History Tours

Since 2006 I have been performing comedy shows about Scottish history at Fringe festivals from Edinburgh to Dunedin. I call it educomedy. In 2017 I thought: 'How much better to take people to the places in our beautiful country where these things happened'.

So, rather than talking to a large audience in a room, I’d like to chat to your wee group as we drive around this beautiful country. These tours will not be classroom history lessons, nor stand-up shows, but I hope to keep you entertained, whilst helping you to understand Scotland.

Real Macbeth Tour

Discover Macbeth with a short boat trip on Loch Leven, and a light lunch at Scone Palace, the place of Scottish kingship. Then stop at Dunkeld Cathedral in Highland Perthshire, the power base of King Duncan, nestled on the banks of the Tay. We take the road between Birnam Wood and Dunsinnane made famous by Shakespeare. Finally enjoy a wonderful tour of Glamis Castle to discover how Shakespeare wrongly placed it in Inverness, how Glamis is linked to the real Macbeth and how the story continues to this day. Entry fees and a light lunch are included.

FROM ONLY £94.00per person including lunch and entry fees ( 1-8 people )

5000 Years of History in a Perthshire Day

We’ll go up a moor to a famous battle site, down a strath to a Roman fort, though a glen to a WW2 POW camp before coffee in Scotland’s oldest working distillery. Next climb high to look back on one of the most stunning views in Perthshire, and all before lunch. Lunch on the banks of Loch Tay. Roll back the centuries to visit a Neolithic crannog, then standing stones. Commemorate our most famous regiment, then visit a town key to Macbeth AND Bonnie Prince Charlie. Finally tour of one of the best-preserved relics of the industrial revolution. Entry fees and a light lunch are included.

A Taste of Scotland Tour

Enjoy all that Scotland is famous for in one day. Scotland is the home of Whisky, it’s famous for ancient castles and heroic battles, beautiful highland scenery, fine food drawn from our land and rivers. You can sample all of these as you take a day long luxury private tour. This extra special day includes a distillery tour, a visit to a castle stronghold, good Scottish food and a drive through the Highlands. Each day is tailored to your own preferences.

Just tell me what you’re looking for: distilleries, castles, battle sites, settings from Outlander, scenic views and delightful picnic areas, places associated with figures from history, or a visit to your ancestral home.
