ABOUT US

Walking Tours in Scotland is a small, unique walking tour company built by locals. We are not men standing in kilts rattling off dates of battles. Instead, we pride ourselves on letting you discover Scotland's cities and towns through a local's eyes. Our tours are fun, relaxed and show off local hotspots, as well as being informative. Don't miss out on the best tour of your life! ;)

 

Liv and Jenny founded this company after seeing that Glasgow didn't have a walking tour in early 2017. In 2019, they decided to expand the tours to across Scotland so they could show off even more of beautiful Scotland. In each city, all of our guides are guides because they are passionate about the city and they want to share its beauty with you! We hope to see you on one of our tours soon.

Hi, my name is Shane. I have lived and worked in and around St Andrews for 25 years and love to share my passion for Scottish history, landscape and culture with visitors. They say there are three big surprises in store for those who visit the small town of St Andrews (come
on the tour to find out what they are!) but for me, it’s a place packed with stories and layers of Scottish.

Hello, I'm Jane. My interest in history was nurtured in my very early years. Working in and around Stirling for many years, I became immersed in its dramatic history. I encountered villains, heroes and heroines - ordinary people as well as stars of Hollywood Blockbusters. All this is played out in the very compact space of Stirling Old Town. I can't wait to show you the city I love.

james

st andrews

Hi, I am James. What I love about St Andrews, is that I believe the town is akin to a unique whisky or swatch of Harris Tweed. It has within it innumerable strands, patterns, characters and evocative images. I look forward to sharing them with you, in order that St Andrews becomes much more than an Auld Grey Toun on one of our town tours.
