Scottish Terrier Tours was fabulous. The husband-and-wife team of Graeme and Tracy make planning a tour super easy with great suggestions for sights, accommodations, and restaurants. Tracy was super quick to respond to our questions and helped us build a tour based on our interests. In our case this was a five-day tour for two of us, starting in Glasgow, ending in Edinburgh.

On the day of our tour, we were greeted at our hotel in Glasgow by Graeme. Graeme was a very welcoming and friendly guide. Not only is Graeme an excellent driver; he is also very organized providing us with a well thought out itinerary for each day. Even though the day was planned out, Graeme was flexible and adapted the plan for the day to align with our interests. As we drove along the beautiful Scottish countryside Graeme gave life to the sights through history and stories told from a proudly Scottish perspective. Sights ranged from large and well known, to small local hidden gems. We would (absolutely) highly recommend.
Thanks Graeme, Tracy (and Teddy), it was an absolute pleasure to celebrate my birthday with Scottish Terrier Tours.

In 2019, I began planning an adventure for me and one of my best friends. We both love Outlander so when we decided to go to Scotland, we knew we wanted to do an Outlander specific itinerary. I started the search for tour companies and stumbled upon Scottish Terrier Tours. And from the initial reaching out process, the owners, Graeme & Tracy were warm, attentive, and helpful. They put together an amazing 4 day itinerary based on places we said we wanted to see while also using their expertise to add in more places they knew we needed to experience. We were meant to travel to Scotland in May 2020 but we all know how that turned out. They were amazing about rescheduling. And now, 2 years later, the trip was finally able to take place. We flew to Glasgow and awaited our guide. We were told our guide, Hugh, would pick us up at our hotel. And from the moment he arrived, it was pretty much love at first sight. Just like the company he was representing, he was warm and lovely from the get go. And he also had us dying laughing more often than not. Our guide, Glencoe…oh, I mean Hugh (sorry, we now have inside jokes with him) is a wealth of information about all things Scotland. We learned so much along the way. But we could also just chit chat about any and all topics as we drove along the Scottish countryside from place to place. To say Scotland is beautiful is an understatement. It’s a magical place. And having someone who so clearly loves his job and his country made it that much more of a special experience. One of my favorite parts of traveling is meeting people and finding out how they live their lives. Forget the Dos Equis guy! Hugh might just be the most interesting man in the world. We loved hearing about his world travels & getting to hear about and then see some of his most beloved spots in Scotland. I could do on and on and on. That quote about how traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer, is so very true. I love making new friends while abroad and creating an international family. My friend and I both feel like Hugh is now a member of that family. And none of it would have been possible if not for Scottish Terrier Tours. I am so grateful to them for planning the best four days of fun! It was very hard to leave Scotland. But I know I will return one day! So if you’re looking for a tour company for your trip to Scotland, do yourself a favor and book with Scottish Terrier Tours. Thank you Graeme, Tracy & Hugh! A piece of my heart now belongs to Scotland!

My friend and I came to visit Scotland and we booked a 4-day tour through Scottish Terrier Tours. There are simply not enough words to describe how amazing our experience was. Our tour guide, Hugh, immediately made us feel at ease from the moment we met him. He personalized the tour to our interests and even made suggestions that he thought we would enjoy as the days went along. There were thoughtful touches at every turn. Snacks and drinks were left for us at just the right time and we never felt rushed to get through all the places we wanted to visit. He also knew we loved Outlander, so he thoughtfully planned for us to see some of those sights on our last day to end the trip on a special note. Hugh always drove us along the scenic routes that would let us see the beauty that the Scottish Highlands has to offer. We learned so much about the history of Scotland and we were so impressed by his knowledge about everything! The sights, history, and beauty of Scotland were incredible to experience, but the best part ended up being the connection we made with Hugh. We started off as tour guide and tourists but ended up as wonderful friends. He made our experience in Scotland so special and we will never forget it!

PS: Hugh is the best tour guide EVER! Love, Tay-Tay

Cannot speak more highly of our experience with Scottish Terrier Tours. Ricky was an unbelievable and flexible guide that kept 5 close friends completely entertained and informed for 2 full days. From picking us up at the airport to dropping us off at our Airbnb the trip was incredible. Ricky came prepped with Scottish snacks and a deep knowledge of highlands and Edinburgh.

Thanks again!

Graeme was great!
He communicated well and was right on time for pick-up. He went beyond duty helping out with our 2 disabled persons although there was no expectation that he would do so.

He dressed for the occasion in full traditional attire.

He was always teaching about each area, the history, geography, wars/battles/culture and even the folklore. He was very knowledgeable and answered our questions enthusiastically. Further, he brought along drinks and snacks and had great music!!

We had a fantastic 2 day tour with Graeme and will gladly call upon them again if we get another chance to come to Scotland!

We took an "Outlander" tour while we were in Scotland and were guided by Scottish Terrier Tours. Graeme, our guide, was highly knowledgeable and personable and got us special access to some of the sites we visited. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

It was a day I will never forget and would not have been half as good without Graeme.
If you are thinking of visiting Scotland, I would certainly recommend you get in touch with Scottish Terrier Tours.

We can’t say enough about our guide Graeme. We traveled Scotland for two weeks using Scottish Terrier Tours as our travel method between locations. Graeme didn’t just drive us from point A to B, put spent the entire day taking us to both well known as well as little known spots. We saw waterfalls, went on mountain hikes, beach walks, toured ruins, as well as the typical castles, etc. besides the touring, Graeme shared his extensive knowledge about Scottish history with us so we had a better understanding of what we where seeing and how it fit in to Scottish history. We would use Scottish Terrier Tours again in a heartbeat. Execellent!!

We had a 1 day private tour of historic and modern places . Graeme was a great tour guide and went out of his way to make sure we could easily see things. My husband was having a hard time walking because of a bad fall, and Graeme got us to the door of Sterling castle and in through the easy ways to everything inside. He also made it easy for us to visit the other things on our tour and took us to a very nice pub for lunch. He’s is very knowledgeable. We highly recommend him.

Hugh was amazing! He took us to the places we wanted to go and a few we didn't know we needed to see! Very accommodating of our group of 7 including kids, parents and grandparents. He even brought the kids snacks to fend off the hangry. We smelled local smells, ate local food, and felt like we really got a feel for the place. At least enough to know we need to come back! Thanks a million!

If you are planning a visit to the Greenock area of Scotland, especially if you are arriving by Cruise Ship do not take a tour with Scottish Terrier Tours. We had a tour scheduled which they refused to provide and then would not refund our money. Graeme and Tracy Giles are not people you can trust. You will be lied to and insulted. If you want a good excursion do not use them.

Dear Gary The tour (8 hour tour) you and your wife booked was detailed and agreed by your wife and myself in several emails and was paid in full, however you and your wife tried to change the itinerary, adding 100 miles and 3 hours on to the tour which was unworkable in the tight timeframe of your cruise ship departure. We are sorry you are disappointed but you were given a full refund. Kind regards Tracy
