Aberdeenshire Tours

My name is Elizabeth and I am a retired police officer.   On retirement, I worked as a guide for The National Trust for Scotland which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Passionate about meeting new people and telling them about this amazing area, I now run Aberdeenshire Tours. I live and work in the north east of Scotland and am proud to take visitors around this part of my lovely country. Here we have more castles (per acre) than anywhere else in the UK, some of the most famous whisky distilleries in the world, around 100 stone circles, beautiful beaches, stunning scenery with wonderful wildlife and much more. Scotland’s roads can be challenging but as an experienced advanced driver, the comfort and safety of my passengers is paramount.  I will take your holiday wishes and create a bespoke, customised private day tour just for you,  using local knowledge, and taking careful consideration of the various opening times of properties and travelling time involved, you will get the most from your time in the area and a day to remember.  A friendly welcome awaits visitors who will see that there is much to discover across the region.
