Driver Guided tours
We like to keep our tour groups small with a maximum group size of 6 people, to provide an exclusive and personal service with a relaxed and informal feel. The small groups also allow you more freedom and flexibility on your trip. Archie, with his vast knowledge of Scotland and numerous local contacts, will be your driver guide for your holiday and can assist with your itinerary planning depending on your interests and requirements. Our bespoke tours are perfect for couples, families and small groups of friends looking for an informative, fun and relaxed trip around Scotland staying at some of Scotland’s finest and most unique hotels and B&Bs. Archie is also a keen bagpiper and will happily bring is pipes along to give you a tune or two whilst we are on tour!
We can pick you up and drop you off from anywhere in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling or Perth, just let us know.
You will find some example tours at our driver guided tours section. Remember these are just examples and we will happily put a tour together based on your interests and requirements and we can organise visits to attractions, specific activities and events, a number of which are exclusive to Uniquely Scotland.

- Archie as your driver and guide

For multi-day tours, there is an extra charge of £60 per night to cover Archie’s accommodation and food.

This allows you more flexibilty to pick and choose what you wish to do on each day of your tour.
We specialise in self-drive holiday itineraries utilising our excellent local knowledge and contacts to take as much of the hassle away from you with the aim of giving you the holiday of a lifetime.
There is nothing quite like having a holiday under your own steam; avoid waiting for public transport, take a relatively large amount of luggage, simply put it in the boot of a car and off you go. You can travel at your own pace, and visit what you feel like at any particular time with the added advantage of using our local knowledge to give you a holiday that is perfect for you.
You will find a number of our example itineraries at our self-drive itineraries page. Remember these are just examples, we can tailor make the itinerary to suit your interests and requirements.
