We take the frustration and stress out of planning your vacation and offer an authentic trip curated by experts. Through our network we can provide exclusive access to Scottish experiences you cannot get anywhere else.

We do not have a pre-conceived idea of what your trip should be. It all starts with a conversation. From listening to you we then plan your perfect itinerary offering a truly tailor-made vacation.

Leave the planning, organizing and booking to us so you can relax and luxuriate in the best that Scotland has to offer.

“I found that rural Scotland really isn’t very amenable to Yelp/trip advisor. You need a local expert. I really can’t say enough about what an amazing experience it was working with Aeneas and would highly recommend him to anyone traveling to Scotland!”

Aeneas O’Hara

Following a wonderful childhood in the remote highlands of Scotland, I have travelled to over 40 countries, lived in some of the biggest cities and am fluent in French and Spanish. Most recently I spent 3 fantastic years in New York working in FinTech where I took every opportunity to travel through the USA and have visited 25 states so far.

My wife Morgan and I now spend our time between London and Scotland continuously searching for unique experiences to share with my customers.

For the past 20 years I’ve been the go-to expert for friends, clients and colleagues sharing the best places for them to visit on their travels. Coming from a family of travel entrepreneurs and being passionate about exploring new places, it has long been a dream to make this my business.

I look forward to speaking with you and making your trip to Scotland one of the most memorable vacations of your life.
