Hello and Welcome to  Scotland: 

A dramatic and beautiful land steeped in ancient history, intrigue and adventure.

 Enjoy seeing and exploring this wondrous country with us here at Duncan’s Tours where we aim to please and local knowledge comes free with every booking.

We understand that every visitor to Scotland has their own ideas about what they want to see and when.  Our tours are fully bespoke to your requirements, and unlike rigid coach style tours, we can offer you a unique personalised and customised tour suited to your desires, allowing you to see Scotland your own way!

From our infamous castles, distilleries and mountains to stone circles, islands, rivers, cities and crofts we aim to ensure your trip is filled with unforgettable moments and breath-taking sights and that no matter the weather (for which we are equally notorious!) you will go home having seen the best of what Scotland has to offer. 

Unfortunately, our changeable weather, does make it hard for more rigid tour operators (No one wants to spend hours in a coach to see nothing but mist and heather) but here at Duncan’s Tours, we can adapt your itinerary as required and offer a range of alternatives that will allow you to enjoy exploring castles and hillsides in the sunshine, or shelter from the wind and rain in some of Scotland’s wonderful museums and indoor attractions.
All our tours are flexible.

Your comfort and safety is always our top priority, and for our personalised tours, we operate a range of high quality vehicles and experienced drivers to transport you in style. These vehicles were carefully selected for their increased elevation and large windows to ensure you can fully immerse yourself in the beauty that will surround you on your journey and are stocked with fresh bottled Scottish spring water for your refreshment and a selection of Scottish music for your enjoyment.  More information on our vehicles and drivers can be found HERE>

What does Scotland have to offer? 

From the rugged North East to the the Outer Hebridean islands, to the Highlands and the ancient cities of the central belt, Duncan’s Tours will take you where ever you want to go.  Take a few days to bask in the white sands and turquoise waters of Barra, enjoy the imposing landscapes of the west coast or, if you have more time, soak in the unique individuality of the other Scottish Islands. If time is short, you can explore the castle trails of historic Aberdeenshire or enjoy a “dram or twa” at one of our many whisky distilleries.

Where ever you go you can admire a wide cross section of scenery, history, culture or heritage and many different ways of life from the past and present.

Scotland is also a very active country and there are many opportunities to see or take part in an array of outdoor leisure pursuits including mountaineering, golf windsurfing and skiing to canoeing, gliding and many, many more.

If that all sounds like too much work, you can just relax, travel and explore the breathtaking countryside and see the full glory of its rich and diverse scenery. There is always something to see – from dramatic vistas, to stunning wildlife and historical points of interest.  We encourage you to take still or moving pictures and if you want us to stop to take them, we are more than happy to do so if at all possible.

This is your tour so our drivers will ensure comfort breaks, directions, suggestions and help are available as required. We will take you to fresh, friendly eateries where you can experience the best of Scottish Hospitality.  

At Duncan’s Tours, we pride ourselves on knowing what is possible depending on your timescales and your ideal destinations. We ensure you have all the information you need to decide what you want to see, when and for how long.

Its not as simple as it sounds….. Almost as infamous as our weather are Scotland’s roads! Maps have a tendency to make Scotland look a small place- but its not! Long, winding  and very narrow, our roads are peppered with passing places, sheep, deer and limited overtaking opportunities so it can take a lot longer that you might think to get to some of our most requested destinations. Never fear though, these roads oft are home to some of our most dramatic scenery and wildlife. We promise its worth the journey!  

So, now all is said and done, please just sit back, relax and enjoy the magic that Scotland has to offer, while we do all the hard work for you. No matter the season or the weather, Duncan’s Tours are here to make your visit to Scotland one you will never forget. We can’t wait to show you around! 

Best wishes,

Duncan Stuart Barclay & The Duncan’s Tours Team.
