Take The High Road and The Low Road

In the far north of the UK sits Scotland, a country with a proud nation and fascinating history. From the wilderness of the Highlands with its mountains, Lochs and glens to the vibrant and historical cities, Scotland is a remarkable place to explore. Escorted coach tours that include Scotland will give you an excellent opportunity to get the best out of this glorious land. Edinburgh is the Scottish capital and offers the visitor a vast amount of sights to see. Notably, the iconic Edinburgh Castle standing on its rocky hill is a sight to behold. In the summer you can take in the wonderful spectacle of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo or soak up the extraordinary atmosphere of the Edinburgh Festival. Be sure to catch one of the Edinburgh Bus Tours to get the most out of your visit and find out some little known facts about this amazing place. Further up the coast is St Andrews, a magnificent town steeped in history. Once there, you will find Blackfriars Chapel, the Chapel of St Mary on the Rock, St Andrews Castle, St Andrews Cathedral, the medieval city gate of West Port and many, many more historic sites. Again, book a guided tour to get the most out of it. Also known as the ‘Home of Golf, St Andrews boasts seven golf courses and attracts people from all over the world to play a round of golf on its exceptional courses. 

Unleash The Monster

Travel towards Inverness to find the deep waters of Loch Ness and its mysterious monster. Loch Ness is the second deepest loch in Scotland, deep enough to hide the biggest monster. Controversy around the existence of this monster still rages on today, but still plenty of people come hoping for a glimpse. Why not take a local sightseeing tour and cruise on Loch Ness to embrace the outstanding beauty. 

It's a Kind of Magic

Another popular visitor attraction is Fort William which is located in the Ben Nevis region. This region is well known for its stunning natural beauty and imposing mountainous range, especially Ben Nevis – the highest mountain in the UK. This mountain is extremely popular and attracts thousands of climbers a year, including those doing the Three Peaks Challenge. You can also find the Glenfinnan Viaduct in this region, a splendid railway bridge made famous by the Harry Potter films. Countless famous movies and television shows are filmed in Scotland from Braveheart starring Mel Gibson, to the current smash hit TV series Outlander, based on the books by  Diana Gabaldon.

Round off your day with a guided tour around the Ben Nevis Distillery and Visitor Centre in Fort William, one of many Whisky Distilleries to be found in the highlands of Scotland. You can’t visit Scotland without a trip to Glasgow, Scotland’s second city and famous for its art nouveau architecture and active and dynamic cultural scene. You can start by exploring some of Glasgow’s top attractions on a guided tour. Be intrigued by the many museums and art galleries, and find out how the world famous Scottish architect, designer and artist, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, embraced Art Nouveau in some of his wonderful works. Finish the day at ‘Ubiquitous Chip’, one of Glasgow’s finest restaurants, serving Scottish cuisine at its best.

Capital City

Good morning

Good evening

With breathtaking scenery, hearty cuisine and ancient history and culture, it's easy to fall in love with Scotland. Join your expert Trafalgar Travel Director and roam the wild Highlands, misty glens, medieval cities and majestic castles in this land of Vikings, Romans and royalty.

Ramble up the Royal Mile in Edinburgh

Follow in the footsteps of kings and queens from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to Edinburgh Castle. As we wander the once processional route, you will sample Scottish specialties and glimpse the city’s medieval past. Scotland’s authentic charm fills Edinburgh’s narrow closes and wynds.

Journey through Scottish Highlands

Wind north through sweeping glens, and you will understand this ancient land. On your Scottish Highlands tour, you will appreciate the waterfalls and haunted past of Glencoe Valley, the mythical monster of Loch Ness and the medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle.

View Arthur's Seat

Not far from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, you’ll find a taste of Scotland's wild countryside. Hike up windswept hills alive with heather flower in bloom, and sit atop an ancient volcano watching the sprawling city below.

Hear the story of the Royal Yacht Britannia

Step aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia and discover what royal glamor looks like at sea. The British Monarch’s boat for over 40 years, this extravagant watercraft is now permanently docked in Edinburgh. Spend a few hours exploring the vessel to see where the Princes spent their summers and world leaders and celebrities were once entertained.

Watch a Highland dance or two

There’s nothing quaint about the Scottish pastime of a Highlands dance. Walk into a pub and be enlivened by the many folk musicians playing fiddles, flutes, drums and accordions all around the Isles. You can watch with your pint or let the driving rhythms take you dancing. Either way, you’ll feel connected to the true spirit of Scotland.

Our top 5 things to do in Scotland

You'll uncover plenty of natural beauty and human history on our vibrant trips to Scotland. Stroll Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile, climb the rugged hills of Arthur's Seat and journey through the Highland wilderness.

Edinburgh Castle

The ancient walls of Edinburgh Castle have been touched by soldiers, kings, queens and even the odd pirate. Immerse yourself in Scottish history, gazing at crown jewels worn by Mary Queen of Scots and wooden doors vandalized by prisoners of war. Don’t miss the 1 o'clock gun that rings out over Edinburgh.

National Museum of Scotland

This unassuming Victorian building is brimming with history of Scotland and the world. Discover the wonders of nature, art, design, science and technology through this diverse collection. Spend a day wandering from room to room, never running short of things to learn.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Enjoy a captivating lesson in life and expression at Kelvingrove. Delve into natural history, arms and armor, fine art and everything between. From the Spitfire plane hanging from the ceiling of the west court to the collections of the Glasgow Boys and Salvador Dali in the east, this space will leave you spellbound.

Best museums in Scotland

Spend hours and days fascinated by the stories held in the museums of Scotland. Trafalgar's picks will prove these enthralling institutions shouldn't be saved for a cloudy day.

Originally served as a hearty meal to Scots on long journeys across Highland hills and heather-clad moors, the nation still loves Haggis. And with its rustic flavor and peppery kick, you will too. Have a taste and wash it down with a wee dram.

Cullen Skink

Hailing from the town of Cullen, this soup was made to warm the cockles of weary fishermen. Hence it’s made thick, creamy and comforting. With chunks of velvety leeks, potato and smoked fish, this smooth and flavorful meal is not to be missed.

Scottish Whisky

The Scottish isles are home to one of the world's most revered spirits - whisky. Speyside malts, smokey Islay drams and smooth blends can all be found here. Try it in a local pub or an award winning distillery. Either way, there's nothing quite like the taste of Scotch in the land where it was made.

Best food in Scotland

If it seems like Scottish cuisine is designed to warm your insides, that’s because it is. Come sunshine or rain, the dishes you'll enjoy on our trips are just another reason to love Scotland.

What to pack for Scotland

People packing for a tour

Walking shoes

Something comfortable and flat, with grip. There's a lot of exploring to do and the hills of Scotland are just as abundant in the cities as they are in the countryside.

Something warm

Even in the height of summer the Scottish night air has a bite. To make the most of your Scotland adventure, bring along a quality coat or jacket.

Woollen socks

A couple of pairs of woollen socks will serve you well in Scotland. They're warm and thick but surprisingly light to carry, perfect for protecting feet from long walks or the country’s beloved cold stone floors.

Prepare to sample the finest whisky distilleries around with hydralytes. Enjoy a tipple or two or three and you will still be fresh for adventures the following morning.

When planning a trip to Scotland, plan to pack less. Leave some space to bring home some of their specialties like shortbread for friends and cashmere for yourself.

Coach Tours of Scotland

Sit back and relax on a mini-coach tour of Scotland. Let a professional local guide do the driving, and focus all your attention on the gorgeous scenery all around you.

Nearly all-inclusive coach tours of Scotland

When the roadside views are as amazing as they are in Scotland, who can blame you for wanting to let someone else handle the driving? With coach tours of Scotland from Edinburgh, all you need to do is sit back, enjoy the ride and take in the beautiful scenery.

Of course, on a small coach tour in Scotland by Nordic Visitor, you’ll do a lot more than sitting and looking out the window. Nordic Visitor’s guided small group tours in Scotland are perfect for folks who want the comfort and convenience of riding with a local expert guide, while making some new friends along the way in a group of maximum 16 people.

Unlike many coach tour companies in Scotland, we use smaller vehicles to ensure better navigation of narrow, winding country roads, like the stunning Quiraing Pass on the Isle of Skye. With the flexibility of both the small group and the small bus, you’ll enjoy more visits to castles, ancient standing stones, quaint villages and places you’d never even know about without the guide’s local knowledge.

Looking for mini-coach tours of the Scottish Highlands? Or perhaps you’re interested in being driven around on a whisky distillery tour of Scotland? For the best coach tours in Scotland that cover the country’s top highlights, look to the local experts at Nordic Visitor. Our friendly staff in Edinburgh have travelled extensively on self-drive holidays and coach tours around Scotland, so our handcrafted routes, personally-reviewed accommodations and tried-and-tested group activities are sure to please.

Explore the city’s Old Town as you wish, with visits to the Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile and Princes Street Gardens. Want more time in Edinburgh? Ask us to add extra nights before or after your guided tour!

Our Scotland coach tour routes vary according to number of days, but all of our guided small group tours cover some part of the Scottish Highlands. Experience iconic sights like Eilean Donan Castle, Loch Ness, Glencoe valley, Loch Lomond, the snowy peak of Ben Nevis, Stirling Castle, the Isle of Skye and more. You’ll also see plenty of landscapes that look ripped from a Harry Potter film or Outlander episode.

Want to try authentic Scottish cuisine and whisky? You’re in luck: guided small coach tour packages in Scotland include at least one tasting tour of a local whisky distillery along with a number of included meals at cosy country inns. For whisky enthusiasts, we even have a special Scotland whisky coach tour focused on tastings at some of the finest distilleries in areas like Oban, Isle of Mull and the Highlands.

Want a private tour for just yourself and family or friends? We can also arrange custom-made privately guided tours , with vehicles to accommodate any group size.

Highlights of Scotland, October 2020

A very good tour with a great information pack..

A very good tour with good information and map with highlighted attractions and a very good information pack.

Express Scotland, October 2019

Absolutely love working with nordic visitor.

I have already traveled twice with Nordic Visitor, and am already in the process of booking a third trip! Absolutely love working with you! Every bed and breakfast we stayed at was amazing. The hosts were so welcoming with great suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The rooms were very comfortable, and the amenities were awesome! 

Express Scotland, May 2019

Explore family ancestry.

We went to explore family ancestry, I inquired with several different companies and Sarah was the only one to reply with information, and stops in the itinerary on the Clan Comyns. She did her homework to plan our trip.

Scottish Highlands Classic, October 2019

Wonderful accommodations.

The accommodations mapped out for us were wonderful. All were 3star or higher rated B&Bs and they were all centrally located to attractions and historic landmarks we wanted to see. That fact alone made it really easy for us to walk or drive A short distance to sites or activities we were interested in doing on the trip, which made the experience very enjoyable. Both taxi services hired to pick us up and drop us off from the airport we're amazing as well. The taxi driver picking us up was especially helpful and even gave us a brief driving tour of Edinburgh the first day we arrived.

Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, September 2020

The best holidays we have ever had.

Superb!! Our first ever 'touring' holiday and right up there with the best holidays we have ever had. We are not youngsters, so this was taken on with a bit of trepidation, but were soon put at ease by the sheer quality of accommodation provided along with the superb travel itinerary book (yes, it's that thick and detailed) and map. Even though we often used local recommendations, these became our trusted companions throughout the week - and are now valued reminders of an exceptional holiday - Thankyou Nordic Visitor, we will be back!

Crystal, United States

Classic scotland & the orkney islands, september 2019, wonderful experience.

Thank you so much! Our experience in Scotland was wonderful! We felt prepared for what to expect, particularly as it relates to making dinner reservations on the islands we visited. The food recommendations were excellent , the accommodations were cozy, and the recommendations for sites and attractions greatly appreciated. A special thank you to Agne who answered all my inquiries, helped us make dinner reservations and confirmed all our dates and meeting times - she was a pleasure to work with!  

Scottish Highlands, May 2019

Worry-free travel experience.

Our agent, Agne, did a wonderful job dealing with us. All questions were answered and her trip planning resulted in one of our most enjoyable and worry free travel experiences.

Classic Scotland, September 2020

Excellent trip.

All accommodations were excellent with very friendly hosts. Car rental pickup was very quick and easy and car was excellent. Rebecca was excellent, she took all our requirements and made a personal tour for us. Her attention to detail was excellent.The documents at our first hotel were excellent especially the map with everything marked on for us.

Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, June 2019

A positive experience, beginning to end.

This tour was a positive experience for us, beginning to end. The planning by Nordic Visitor was complete, thoughtful, and worked flawlessly. Scotland was stunning and most interesting - we just wish we had more time. To Nordic Visitor: Great Job! We'll be back!

John and Kathryn

Grand tour of scotland, june 2019, everything ran as smoothly as clockwork.

My husband and I wanted to hire a car and travel extensively throughout northern Scotland which included the Orkney Islands, and the other beautiful islands in far northern Scotland. From the day we contacted Agne Dobrovolskyte at Nordic Visitor, everything ran as smoothly as clockwork! Agne knew exactly what we wanted;  all the Bed & Breakfast places she booked on our behalf right throughout Scotland were absolutely perfect, centrally located near all facilities, managed by wonderful, friendly hosts and included delicious, plentiful breakfasts. The car Agne booked for us was reliable and the perfect (compact) size to negotiate the narrow, single lane roads you frequently experience in northern Scotland (especially on the northern Scottish islands). Agne gave us the benefit of her experience of Scotland with wonderful suggestions on what to see and do - suggestions and advice that we were glad we followed. Everything Agne did and organised, made our road trip throughout the beautiful country of Scotland a wonderful and memorable experience. For anyone wanting to deal with a high-achieving travel company that is absolutely professional and efficient, we highly recommend Nordic Visitor and, in particular, Agne Dobrovolskyte, who proved to be a very competent, friendly and knowledgeable travel agent. Thank you, Agne!"

Gary, Canada

Scottish highlands & isle of skye - winter, november 2019, the accommodations, destinations and car were great.

The tour went very well. All the accommodation was excellent. We are very pleased with all the arrangements and communications that we had with Rebecca. The accommodations, destinations and car were great. Our only wish is that we would have had more time at some of the locations. We had a hard time packing it all in!

Express Scotland, July 2019

Nothing but great words to say about nordic visitor.

We were thrilled with all of our accommodations. All hosts/hostesses were very friendly and we felt very welcomed. The rental car service was also very good and thorough. And we felt as though everyone had a good working relationship as the businesses had nothing but great words to say about Nordic Visitor so we felt good that everyone was working together to make our visit a great one!

Grand Tour of Scotland, August 2019

Excellent information and documents.

Having used another tour company for Ireland and England just before this section of our trip I can say with one hundred percent truth that your information and documents were excellent! When we saw a paper map was included and daily ideas for the itinerary we were so happy. We didn't need electricity or wifi, we could just look at the map! An overall view like that was so much easier to use.

5 Day Skye & Highland Fling Tour

5 Day Skye & Highland Fling

"We were a group of young Slovenians travelling to Scotland with a wish to see the nature and all beautiful things Scotland has to offer. After talking about it for a long time, we decided to find a tour that would offer just that and for a normal amount of money. Macbackpackers were just what we were looking for and more. First of all, Branka. The most amazing tour guide. Her energy, humour, vibe and storytelling was out of this world. The way she told us about the legends, myths, folklore and history was inspiring and it made everyone believe that Scotland truly is a place of magic. She made us laugh, she sang with us and overall we all felt pretty darn happy to be on the tour with her. The pace was just right, we saw everything and more, at least as much as one would expect for a 5-day tour of a pretty big place like Scotland. The hostels were amazing. Loch Side Hostel was located right at the coast of Loch Ness which was super cool. Isle of Skye hostel was insanely adorable and so was the Oban hostel. The activities planned for the tour were inclusive so anyone can find themselves in each activity. Branka’s driving was so calming and even though we all stared out the windows to take the amazing scenery in, we couldn’t resist a nap on the bus. Overall 100/10 experience and I would recommend this tour to everyone wanting to see the best of Scotland and experience the magic that it has to offer!"

"A wonderful and impressive 3-day tour, traveling through the forests and mountains, alongside rivers and pools, accompanied by Scottish folk music and tales. Our tour guide, Neil, is fantastic at telling the stories and history of Scotland with an intriguing tone. A very enjoyable journey and I will never forget."

"The tour covered so much ground in such a short period I felt a bit rushed more often than not. It would have been good to have some extra time at places sdo perhaps same activities just spread over a few extra days. Otherwise I had a fantastic time, everything was well organized and the driver and tour director were friendly and professional. Loved it."

"Amazing tour which I can highly recommend to anybody who wants to see a glimpse of Scotland and the Highlands but has little time. Our main driverguide Rich was absolutely fantastic, a wealth of knowledge, entertaining us with cool stories about Scotland without ever boring us. Cool dude! Also the driverguides to be, Jaime and Dan, were great, providing us with even more local insights from Skye/Oban and were really cool to hang out with. I would do this tour anytime again (or maybe a longer one next time). Stunning landscape, lots of cool stops at hidden gems, so every hour we would stop at least once. Morag's lodge at Loch Ness was compfy too and they sell superb meals for just under 9 GBP. Even if the weather rainy, as you're moving on their yellow busses, you can see the Scottish Highlands pass by outside while being in the warmth - and after the stops your stuff will dry quickly as they have heating next to the seats :) Once Corona-virus allows you to travel again, look for no further than Haggis Adventures if you want to explore Scotland!"

"the tour was fantastic. you have seen and experienced so much. a dream for every Scotland fan"
"Was a fantastic trip and managed to fit a lot into a three day tour! Really enjoyed it and definitely came at the perfect time. Hope to come back to Skye again as so much I probably didn't see. The tour guide Neil was superb and his knowledge of the area and the tales told on the journey elevated this trip. Thanks for a perfect January break!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed our Bonnie Scotland tour. The location was beautiful and the trip well organized. Our tour guide, Gavin, was simply the best. Loved the experience!!"
