About Us





Lindsay's Highland Tours was born out of a genuine discontent with the mass-market representation of our beloved Scotland. As proud Scots, we found that the true essence of our homeland was lost in oversized tour groups and generic itineraries. 


We knew that the real magic of Scotland lay in its intimate tales, hidden trails, and majestic landscapes that one can only appreciate through a tailor-made journey. Driven by this realisation, we set out to offer something different: tours that are not about herding tourists, but about understanding individual interests and creating deeply personal Scottish experiences that resonate long after you leave.

Where It All Began


A Personal Dream

My father, George Lindsay, had a lifelong dream of travelling and exploring Scotland. From my earliest memories, I remember him taking our family away to the highlands whenever he got the chance. My dream was to help him retire and work on something he was passionate about. So, when he turned 60, I presented him with the business plan — a map of Scotland, some Irn Bru and keys to a van. On that day, Lindsay's Highland Tours came to life.

Who We Are

Lindsay's Highland Tours started as a father-son duo who were passionate about travelling and exploring the hidden trails of Scotland. 


Today, it has grown to a team of 6 professionals who've helped hundreds of travellers around the world experience the true beauty of Scotland.

The Turning Point


The Journey Begins

As Lindsay's Highland Tours took its first steps, we were motivated by the joy of sharing Scotland's beauty and rich heritage with people from all over the world. Our journey began with bespoke tours, each meticulously crafted to reflect the passions and interests of our guests. We helped them experience the real Scotland, from a local's perspective. This is what makes our trips so unique
