About the Company
Hi there, my name is Grant and I'm the owner of Scotland Day Tours, thanks for visiting our website and taking an interest in our personalised day tours. I was born in Edinburgh and have lived there most of my life.
I started the company in early 2016, with the aim to make sure you have the best personalised day tour while in Scotland, with so many great locations to see and visit I know you'll be spoiled for choice.
One of my passions is to explore Scotland and showing the countries beauty of to others. I hope that you will join me in discovering the ever changing Scottish countryside.
I've travelled all over the world ranging from New Zealand, the bush of Australia, the jungles of South and Central America, but it's Scotland where I've always called home.
My interests include photography and walking to stunning viewpoints. All the photographs contained on the website have been taken by myself, including some from tours. When on a tour the camera always comes with me as Scotland is always a country of surprises. Even when the clouds are covering the highest mountain peaks, the atmospheric views are still enchanting.
With so many wonderful scenic locations, it is difficult to list them all, however I've listed a few of my favourite places in Scotland, why not come along and see them for yourself.
From either direction, the drive approaching and then through Glen Coe is one of my favourites and the weather plays a significant part, when sunny the mountain peaks look majestic. Even in the middle of summer when the threatening clouds gather, the entrance to Glen Coe looks foreboding and menacing. The 'weeping' Glen has an interesting past, why not join us to enjoy the scenery and learn about the history.
Glen finnan viaduct and monument
Only a short walk from the Glenfinnan car park is the majestic views of Loch Shiel and Glenfinnan Monument, turn around and you have the viaduct and the Glenfinnan. We try to time our visit to incoporate the crossing of the viaduct by the 'Harry Potter' steam train. After the trains have past, the piece and tranquility of this area is always a treat to behold.
When construction started in 1882 and completion followed in 1890, the Forth Bridge is a marvel of Victorian engineering. It is now rightly designated as an UNESCO world heritage site. The sheer dimensions and beauty of the construction whether first thing in the morning or lit up in the evening, makes a visit worthwhile. From the viewpoint the other Forth crossing can be seen.
