Matthew is an outstanding representative for Scotland. We saw so many "off the beaten path" highlights of Scotland. Very accommodating for our teenage kids interests. Plenty of time to free roam the waterfalls and outdoors a bit. Great mix of scenic landscapes and historical sites. Far and away the best segment of our vacation and our year and a half... More

We had two different tour guides over three days. They were both so professional and knowledgeable. They were also a pleasure to spend time with.

Ditto all the other glowing reviews, so I will try not to repeat what others have already mentioned. I'll just add a couple points that I hope will recommend this company to you. Can't imagine how you could go wrong here. Spent the day with Hamish and he's top notch. Stopped for hair binders for our daughter at our request.... More

We were six friends spending time in Scotland and decided to see a little of the highlands. Touring with Matthew of Discreet Scotland was the best decision we made! We learned a lot about the Scots, their history, countryside, and inventions. As a small group, we could be more nimble in our itinerary for the day and work within the... More

My wife and I toured the highlands and Isle of Skye with Matthew and the Discreet Scotland private tours. We have done these types of tours throughout the world and Matthew was the best we have ever experienced. The tour was complete with great information on history, Scotland economy, highlights and with great conversation and humor. Matthew is the owner... More

After reading many reviews on tripadvisor, my husband and I decided to use Discreet Scotland to take us through our whirlwind tour through the Scottish Highlands...we were not disappointed. My husband and I are avid recreational photographers so it was important to have a flexible driver willing to cater to our whims. Similarly, we are generally not a fan of... More

From the time Hamish picked us up, until he delivered us at the end of the day, was amazing. We drove through gorgeous countryside on our way to Scone Palace and Blair Castle. On our request he even found time for us to visit Edradour Distillery in Pitlochery. Hamish was informative and took all our questions in stride. I highly... More

Had an absolutely wonderfuly enjoyable and educational experience, late May 2014. Matthew was a fountain of energy and knowledge. Very flexible if we wanted to take a detour and we did quite a bit of that. The ability to discuss what we were seeing without having to disrupt a larger tour group was certainly a big plus for us. Scotland... More

With only four nights and three days in Edinburgh we surely wanted to see and experience as much of Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands as our time there would allow. After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we contacted Discreet Scotland and booked our personal car and driver. With great anticipation (and prayers for a clear day of weather) the day for... More

Matthew truly runs a one-of-a-kind operation. My husband had spent a bit of time in Scotland growing up, so as a result, had a few special requests of where he would like to go. However, we were also open to professional suggestion! We also have 4 boys (ages 10-16) which makes us unique, as we desire to have a bit... More
