At McKinlay Kidd, we’re passionate about Scotland. We have stayed in, eaten at, driven through, sailed across and visited everything we recommend. That means we can design exceptional tailor-made Scottish holidays. Let us inspire you.
What’s your idea of the perfect holiday in Scotland? The suggestions on this website can be combined in countless different ways, and we always relish the challenge of arranging a tailor-made holiday in Scotland just for you. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.
Nothing is more memorable than a unique Scottish holiday experience. Touring the Scottish Highlands in a classic car, catching your own seafood lunch, staying in an historic Scottish castle...believe us, these are dreams which can come true.
Why not make a virtue of Scotland’s variety? On these touring breaks, you’ll take in so many sights, sounds and experiences it could leave your head spinning! But we think you’ll find there’s no more delightful way to overwhelm your senses.
Skye..Orkney..Arran..Mull? Rugged, gentle, romantic, wild, remote, welcoming – the Scottish islands can be all of these things and more. Arriving by ferry is always a thrill, and no-one knows more about exploring these wonderful self-contained worlds than we do.
