Highly knowledgeable, adaptable, and fun to be with guides made our August 2014 trip to Scotland a great experience. All the details including lodging, dinning, transportation, gardens,distilleries,historic sites were expertly handled so all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. Scottish Routes provided different guides for several of the many venues of our trip and all three guides were fantastic.... More

Just returned from our second visit to Scotland with Will Stockham as our guide. We enjoyed our trip with him so much last year that we began planning this return trip before we finished the first! I must admit I purposely did not review his excellent services last year because I wanted to improve our chances of booking him again.... More

Our Scottish Routes guides' knowledge and upbeat personalities are what "made" our trip to western Scotland. We were three couples and we never would have learned so much, seen so many things, or had so many laughs without them. We ended up having three different guides at different times and places and none disappointed. While distilleries were on the itinerary,... More

Not sure where to begin. This was a 40th birthday trip with my closet friend and the destination and purpose of our travels was Islay whiskey! Our guide, James, was bar none the best guide we could have wanted. Friendly, knowledgable, witty, and willing to go beyond the standard sites to give us as much history and culture as possible....

A group of Canadian friends and myself, all part of a malt whisky society here in Ottawa, contacted Scottish Routes to organize a tour of some of Scotland's Island distilleries, a number of us having previously been on a Cathedral & Distillery tour in 2012. Arriving in Glasgow Marti McColm once again met us at the airport and this time... More

I have just finished a tour of Scotland with Will and the Scottish routes. We had 11 of us in the tour and as soon as we stepped on the bus the education began, as well as a sensory expedition of some of Scotland's best distilleries. Will had organised for us to meet distillery managers, owners, make what was only... More

We toured from Edinburgh to Islay to Oban to Isle of Skye then back to Edinburgh with Marti McColm. It was a fabulous trip . We saw so many things we never would have found and learned so many things as well. Marti was a wealth of knowledge regarding Scottish history with an extremely pleasant presentation. All aspects of the... More

I thought we had got it right when our Limo (a White Jaguar) arrived spot on time to pick us up at our Glasgow hotel. Our chauffer had a mine of info about the sights as we wafted to Deanston Distillery where we joined the rest of the tour. Our Tour Guide and Driver Duncan was incredable. He had an... More

Our trip to Scotland with Scottish routes was incredible. We went to great distilleries and tried many new whiskies. Our tour guide Will was in contact with us months leading up to the trip and planned great itinerary based on what we wanted to do and see. He provided us with tons of informations so we could make our decisions.... More
