When my wife and I decided to spend two weeks in Scotland and 10 days with a guide, we were a little nervous about how we would live with someone we didn't know for that long. Hugh was fantastic. He picked us up at the Balmoral in Edinburgh and we drove to Fort William to the Inverlochy Castle for two... More

We initially booked an Outlander themed day tour with Hugh Allison. We were flying into Edinburgh for a few days before and having a hard time trying to find flights from Edinburgh to Inverness. However, once we realized Inverness Day tours also did pick ups from Edinburgh to Inverness we also booked a transfer tour the day before our Outlander... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking a tour of the Highlands with George Munro on my birthday this past Monday. Boy did he make it a great b-day! From the moment he picked us up at our house he immersed us in a knowledge of the Highlands that only someone who has lived in the Highlands their... More

George Munro was a delight! We set out on a day tour up to the Isle of Skye. As the day progressed, the weather became cloudy and foggy. George managed, in spite of this, to make the tour entertaining and interesting. I highly recommend him. He researches his stuff-knows everything about the Scottish Highlands. He is also a great conversationalist-drawing... More

I had the full day tour with George today, he took 5 other ppl. 2 american couples, an english woman and myself. George has a wealth of information about the area and the history. Remembering that the Outlander books aren't about actual sites around Inverness, George took us to places that closely resembled the places involved in this story so... More

This time I had chosen the half day tour to Cawdor Castle and Culloden. The tour was informative and relaxing. In addition to the before mentioned we also visited the prehistoric gravesite Balnuaran of Clava. I got a bit of history, geography, local politics, and a number of interesting stories - a little bit of everything again.

The outlander tour was amazing! Hugh Allison is FULL of knowledge, about the book, the areas we visit and pass through and has a plethora of stories guaranteed to interest and entertain. We had lovely tour companions that ended up being more friends than strangers in the end. Just so pleased and am now re-re-reading the series and now, my... More

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in March 2014 with a magical trip to Scotland. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, take the Outlander tour. I am a big fan of the series and we booked the tour about six months in advance. We opened our reservation up to others that might want to join... More

Spent a day in the enthralling company of Hugh, the walking Wikipedia of the Highlands! Initially we had booked the whisky tour but we decided to change to the Isle of Skye tour and were happy we did as this really gave us an impression of the vastness and eerie beauty of Scotland. Hugh is talkative, cheerful and has an... More

We recently travelled to Scotland as a family. The day spent with Ian was a highlight for the five of us including 3 teenage/young adults boys. There was something for everyone. Ian even gave us very good advice for the rest of our trip. We saw and learned more in that day than we could ever have on our own.... More
