          Keith put up with our family of 20 for 10 days and I have nothing but good things to say about it!! He is the absolute best! We were taken all over the country and were blessed with so many wonderful experiences. There are not enough words to describe how much I loved this trip! Thank you Keith!!

          Wonderful tour, Keith our guide was wonderful. He went above and beyond making sure we were comfortable and saw as much of this beautiful country as possible. Not only that he is very learned in the history of everywhere we went. Thankyou, to Keith and Scotland's Highland Tours for the wonderful trip.

          Amazing trip!
          Had a fantastic experience with our guide, Regan, who was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable throughout the tour. A highlight of the tour was the Jacobite Train, which Regan was able to help us secure tickets after our original tickets were cancelled. And, of course, the other activities on the trip were great; a personal favorite was the walk along the Fairy Pools. Overall, I cannot recommend this tour enough!

          Family Vacation
          An experience of a lifetime that our family of 7 will never forget. Regan shuttled us all over and did it with a smile. When things went wrong (emergency room, cancellations), he made calls and made them right again. In our family, Regan, YOU ROCK!!

          Amazing time visiting Skye, and the Highlands!
          We had an amazing time with Regan of Scotland's Highland Tours. He was extremely accomodating for all of our needs!! He was also able to pull a few miracles, especially when my son had to spend time in the emergency room.

          Trip of a lifetime! My heart is in the Highlands!
          We had the pleasure of being guided through the highlands by Mr. Angus MacLean. Gus was amazing. He completely tailored our trip to our personal tastes by listening and learning about us through conversation. Gus was very professional and courteous, always making sure we were comfortable and content. When we had an issue with a fishing charter that we had booked through another company and they cancelled our trip at the last minute, Gus immediately sourced out another company and had us on the water that afternoon. He went beyond anything that we could have ever expected and made our experience in Scotland very special. Gus made us feel like family throughout our entire tour. Easily a 15/10 rating!!!

          Beyond expectation
          We had a wonderful time during our tour. Despite bad weather one out of two days, Regan made every moment worth it. He went above and beyond to ensure maximizing our experience and ensure our comfort. I would highly recommend Scotland's Highland tours and Regan for their hospitality.

          Awesome Tour Experience 10/10
          We had a great experience going around Scotland with Scotland Highland Tours. We were assisted by Mr Regan Francis, he was great with the way he planned our day and went out of the way to make our tour fun and enjoyable. We were on a girls trip and he made it safe and best for us. 10/10 to the tour company.

          Trip of a lifetime!
          This was the trip of a lifetime, and it’s hard to find words sufficient enough to express my gratitude to Catherine and Gus for this amazing experience. Catherine was wonderful to work with; she listened to what we were looking for, made suggestions, and ultimately created a perfect itinerary specifically tailored to our needs and interests. Her intimate knowledge of Skye and the Highlands, beyond just the major tourist attractions, made all the difference. Our tour guide Gus was incredible; he is an expert historian with an encyclopedic memory for Scottish history and area lore. He knew shortcuts to popular sites, the best spots to stop for lunch, hidden viewpoints and historic sites not listed in the tourist guides. Most importantly, he was able to navigate the difficult, single track roads smoothly and safely, which allowed us to relax and enjoy the scenery stress free. We were able to see and do much more than we could have ever done on our own. And when a last minute ferry cancelation impacted one day of our tour, Catherine and Gus worked together to provide an alternative route filled with interesting sites that were equally enjoyable. We will be forever grateful to Catherine and Gus for providing us with such an incredible experience!

          Learning about Scotland
          3 of us were with Keith for 2 days and had a wonderful time touring Scotland. He knew we were Harry Potter fans but also wanted to learn the history (legends) of the area and he put together a wonderful tour for us. We also loved that he figured out a fun place for us to listen to live music in Inverness each night. We highly recommend working with Keith and Catherine to set up a tour!

          Trip of a Lifetime
          Catherine and Keith provide their clients with the highest quality tours. They work with you to insure that you are getting the tour you want! Catherine goes above and beyond and booked reservations at restaurants for our party. The establishments she chose were perfect to our requests. Keith additionally goes the extra mile to provide clients with a memorable tour. He was punctual every morning picking us up at our place of lodging with a clean and comfortable vehicle. Keith always looked out for our safety and well being which meant a lot while on holiday. Keith answered my endless questions about Scotland with patience and provided great stories and insights about the sites we saw. Conversations were lively and fun. He shared that if there was a place we wanted to stop and see to just ask. Keith wore a kilt which adds a flair of authenticity to the Scotland experience. I highly recommend Scottish Highland Tours for your trip to see and experience the beautiful Highlands and taste Scotland hospitality at its finest! Catherine and Keith thank you for an amazing adventure of a lifetime. It was beyond words especially Glen Coe and Great Glen. My heart will always be in the Highlands.

        My family and I (4 of us total, with two younger kids) had the time of our life on a full day trip tour to Isle of Skye and everything in between with our driver, Keith. Keith was warm, smart, funny, and engaging. Keith would talk to us about everything and anything and has such an appreciation for the rich history that surrounds him. Keith kept our kids involved and was an expert at giving advice on how to get the most out of each stop. When we were looking for the perfect trip to visit Isle of Skye, we looked at every tour and considered the pros and cons. I can confidently say that we would return and do this tour again the very same way and with the same driver. We got exactly what we wanted and had VIP service the entire day.

        A great day out for two of us on the Isle of Skye day tour with Keith ( good start - a namesake). Nothing was too much trouble and even the occasional heavy shower didn't dampen our enthusiasm. Set out at 9am and back around 7pm so a very full day taking in the sights including Loch Ness. Multiple stops for photos, lunch and the inevitable look around shops for Annie in Portree then on up to Kilt Rock where it was raining and blowing a gale! Tour guide Keith was extremely good, friendly and helpful and we will certainly recommend Highland Tours to friends who may be visiting the area.

        Keith is an amazing guide. Prompt, knowledgeable, funny, courteous, and flexible. We have learned to trust the guides and not the cab drivers/friend who has been there one day. He was interested in what we told him and asked us great questions. The conversation was lovely and the silences were not awkward. He stopped at great views and would have stopped more if we asked. He showed us the highland coos (cows), kilt rock, Old Man of Storr, Portree and the HandSpinner wool yarn shop. He listened to the things we liked and was looking for and recommended this beautiful local shop. If you are more interested in breweries or hikes he knows the best ones to do. His car was clean and comfortable. All of the seats in the rear recline and all of us in the back fell asleep. We were not a full car and our luggage was able to travel with us. He stopped at a quaint lunch joint before Portree so we didn't have to spend a lot of time waiting to eat. I would recommend him any time and any where in Scotland. He even helped us to book a dinner where locals eat. We had a lovely dinner and made our train! The kilt was just the icing on the cake. Slàinte Mhath and happy travels!

        The trip was amazing and the guide (Keith) knew where to take us and great spots to see. The travelling was very good as the car was very comfortable and big. Thought the tour Keith adapted to us completely, staying longer in places that we wanted to explore in more detail while spending less time in other which were of less interest to us. He told interesting facts about the places we went which helps us get a better understanding. Furthermore, just chatting with him about different topics was very fun!

        We had an inconvenience with my cousin (5 years old) as he started to feel unwell. Despite this, Keith ensured he was okay and stopped whenever it was necessary to ensure his well-being. This was great as a group tour would not have taken us into account and ignored the situation.

        Overall the tour was beautiful and amazing. Our guide was the best, as a guide and person. I highly recommend doing the trip with them as the kindness, comfort and constant interest is not achieved any other way.

        Thank you for everything Keith! Keep it up!

        I thought I knew what we were going to see (The Old Man Storr, Kilt Rock, The Quirang), but our guide absolutely surpassed my expectations!

        Ken took care of my family of five so well, which included a 72 y/o matriarch and a 6 y/o son. He was very attentive and took extra means to ensure everyone was comfortable on the journey.

        Ken was also very knowledgeable about the highlands, from geography to botany to pop culture. It was amazing how much information he was able to share to keep us entertained.

        He knew what to point out and what made for the best photo ops. We will all have fond memories of our visit to Inverness and Skye because of what an amazing guide Ken was. Would definitely recommend to others!!!

        What a wonderful trip to Skye and the Scottish Highlands. This was the best tour my Sisters and I went on during our stay in Inverness. Catherine was wonderful helping us plan our tour. Our guide was Keith, who was an excellent driver as well as a wonderful guide who had a great sense of humor. Keith kept us well informed of the history and stories behind the places we visited. He even went above and beyond, helping us procure reservations for our evening dinner and a wee drop of Scottish whiskey!
        He also helped arrange our last day in Inverness with a wonderful driver.
        Michelle was our sweet, competent driver and guide to Culloden Battlefield and Outlander’s Craigh Na Dun Stones ( complete with picture props) then on to the airport. Outstanding! Tapadh leat gu mo’r Keith

        Our private tour of the Isle of Skye was better than what we could have imagined. John Sehar our guide showed us parts of the Isle not seen by preplanned tours, just as we asked.
        John was kind and considerate of our party with our safety and comfort always in mind.
        Also showing us parts of Inverness and how to navigate a city unfamiliar to us.
        Thank you John, for making our trip to Inverness the best of our memories.

        Our tut was two nights and three days. Gerry was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable, funny and catered to all our needs. We had a great group of about 16 people. He dropped us each off at our BB and let us know about the area. We traveled over the mountains in crazy one lane B roads but with his driving felt very safe.
