Sharing Scotland with visitors is my passion, it gets me out of bed, even on the days our skies are not so blue.  It’s fair to say after 30 years of exploring Scotland I’ve accrued my own extensive ‘guide book’ of wonderful places to go, hidden gems you might not read about in guidebooks and fascinating people to meet along the way. 


I’m an accredited Blue Badge guide for Scotland’s Tourist Guide Association, which means I’ve gone through some pretty stiff training and made it through the other side. 


Creating unique itineraries and delivering those experiences brings me immense joy. You might only ever come to Scotland once, or you may be on a pilgrimage. Whatever the circumstances, let’s make your time here extraordinary. 


When you choose my services, rest assured your comfort is a priority.  I’m a driver guide and use my own 7-seater vehicle maintained to an exceptionally high standard. 


Let me take the stress out of planning your holiday. I’ll make the necessary arrangements on your behalf, including; booking great quality accommodations, restaurants, attractions, theatres and venues, the list goes on.


There are so many incredible places to visit in Scotland, and it’s amazing what we can do and see in a few days, or even just a day. I’ll work around your needs. 


Here’s a snapshot of my services and the benefits for you:


→ Personalised itinerary planning based on your needs and motivation for visiting. The itinerary provides the essentials of where we’ll visit and what we’ll see, though I like to apply flexibility in case of adjustments  

→ My guarantee to you as a fully accredited Scottish Blue Badge Tour Guide with exceptional knowledge of Scotland

→ Private vehicle; LWB Ford Tourneo. Latest model People Carrier with privacy glass, leather interiors, professional fitted PA system for crystal clear commentary, fully air conditioned and heated. Complimentary hospitality basket 

→ Wheelchair accessible tours and vehicle if required.


Rest assured you’re in good hands, and it’s my sincere intention to create the tour of a lifetime for you. Discover the incredible places to visit on a multi day tour  or full day tours  in Scotland?

We had a really good day learning a lot about Scottish history, whisky, etc. We went on a tour with Ian Linn. We will strongly recommend him to others searching for a guide and driver for a tour. I am planning a tour in October with another group and will contact Ian to help me arrange it.

Absolutely five star. Knowledgeable and personable. Please add our names to the long list of folks singing the praises of Ian Linn. We had the pleasure of a half-day walking tour of Edinburgh on 17th June. Absolutely five star. Knowledgeable and personable, a pleasure with whom to spend time. He definitely should get a raise! Since Scots were the first to do cloning, perhaps that’s a solution! Again, thanks, Ian.

My husband and I returned a little over a week ago from our trip to Scotland. It was outstanding due to our tour guide , Ian Linn. Ian has incredible knowledge of the history, geography and culture of this beautiful land. Ian’s wit makes his tours not just interesting, but really fun. If you are looking for a fantastic tour guide through Scotland, don’t hesitate to choose Ian Lin.
