Scottish Tour Guide

Peter is not a professional Tour Guide with the usual badges and certificates.
However, on occasion, he has taken small parties around the Highlands, and remains open to doing so in future.

So, if you are visiting Scotland and thinking about a guide for a day or more; looking for a tour guide who is enthusiastic about Scottish History and Culture, contact me and we can discuss it.

Peter often wears the kilt on tour so you know you are in Scotland. If this sounds like your kind of guide then Glen Discovery is the place to start. Peter is a mature professional guide with a life-long passion for all aspects of Scotland.

You will travel at your pace deciding where you stop and for how long. No rushed itinerary, no pushy rep, you make the decisions on your day. Peter can of course make suggestions so that you get the most out of your visit.

Peter can arrange the most suitable vehicle for your tour and collect your party from any of the Scottish airports, rail stations or ports.

Or travel as a tour guide in your own vehicle, or in a coach with driver, prices negotiable.
