Tales & legends of the Highland Clans on our Highland Tours

The Scottish Clan system starts to be dismantled in the middle of the 18th Century by the British Government & King George II following the final Jacobite rebellion of 1745.

The Highland clearances follow, and the subsequent forced migration of Scots throughout the world is one of many reasons why Scotland is a destination for so many.

Scotland has been voted one of the best destinations in the world by Rough Guide.

It’s been my dream to visit Scotland, and Niall McOwan of Scottish Guided Tours made this the trip of my lifetime. He took wonderful care of us for five days; he created so many wonderful experiences for us - I’ll never forget it - we took his Outlander Tour - as a Scot, he is a wealth of Scots history, plus - he knows Outlander the show. We missed him terribly when it was over. Ten stars!

Eddie, our most professional, congenial guide, was excellent. Our four days with him were seamless. He filled us with the zest of the Inverness/Isle of Skye area and people. My only regret was not having him with us for our entire trip. Thank you, Eddie and Scotland Guided Tours.
