Longer Tours


Michael can arrange to take you to the Highlands & Islands for a few nights – offload all your luggage and bags at Pilrig House, then let the adventure begin. We have lots of insider accommodation tips and recommendations, to suit every budget, should you wish to hit the road to the majestic wilderness areas of Scotland and the stunning Hebdidean islands, for example!

Many of our guests return year after year, from the US and Canada in particular - and have come to realise that Michael's driver service is an exceptional bonus in helping them see parts of Scotland that are inaccessible by larger coach tour or train. They tend to book Michael to take them on sub-tours of the 'real' Scotland - with Pilrig House as their base. For example, he can drive you on the smaller single-track roads to many of the Outlander locations en route to the Isle of Skye, perhaps stopping at a famous whisky distillery en route? After a night or two on Skye, he can drive you back to Edinburgh, after another night or two's stay in the stunningly beautiful Torridon region - incorporating some of Scotland's most scenic photographic stops, lunch, a boat trip? This is just one of hundreds of ideas you may have about where you want to see when you come to Scotland and which can be realised with Michael guiding you.
