          St Andrews, villages and harbours tour south of Dundee
          A great day out on a private guided tour with Paul from Strachan Tours. Definitely recommended and extremely easy to book a tour here on Tripadvisor. Paul offers several times for departure on the tours which is great if, for example, you fancy a lie in at your hotel! Paul collected us from Dundee station in an MPV and headed south towards St. Andrews which was the first stop of many during an excellent day out. After St. Andrews we headed for numerous small harbours and former fishing ports although some of them are still in use and judging by the prices in local restaurants the catch is of fantastic quality. Definitely well recommended - Paul took us to many places which we would never have dreamt being accessible and his knowledge about the local area and the places we visited was top notch. Cheers!

          More than 500 Miles
          Paul was our driver and tour guide for 7 days straight in and around the beautiful Scotland, September 2023. There was 6 of us (three adult couples over 50 :) ) If you read through the reviews, the common thread is Paul's love for Scotland and the Scottish History/Heritage. He showed us more of Scotland than we ever dreamed possible in such a short period of time. We started with an itinerary of our own but he was instrumental in adjusting, adding and changing where either he or we decided to amend. He also assisted in booking of hotels, restaurants and B&B type accommodations. I would walk 500 miles with Paul and we highly recommend his services.

          You Take the High Road
          I've been wanting to visit Scotland for about 20 years. In that time, I've experienced many life changes, including meeting my wife. She encouraged me to finally make time for this special trip. We booked an ambitious, multi-day tour with Paul, taking us through marvelous countrysides, isles, villages, cities and more. In good weather and not-so-good weather, Paul provided the wildly memorable outing I'd always dreamt of. He took great care of my wife and I, sharing stories, providing valuable information and interesting insights, and good humor all the way. He also graciously answered any and all manner of silly questions we came up with. I can't emphasize enough how happy the whole experience made me. We *highly* recommend Strachan Tours for your Scotland experience.

          Wonderful half-day excursion
          I had a wonderful day out at Glamis castle. Paul is a very well informed guide and the entire experience was like going on a relaxed day trip with a knowledgeable friend. Very relaxed, yet informative and interesting. I highly recommend it.

          We saw Scotland like we never would have.
          My wife and I spent 4 days and 3 nights with Paul on a personalized tour from Edinburgh, through Inverness, to the Isle of Skye and then dropped at our hotel in Glasgow. We had a detailed, written itinerary which Paul seemed to edit as we travelled and talked. My wife mentioned she liked waterfalls and miraculously we were stopping to see multiple falls not previously mentioned. Paul is very personable and obviously proud of his home Scotland. We would not return to Scotland without booking something with Strachan Tours and Paul. Paul.....thanks for the memories!

          It was a very good opportunity to visit a coastal area. Lovely views , a bit of history, highlights and why not, “shopping”. Really enjoyed this half day tour .

          Good company to deal with
          BEST TOUR COMPANY we have dealt with in a while. We went to a couple distilleries and out the Inverness/Loch Ness, with a good drive through the Highlands. Definitely knowledgable about the area. Paul, driver/owner is personable and also reads his clients well. It was nice to have a driver that can share information along a winding drive, but also respect the quiet moments when we chose to nod off. As we were traveling during the Pandemic, it is also nice to note that the company had a reasonable idea of what was open or not, and the driver alway work mask. The vehicle was very clean and we felt safe.

          Relaxing tour with a wonderful guide
          We booked a day tour - Beautiful Braveheart. Paul picked us up from our hotel in St. Andrews in a very comfortable van. We visited Campbell castle, and Paul gave us some wonderful background on the site and mentioned the things not to miss and let us explore on our own. Next on our tour, we passed the William Wallace monument and Paul again did not disappoint to provide historically accurate information on this man that is known to us Americans, only from Mel Gibson's "account" in Braveheart. We stopped at Stirling castle and again, Paul provided us with some idea of how best to explore the castle, the "not to miss" things and let us spend our time exploring. He offered the guided tour but we opted to take it in on our own. We finished the day with a drive by of Dounne Castle...Paul explained the pop culture significance of this castle, Monty Python and Outlander...we opted to skip the tours and went to Deanston distillery instead and were not disappointed. Paul has a wonderful personality and great amount of knowledge about Scotland. We definitely will take another tour with Paul when we return to Scotland.

          Book with Paul and you won't be disappointed
          My wife, her parents, and myself booked a 4 night 5 day tour with Paul a few weeks ago. We were doing a trip of the UK and really wanted to explore the Scottish Highlands without driving ourselves on the wrong side of the road into an accident! He picked us up from our hotel in Edinburgh in the morning. We then proceeded to stay off the major highways for the majority of our trip until we were dropped off at the Inverness Airport 5 days later. Paul catered the tour to our interests keeping us off the beaten bath and through the Scottish country side. We went from Edinburgh to the Isle of Mull on the first day staying at a charming bed and breakfast in Tobermory, a small fishing village, overlooking the harbor. Paul made multiple stops at lochs, standing stones, and castle ruins along the way. His knowledge of Scottish history and way of life was astounding. Rarely was he not able to answer our questions. A storm blew in on the isle so our day at sea whale watching was cancelled, but that didn't stop Paul from giving us a wonderful tour around the island. We then took the fairy back to Oban to spend our second night. Paul then drove us up the west coast of Scotland to Inverness stopping to see Glencoe, the Harry Potter viaduct and train, Loch Ness, and multiple castle ruins along the way. We then stayed in Inverness for our last 2 nights in Scotland. Paul picked us up both mornings. We toured Craggenmore distillery, highlands Zoo, Chanonry point, Fort George, a sheep dog demonstration, Culloden, castles, and standing stones over our last 2 days. By the end of the trip Paul had become a true friend and a member of our clan. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and is a phenomenal tour guide. We wouldn't have seen half of the things we did in Scotland if it wasn't for him. We will recommend him to all of our friends/family, and if we ever get back to beautiful Scotland we will definitely use his services again. P.S. Paul you were right. We enjoyed our time in Scotland more than any other part of our trip. It truly is the jewel of the UK! Cheers!

          Well worth it!
          totally agree with Amber F the previous reviewer. Now having seen all the homes of the Royals this was definitely at the top of the list for my friend and I. Easy to get to by bus. Tourist Information were first class giving us all the information to get there which was a great help also.

          A favourite
          This was one of our favourite visits. Having seen the interiors, could quite understand why it was a favourite of the late Queen Mother. A very good guided tour despite finding the guide's voice high and "ear cracking" - would have liked to have spent a little more time just looking at the rooms but can understand why this wasn't allowed - it still being a privately owned home. Will just have to read up more on it's history. The grounds are wonderful - a place to stretch your legs and enjoy walking through the pinetum, up to the walled garden and around The Great Chestnut Tree which I found poignant. This wonderful tree was planted some centuries ago, has massive leaves and branches that touch the ground only to form another "tree". Would return again if we lived closer.

          Personalized Touring
          My wife and I bought a package through GiveSmart which included an all day tour w/Paul from Strachan Tours. Paul picked us up promptly from our St Andrews resort and took us on a personalized all day tour. We were swept away into the history of Scotland seeing the Stirling castle, Rossyln Chapel among other historic highlights. Thanks Paul, for a memorable Scottish experience!

          Relaxing Sunday drive
          I booked Paul as I was away with a group of 6 females for my Daughter's Hen Weekend. I organised for the East Neuk of Fife Tour. We went to St. Andrews for Afternoon Tea, down to Crail and then onto Anstruther. Paul was a fantastic tour guide and managed to put up with 7 babbling women for the afternoon! I would highly recommend Strachan Tours and will look forward to using them again. That is if Paul's nerves can stand it! 😂

          Excellent Service!
          Paul was amazing! He picked my mother and I up from the airport, and was beyond patient with some airline delays. Took great care of us driving us from Edinburgh to the Highlands, and although it was just a drive we booked, he gave us tons of information and was just a pleasure to have conversation with overall. I highly recommend booking ANYTHING with Paul- he is the best, pricing is competitive and he is so knowledgable and willing to go with the flow to make the experience spectacular. Thanks, Paul!

        Tour guide owner Paul showed us Scottish Highlands. He specifically asked our interests and ability to walk a little. He's very pleasant and conversational without being verbose. Very worthwhile!
        Was very willing to wait as we toured Dewars distillery.

        We booked full day tour for Highland Experience with family of four. Paul picked us up from our accommodation promptly. We saw all we wanted to see and Paul told lot about places we visited. Nice minivan for traveling. Long day, around 600 km of traveling. Lots of beautiful scenery and historical places. If you wanna experience most of Highlands in a day, I recommend this. Paul was very professional and friendly guide.
