private tour for just my partner and myself for 12 hours. We viewed all the highlights we were keen on visiting based on our own custom liking. His knowledge of Scotland is incredibly entertaining and in-depth. We were even able to do a tour of Oban, along with seeing all the other magnificent sites the lowlands and highlands have to offer! Deer, sheep, and the hairy cows too! Even with the ever-changing extreme weather we were facing with storms, Louis made us feel safe with his driving as well. I have awful motion-sickness and I was fine the entire trip due to the frequent stops and the smooth driving. Even with the snow, hail, rain, and sunshine, he was able to drive through it all without any sense of irritability or impending danger. Louis was prompt in arriving, kept things moving on time, picked great restaurants, and rest stops that felt very natural. He even had extra blankets and snacks waiting in the vehicle when he arrived. We will 100% use him again when we want to do a deeper extensive dive into the islands and Skye! We're recommending him to all our friends and family that come to Scotland!
