My name is Jeff and I am the proud owner of Purple Heather Scottish Tours which I set up in 2017 with the aim of sharing my passion for Scotland and giving people an unforgettable 5* experience. With over 20 years in the Travel and Tourism industry in various different roles, I along with excellent driver/guides, would love to show you Bonnie Scotland, regarded by many as the most beautiful country in the world.

Relax as we travel through the stunning scenery that this amazing country has to offer. From sandy beaches, breathtaking mountains, historical monuments and beautiful cities, not to mention its whiskey, Scotland has plenty to boast of. We have a variety of private and bespoke day tours available.

We specialise in tailor-made multi-day tours built around your personal interests and preferences, we book all your driver/guides, transport and entrances to various attractions such as castles, distilleries, etc. All vehicles used will be fully insured and of a high specification, and we also have public liability insurance.

We have welcomed many clients to Scotland who arrive as strangers and I can say I now count as friends. Scotland awaits one and all so don’t delay, book today. We also welcome any enquiries from travel agencies, and other tour companies. Larger parties can be catered for on tours of Scotland.

Your Bespoke Tour

Scotland is best known for its breathtaking unspoiled scenery, whisky, golf and its historic castles and cities. We can arrange helicopter tours of our famous landmarks, or you can take in the splendour of Loch Lomond from a private boat. For more inspiration on what you could visit, read through our popular items below, or browse through our standard day tours; we can incorporate any parts of these into your luxury bespoke tour.

Mountains and Glens Tours

On leaving Scotland’s Central Belt you quickly enter wild terrain with mountains rising steeply from the roadside and stunning views as you traverse from one glen to the next.

Scotland produces a wide variety of foods including seafood and game so we are confident that we will find fine-dining restaurants to suit your tastes.

If you are feeling fit we can arrange outdoor activities from gentle hill walks to mountain climbing, or you may wish to take in the scenery from a boat trip along one of Scotland’s many sea lochs.

Whisky Distilleries Tours

Whisky (or in Gaelic, Uisge Beatha “the water of life’) is synonymous with Scotland and distilleries are found throughout the country, each area producing distinctly different spirits.

The production of malt whisky is highly skilled and maturation is essential, often in used Bourbon or Sherry casks. Let us take you behind the scenes on a distillery tour during your visit, finishing with a sample of the produce, of course.

Golf Tours

As the home of golf, Scotland has many well known famous courses such as St Andrews, Gleneagles and Turnberry. The British Golf Museum is located in St Andrews. Scotland is also home to the oldest form of golf course, the links, which stretch along coastal areas offering fantastic views and challenging holes.

If golf is your passion, let us incorporate a few rounds into your itinerary!

Historic Sites Tours

Scotland is awash with history. From well preserved neolithic structures over 5000 years old to living castles bearing the scars of battles between Scots clans (and sometimes the English) over hundreds of years.

We will help you discover the Scottish clans in your family tree, their castles, their territories, and their tartans.

Photography Tours

As one of the last wildernesses in Europe, Scotland is home to many forms of wildlife and endlessly breathtaking scenery. Herds of wild deer roam freely in the rugged mountains, glass-like lochs offer pristine reflections of the surrounding terrain and moody sky above, and puffins and other migratory birds congregate on our cliffs and dramatic shores.

We can offer many opportunities to capture the stunning scenery and Scotland’s wildlife in its natural environment from land or sea.
