Tour Scotland - Leave The Herd Behind
I was born in the Fife mining town of Buckhaven and raised, for the most part,
in the East Neuk fishing villages of Cellardyke and Anstruther. My early work years were spent in St Andrews, followed by many years of working throughout the Kingdom of Fife as both a Community Educator and Arts Organizer.
For the past ten years I have organized and guided my Small Group Tours of Scotland. The whole premise of this Tour Company is to try and provide opportunities for discovery and understanding, not just notching sites. Thus I try, as best I can, to persuade travelers not to request an endurance test for an itinerary, and, to limit each group is to an absolute maximum of 30 people (unless by special request), with a typical small group being just 6 people.
I prefer to guide groups through Scotland in a relaxing manner, staying at two or three base locations from which we can visit sites of interest, and not have to move luggage every day. My small group members tend to be travelers rather than tourists, enjoying seeing behind the tourist façade, while visiting with "locals" and visiting many sites not normally seen by the regular tourist.
One of the best base locations is Dunkeld which is one of my favourite towns in all of Scotland. Not only is the town and local area very beautiful, but Dunkeld is ideally situated as a base location, within easy driving distance to numerous other great Scottish sites including; Perth, Loch Ness, St Andrews, Edinburgh, Stirling, Pitlochry, Edradour, Crieff, Aberfeldy, Dundee, and a hundred points of interest in between. The Dunkeld area truly makes for an excellent base from which to tour much of Scotland.
Many group members visit Scotland to trace their Scottish ancestry; others to golf or fish; most come to simply enjoy the beautiful scenery, historic buildings and gardens, and most of all, to meet and enjoy the people of Scotland. My Small Group Tours can be best described as being " couthy. "
It's a Scottish word meaning " gentle."
