My wife and I traveled for four days with K Thompson in late June 2016 and had a fabulous time! We started in the Inverness area and also spent 2 full days on the Isle of Skye. K is very flexible. He initially designed our itinerary based on advance email communications but then made some great changes and additions to... More

My wife and I have traveled extensively and know that having a local guide take you around greatly enhances the experience and is well worth the expense. We arranged for K. Thomson to guide us around the northeast Scotland for three days, after reading Tripadvisor reviews. K is an amazing guide and an amazing person. He speaks five languages, has... More

Our first trip to Scotland. Spent three days touring with K. He made all arrangements for trains and accommodations. Saw many things not in the guide books. He was a wealth of knowledge. Could have never seen so much by ourselves. Would definitely recommend and would use K again on our next trip.

K. Thomson arrived in full Scottish attire. It was great. He took us on a real people tour. Walked around towns and meet the real people. He took us to off the beaten path places. We just loved it. Got to see people working their sheep, climbed mountains got to go to a peet bog. It was all so fascinating.... More

My husband and I and our two teenage daughters spent 2 days with K, visiting Culloden battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Clava Cairns, Foyers Falls, and all along the Great Glen to Glenfinnan, and much more beside. We got to see far more than we could ever have fitted in by ourselves had we even known of many of the places that... More

My wife and I hired K for two days and are so glad that we did. He showed us an amazing variety of interesting places, both natural and historical and readily took us to see anything that we were interested in. He has a deep knowledge that he enthusiastically shares. It was also great for us not having to learn... More

My husband arrived in Inverness on the Princess British Isles cruise. We had not arranged for a cruise tour and walked off the boat and were met by K. He agreed to take us and another group around for the day. We had a wonderful time. We were able to see sights that the big "coaches" could not reach. I... More

We booked the Scottish Tours visit to 'John O'Groats and the Far North on-line before travelling to Scotland. It was a good idea. A great day out if you are based in Inverness is to John O’Groats at the tip of the mainland of Britain. There is a 10 hour, full-day trip, at a cost of £49 from Inverness to... More
