Who can resist a gentleman in a kilt!

Well actually that was the last thing we expected- what a gentleman with a huge talent for telling stories that are captivating, even for our 14yr old boy who 'hates' history. We... read more

Well actually that was the last thing we expected- what a gentleman with a huge talent for telling stories that are captivating, even for our 14yr old boy who 'hates' history.

Hugh Allison is magnificent and a true gentleman! We had a private three day tour from Edinburgh to St. Andrews to Inverness to the Scottish Highlands from coast to coast and in between. Hugh is an incredible historian who has so much knowledge to share about Scotland's history. We followed the path of Outlander film sights and added a few... More

We were lucky to have Hugh as our guide. He picked us up from our place and took us via a scenic route to Clava Cairns first. Hugh took time to explain everything and was very knowledgeable. This was followed by Colloden, a very sobering experience, and again well narrated by Hugh. After some purchasing (including Hugh's own book), we... More

We did have a fabulous day, didn't we. It is always a dream for a guide to be travelling with folks totally invested in finding out all about where they are. It was an absolute pleasure sharing my Highlands with you all, and it was an added bonus managing to catch the lovely sunset at Dores Bay on Loch Ness... More

We spent one of our two days in the Highlands on a day tour with George. My wife booked the day as a birthday gift to me so that we could see a few distilleries. I'll start with the itinerary itself and then get to our day as a whole. We went to the Glenmorangie and Glen Ord distilleries as... More

We travelled to Inverness in September and booked two tours with Inverness Tours. Booking with Hugh was effortless and pleasureable and we were paired with our tour guide, Laura, what a stroke of luck, we found Laura to be the perfect person to take us on our discovery of our roots, for some on the Isle of Skye and others...

The trip of a lifetime! We spent and entire week in the company and care of Hugh Allison of Inverness Tours. Our trip was an Outlander Immersion Tour but it was so much more than that. Hugh was able to weave in the Outlander pop culture references and clearly separate some of the fiction in the book from the non-fiction... More

We were so lucky to have Hugh for this adventure. His personality was so engaging and warm and he was so knowledgeable of the Inverness area. He dropped us off and saw to it that we got on the Loch Ness boat to Urquhart Castle where he met us. Taking the boat gave us picturesque views as we approached the... More

Let me start by saying this day exceeded our expectations! We were lucky enough to get George as our tour guide and he definitely helped make the day great.

We had a wonderful time on our Outlander tour with George Munro! It was a lovely day from start to finish. George picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9 and we enjoyed spending the day learning about the area and getting to know him. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Inverness!
