Guided Scotland

Miles Forde Luskintyre Isle of Harris

Quality, small group and personal guiding across Scotland

Hi and a warm welcome


Born and raised in Edinburgh I have spent my life time exploring Scotland and would welcome the opportunity to share with you the best that this beautiful and deeply historic land has to offer.


Coming from a background in education and conservation I  provide a wide range of specialist, personal and small group tours to meet your ambitions. Genuinely taking you on a unique journey not just to the most iconic sites in Scotland but also to the wonderful, quieter places that few visitors get to see.


It is my aim to provide the highest quality of guiding and  hospitality for you and your group. Please do get in touch.

In addition I maintain  current certification from St Andrews Ambulance in emergency first aid. I carry appropriate insurance for both guiding and guest transport. Vehicles are always less than 3yrs old and maintained to a high standard at all times. Snacks, bottled water,  suitable hand wipes and sanitizer are provided as standard daily.
