Designer Tours of Scotland

Build your own Designer Tours of Scotland

The best way to experience Scotland is through a tour. Not only will you get to see multiple historical sites, impressive scenery, natural wonders and more, but you can do so with the support and assistance of someone who knows exactly what’s what and where they’re going. There’s no getting lost, no finding something and wondering what it is – a tour is the most comprehensive and uncomplicated way to get to know Scotland.

When it comes to picking a tour, there are plenty of choices. One of which being Designer Tours of Scotland, who offer bespoke Scottish tour packages to best fit you and your group’s needs. These tours are perfect for a group holiday, a family trip, or even a nature-lover’s stag or hen-do.

How it works

Designer Tours have a number of pre-made tours that follow a rough path, or that have a list of sites. You can choose from this list, or you can completely craft a new tour with their help. If you choose a premade tour, you get to choose where the tour starts. From there the company will work with you to determine the total drive time, and which order you’re going to travel in.

You can also choose from the following:

  • Private access to luxury transport
  • Pick up and drop off
  • Fuel and parking charges
  • Personal audio systems
  • Free bottled water
  • A sweet treat
  • Umbrellas
  • A custom map for each guest

The price of the tours depends on how long you intend to travel for, and how many are travelling.

  • The best wedding our guests had been to

    'Everyone has said it was the best wedding they have been too and the venue and staff are very much to take credit for that!'
  • Outstanding location

    'The location is outstanding - right on the edge of Loch Lomond with private water frontage and beaches. As a location for exploring, again this rates very highly.

There was plenty of space within the private function rooms, which gave our guests plenty of room to socialise while hiding from the wet west coast weather on our big day! It was great not having to share our day with uninvited guests. The...
  • Wish we had longer

    'The ducks were very amusing, each day they waddled around the lodges looking for food, we bought some duck food for them in the local village shop. We just wished we were here for longer and hope to return in the future.'
