Scotland is a land steeped in History, Myths and Legends everywhere you look. From prehistoric standing stones to the more ‘modern’ battlefields and castles of the 14th and 18th Centuries, this rich land has plenty of secrets hidden with her misty Glens and around her dark, mysterious Lochs. We would be delighted to offer you the chance to experience the ‘hidden’ past with a journey through the countryside into Scotland’s history, geography and culture, by taking a coach/driver/rider tour like no other!

Specialising in bringing Scotland’s rich history to life through Re-enactment and Living History for many years, we understand that by combining history and entertainment with the needs of our guests, we can offer tailor-made tours that we would want to experience on our holidays.

Whether it is the chance to capture some amazing photographs, find your favourite whisky at any of the stunning distilleries, or simply have the chance to relax as you walk, ride or are driven around the length and breadth of Scotland, we guarantee that you will go home enriched with memories that will last a lifetime.

Specialities :- Driver Guiding, Walking Tours, mountaineering, nature

Ian was brought up just South of Glasgow, he has had a long standing love affair with Scotland. From a young age Ian has had a enthusiasm for the adventurous side of the Scottish landscape and his twenties found him skiing, white water kayaking and walking in the hills of this beautiful country. His passion for Scottish culture came to fruition when he became part of a group called The White Cockade, a living history, re-enactment group who would travel the country bringing history alive to its audiences. Being introduced to this way of communicating Scotland’s history was to be a turning point in his life.
Ian’s love of the landscape has recently been reignited with his interest in photography. This new hobby is proving a great way of scouting out some truly sensational, less travelled spots, which he is only too happy to share with you.
His knowledge of Scottish history and culture from the Vikings, to the Scottish Wars of Independence, to the Jacobite Risings of 1745 is second to none. Couple this with a talent of making his love of Scotland feel fresh, fun and relevant makes him the ideal Personal Guide for your excursion.
His touring cars are a Mercedes Viano and a Hyundai i800. They carry up to seven passengers, these are roomy cars which are fully air conditioned. All of Scotland covered, Driver-guiding and ‘hop on’

HOSTGA

Day Coach, Extended Coach, Driver Guiding, Wildlife, Walking
Specialities: local history, landscape, land use

Born and bred on a family farm then educated in Moray I spent most of my life there although my work took me throughout the Grampian Region. I worked for over 35 years in different aspects of Scottish Law. I am passionate about encouraging visitors to see and experience the best (not necessarily the most expensive) about Scotland and our people. I try my hand at photography, golf, curling and skiing with varying degrees of success. I will assist with welcoming people into the area, tour guiding and itinerary planning for 1/2 and whole day tours. I can include lowland walking, gardens, castles but what I particularly like is tailor-made days for small groups.

HOSTGA

½ Day/ 1day / extended coach
Specialities:  Isle of Skye, Outdoors adventure, Scottish traditional music, Arts, Photography, Tea ceremony, Business and events organisation.

I was born and raised in culturally rich Yunnan province in the South-west of China and moved to Scotland in 2008. Now based in Kyle of Lochalsh, I guide tours mostly on the Isle of Skye.
I have a degree in the English language, which I gained in China and I have a HND in business, which I gained at University of Highlands and Islands in Scotland.
I run a small tea business supplying speciality teas and I present tea ceremonies for functions and special events for local college, café and restaurants.

My interests are in Arts, Music, Photography and History. Since moving to the Lochalsh area of Highlands of Scotland I have developed a keen interest in studying the rich local culture, traditional Scottish music, outdoors adventure, and photographing the spectacular scenery.
I have become particularly fond of the many Folk stories that The Western Isles are known for, and understanding all the different layers of history and how they relate to each other.

HOSTGA

½ day / 1 day / driver-guiding including extended tours / year-round

Specialities:
Spectacular routes; ancient forts and magnificent castles; Neolithic cairns, standing stones from various ages and a trail of the amazing carved stones of the Pictish era; ancient woodlands and forests; native animals, birds and plants.

I was born in Hastings (south coast of England) to a Dutch father and English mother. Being very keen on walking and camping in the Scottish hills, I managed to get my first job in the Highlands in 1972 and never looked back. The Scottish Highlands is my chosen home and I can never get enough of exploring its hills and mountains, river glens and straths carved out by the ice age. I love the fascinating combination of sandy beaches, breath-taking cliffs and wide-open horizons. Thanks to our changeable weather, it’s never dull here.

I carved out a career in tree surgery and forestry work which has given me wide and varied insights into Scottish land use and a keen interest in ancient trees. Owing to its relative lack of industrial development, the Scottish Highlands is an area rich in archaeological sites many of which are missed by the uninitiated on the usual tourist trail. Although not an expert in geology, I have an abiding interest in the rock formations that make up our countryside. One of my hobbies is sailing and I have enjoyed many splendid coastal views from my boat. It won’t surprise you to hear that I love reading non-fiction literature about maritime history, whilst my favourite novelist is Patrick O’Brian.
With my partner, Brigitte Geddes, I can take you on spectacular tours of the Highlands including Skye. We can also arrange castle tours, garden tours and Outlander tours for you or take you on a trip exploring the history of your clan. Provided you do the preparatory genealogical research, we can take you on a trail of your very own ancestors.
If you are interested, we can give you lots of information on country life and the wild outdoors introducing you to our dramatic mountains, and our fascinating range of plants, trees and animals some of which we might spot on our way. I think that it is also important to give you moments of calm enabling you to enjoy the memorable sounds and sights of the Highlands and Islands.

Specialities: Whisky Scotch and Scottish Gin Trail, distillery visits, translations and interpreting, corporate visits.

The fascination with Scotland started as a student of English, back in Argentina where I originally come from. Little did I know then, that a few years later, I would be living in the heart of the Highlands, having such a wonderful landscape at my doorstep. Since moving here in 2002 I have been working as an interpreter for various whisky companies which organise whisky tours as part of their PR activities.
Over the next few years, my knowledge about Scottish history and culture increased and, Spanish being my mother tongue, I soon started guiding Spanish-speaking groups of tourists around the area, hoping they feel as fascinated with this wonderful place as I still do.

The North East of Scotland has been my home since 1984. I moved here from Germany, my native country, being attracted by Scotland’s natural beauty and remoteness. Although I am an engineer by profession, I prefer working with people and have been intensely involved with group work in a variety of settings, here and abroad, ever since I moved here. I have travelled a lot, over extended periods of time, but always love returning home to Scotland. Here I am reminded that so many more treasures can be found right on my doorstep.
