Historic sites

There is no better place to take a crash course in Scotland’s turbulent history.

We’re perfectly located for exploring the wider area and all that Central Scotland, Edinburgh, Glasgow and The Trossachs have to offer.

Explore Scotland and more

Highland Experience Tours offer small and friendly tours which allow you the opportunity to get personal attention, explore Scotland beyond the famous sights, make friends and have a great time! You will be able to enjoy experiences that are unavailable to larger groups and even stay in wonderful little places all across Scotland. 

Big Kids and Small

Situated at the foot of Holmehill, there are many paths through the mature woodland for you to enjoy as well as some great climbing trees.  The local play parks are within a couple of minutes walk and are well maintained.

The Great Outdoors

There’s too much to mention; gentle walks, scaling Munros, fly fishing, mountain bike trails or challenging golf courses, we can guarantee there’s something for everyone.

And then there’s the Whisky Distilleries, Highland Games, Comedy Festivals, Farmers Markets …
