The tour was exactly what the reviews promised. We left from Café Nero on the Royal mile promptly. George was our driver and he went over the itinerary for the day stressing the importance of getting back to the bus on time. He also explained that if people had a tight schedule that they might want to reconsider as the... More

Not being a scotch drinker, I went only because as it was on my husband's bucket list! Although I can't say that I have become an avid Scotch drinker, what an awesome experience. The small group size is ideal. The driver/tour guide was so wonderful and adds the local flavor and history. Not only did we do numerous whiskey tastings,... More

We took part in the 4 Days Islay tour in August 2014. The driver/guide has not only precise driving & highly knowledge but sense of humor & kindness for all passengers. We really enjoyed as much as seven distilleries tours, of course including tasting. We were also impressed with warm hospitality & sufficient amenities in Bowmore house selected by Scottish... More

We had such a great trip last summer with Scottish Routes that we signed up for another tour. Well the magic was still there & we had a wonderful trip & they spoiled us rotten. They booked our lodging, ferry passages while touring us throughout the Highlands & Hebrides. We enjoyed our time exploring & discovering the beauties of Scotland... More

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....

Our party of 11 had the privilege of Will personally driving us on & off over ten days in his luxury bus, travelling a whisky route to Speyside, Orkney Island, Islay and Glasgow. Will must be one of the... More

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
