TAKE A MINI-COACH TOUR IN SCOTLAND
If you want to let someone else handle the driving in Scotland, a guided small group tour by Nordic Visitor is the way to go. Unlike standard bus tour holidays in Scotland, we use comfortable mini-coaches that are adept at navigating the narrow Highlands roads. What’s more, all mini-coach touring holidays in Scotland operated by Nordic Visitor include quality accommodation, such as Highland lodges that we’ve personally selected, along with a select number of gourmet dinners in rural locations.
Travelling on a singles holiday in the UK? A mini-coach tour holiday in Scotland is a great choice, as all Nordic Visitor tour groups are limited to 16 travellers, ensuring a cosy atmosphere for more personal interactions with fellow adventurers and your guide. Keen on doing a Scotland whisky tour holiday? All Nordic Visitor Guided Small Group Tours include visits to a distillery, and we even offer focused whisky holiday tours in Scotland for those dedicated to sampling different brands of “ the water of life”.
Have something more particular in mind? We also offer fully customisable Privately Guided Tours, in which you’d have your very own local guide drive you around Scotland’s top sights in a comfy 4x4 vehicle.

WHAT TO SEE IN SCOTLAND ON A DRIVING HOLIDAY
Below are a few of our Scotland holiday tour ideas for motorists, using Edinburgh as the starting point.
Under a week: To see the most famous Highland attractions, give yourself at least 4 - 5 days to travel around the Inverness, Fort William and Loch Lomond areas. Want to visit some islands? Then plan to spend at least 6 days to drive through the Highlands to the Isle of Skye or -- if you’re a whisky fan -- the Oban and Isle of Mull area. On this express route of Scotland, you can visit sights such as Loch Ness, Glen Coe, Eilean Donan Castle and more.
1 - 2 weeks: With a Scotland driving holiday lasting around 10 days, you can extend your Highland trip to Scotland’s beautiful east coast, including the city of St Andrews and the “Castle Trail” region of Aberdeenshire. In 12 days or more you can also drive along the scenic North Coast 500 route and visit the Orkney Islands or travel to the tranquil isles of the Outer Hebrides. With over 2 weeks you could even add a trip to the far-flung Shetland Isles.
