Uniquely Scotland was founded in 2013 by Archie Stirling-Aird. We are located in Central Scotland, next to the historic town of Dunblane.
We can help you put together a holiday package that is designed specifically for you based on your particular interests, timescale and budget. Our core values include:
- a flexible, friendly and personal service
- quality of product
- value for money without compromising quality
- an authentic Scottish experience
Our emphasis is on quality not quantity and we aim to give our clients a true taste of Scotland and its culture utilising our excellent local knowledge and contacts, as well as our passion for Scotland.
Whilst we will help you put together your holiday package and itinerary, putting forward suggestions based on your interests and requirements, our product will enable you to explore Scotland at your own pace with the freedom to act spontaneously and pick and choose what you want to do which we believe is how a holiday should be. We hope that you will return from your holiday in Scotland feeling refreshed and enriched by the experience.
Feel free to browse our website and get some holiday ideas, all of which can be tailored to suit you, and we will happily answer any questions you may have in relation to your holiday requirements. Please contact us for more information.
Meet the Team
Archie Stirling-Aird - Driver Guide/Travel Consultant
An experienced driver guide and qualified rural surveyor, Archie is from a rural background and was born and brought up in Scotland. He has also worked as a driver guide with another well known tour operator before setting up Uniquely Scotland and has previously worked in land management on a number of Highland and Lowland estates. Archie is a keen bagpiper (often taking his pipes with him on tour!), and plays at various events including weddings, and has a passion for Scotland and its stunning and dramatic landscape. He is also a keen fly fisherman and hill walker and loves nothing more than being out fishing on a Highland river.
Alan Kerr - Travel Consultant
A keen traveller and adventure-seeker, Alan is constantly looking for his next adrenaline fuelled activity. He’s a passionate hill-walker/ mountain-climber, ‘bagging’ as many Munros as he can, with the dream to one day reach Everest! Mix that with his passion for photography and wildlife and you’re sure to find him wandering the Highlands at the weekend. He writes about his adventures and shares his photos on his personal travel blog – www.alzosadventures.com. As a former waiter and manager in Pizza Hut, Alan left in 2018 to travel New Zealand and Australia before joining Uniquely Scotland in April 2019.
Dave Lake - Driver Guide
Before working as a driver guide, Dave was the general manager of the largest Outdoor centre in Scotland for 23 years, so customer care is in his blood, along with a determination to exceed expectations. Dave is a Mountain Leader, and also a photographer, amateur geologist, historian and wildlife enthusiast. As your driver and enthusiastic guide, he will keep you engaged and will ensure that your experience is interesting and fulfilling, based on his extensive knowledge and experience built up over decades of living and working in Scotland.
