What an amazing day we had with Jim last week exploring all things Edinburgh! He is truly a treasure. My husband and I were completely enthralled by his incredible knowledge of Scottish history, stories and insights of Scottish culture, and his great sense of humor. He was on-time (early, actually and rang the bell), courteous (waited at our door with umbrella in hand), cognizant of our interests, and always aware of the time to ensure we got the most out of our day. And the Land Rover was comfortable, clean and perfect for going up those mountain roads. We could not have been happier to be riding along with Jim or with the services of Discreet Scotland. If you are looking for a private tour of Scotland (one day or one week!), stop right now and look no further. Discreet Scotland is the place and Jim is your guy; although, by these reviews, it sounds like all the guides are fantastic. Thank you, Discreet Scotland and thank you, Jim. We look forward to seeing you and your beautiful country again!

Yes it’s expensive, but if you can afford it, it changes your mind on how to travel instead of doing tours with large coaches. This isn’t a tour, it’s more of a chauffeur who knows history and the heart of the land. Mathew not only took care of us, but made it very special. My family loved every moment, every minute. You travel in a Range Rover across Scotland, and how cool is that. Lovely.

Thanks to Martine and the lovely people at Discreet Scotland, we have fallen head over heels in love with Scotland. I can’t say enough good things about them, but I’ll suffice it to say that booking with them, and getting Martine as our fearless and incredibly knowledgeable guide was easily the best decision we could have made!

We could not be happier with our time with Discreet Scotland Tours. Setting up the tour was easy. Margaret and Mathew were so patient to help us in planning every step. We chose the 4 day Highlands and Isle of Skye tour.
Martine our guide was professional, knowledgeable, funny and kept us on schedule ( not an easy thing to do with our crew of 6) We got to see everything we came to Scotland to see.
She promised us that by the end we would see Scotland was the coolest country in the world and she was right!!
Our first day we saw Stirling Castle and Doune Castle where we learned tons of history and stories of battles. Then we drove thru the Gorgeous Green GlenCoe Mountains where we saw an extinct volcano and beautiful waterfalls. We also got to meet some Highland Cows. We stopped in Fort William where we stayed the night at the Inverlochy Castle, one of the list of hotels Discreet Scotland suggested. It was Fabulous!!!
Martine picked us up right on time the next morning and we were off on another day of wonderful adventures thru Glenfinnan and the 5 sisters. We visited the Wallace monument and Gorgeous beaches in Mallaig and then took the Ferry over to the Awesome Isle of Skye where we visited the Beautiful grounds of the Armadale Castle. We stayed the next two nights in Portree at the Cuillian Hills Hotel, also on the suggested list, where the view was Breathtaking!!
I could write so much more but you get the idea. Everything about our trip was top notch and we parted with Martine feeling like we had made a life long friend.
If you are looking for a tour of Scotland definitely go with Discreet Scotland tours!

We took a day tour with Jim, who was a fantastic guide. He made Scotland's history relatable and catered to our interests in a way that exceeded our best expectations. We only wish we had more time to spend! We will be back and we will make it a point to use Discreet Scotland when we do.

Thank Matthew J
