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.

ALL TOURS ARE BESPOKE PRIVATE TOURS but here are some examples of tours that I’ve run in the past that might give you some inspiration to decide what you would like to do on our special day.

My media commitments mean that at present I only offer two options.

Once or twice a year I offer a GROUP TOUR for up to 25 people on a planned route with hotels, outings planned and scheduled.

For those who prefer a personal experience I’d love to offer a BESPOKE PRIVATE TOUR based on your interests. I can only offer a limited number of dates each year, but please feel free to enquire. I’d love to show you around Scotland if we can make the dates work.

Bespoke Tours

Would you like to put together your own plan for a tour of the sites and sights of Scotland? Fantastic! I’ll make that happen. I have only touched on what Scotland has to offer. You don’t need to be limited to one of the fixed itineraries listed, or to the Perthshire area. I’ll pick you up in a quality vehicle where you are and deliver you to where you want to go. 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.

Group Tour

Bruce has teamed up with his friends at Scotland Folk Tours to put together a fantastic eleven days with a small group of up to 25 people. He’ll take you to some of his favourite places and tell you stories along the way. You’ll enjoy a Scottish stand-up comedy show and a ceilidh and some great food and drink along the way.

Real Macbeth Tour

Discover Macbeth with a short visit to 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. There are options to climb Dunsinnane Hill to the site of Macbeth’s hillfort or visit Scotland’s oldest lending library to see the books that inspired Shakespeare to write the story, or to visit 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 lunch are not included.
