We were visitors to the North Highlands long before we became residents. Our love for the landscape, culture and heritage pulled us back year after year until we could resist no more. We relocated to Caithness in 2013 and created what would become the only 5 Star private tour company located in the North Highlands .

Now, our knowledge and passion for the region are yours to enjoy as part of our tailored chauffeured tours – designed just for you.

Robert’s passion for the North Highlands is brought to life when he is sharing his knowledge with others. His long-term interest in history and genealogy now seamlessly mixes with local folk tales and clan histories. Add to this his love of the north coast landscape and photography, and he’ll provide you with an enjoyable and informative insight into the North Highlands.

Robert is trained by the University of the Highlands & Islands and accredited as a North Highland Tourist Guide by the Scottish Tourist Guides Association. He is also studying for a BA (Hons) degree in History, Heritage and Culture of the Scottish Highlands.

“We cannot recommend Robert highly enough. He is a superb guide – affable with an incredible width and depth of knowledge of Northern Scotland. From our first contact with Robert, we experienced unequalled service. We said we wanted to view some of the less well known historical sites of Caithness and that is what Robert provided. We visited sites from the neolithic to WW2 and even saw a film crew setting up for a Netflix programme. Robert talked about Scotland as it is today, and learning so much – we wished the day had been longer. (Chris & Jackie, Lincoln UK)
