Scottish Ancestral Tours


Once the Coronavirus lockdown is over, you may be contemplating becoming an ancestral tourist in Scotland.

Time is always at a premium when you’re visiting the land of your ancestors. It’s never easy to fit in everything that you want to see and do. There’s all the major visitor attractions to see, but then there are also the haunts of your forebears which are very likely to be elsewhere in Scotland.  So as a local, perhaps I can help to optimise your trip ?  As a Scot, I’m passionate about my country, and it is important to me that you see and experience the best of Scotland within the time available and your budget.
