“Arrive as guests and leave as friends”.

Discover a taste of Scotland’s magic in 1 tremendous day

As a local tour company, (we love the area) we are proud of the service we provide and treat all of our guests as friends. We will take your wish list and turn it into reality with a phenomenal day out.  Nothing is too much trouble and our prices are very reasonable.

Wonder at the delightful Haddo House and Gardens – a majestic venue that gives you a glimpse of how the other half lived.

You can sample a wee dram during a distillery visit or stroll around the tranquil Pitmedden Garden (designed in the 17th century French formal style).

Pick your two favourite venues from the selection.

Experience the magic and medieval grandeur of Castle Fraser and stroll around the vast grounds before heading off to the Scottish countryside.

Bennachie offers the most spectacular views from the top (on a clear day).

Although a lot of people have heard of the Highlands, you can experience some of Scotlands open landscape tranquility with some stunning views.

Scotland has beautiful beaches and the north east has its share. Newburgh Beach is a very special place.  This fabulous pristine sandy beach has a large resident colony of seals and the largest eider duck colony in Europe. Humpback and Minke whales as well as dolphin have also been spotted here.

Fyvie Castle (scary place) has everything – armour, weapons, paintings by famous artists, period furniture and ghostly ‘goings on’
