About Us

Story about our company

Our tours can be tailored to suit different preferences, mix and match from locations.

Sgùrr Tours is a Tour company based in Inverness the capital of The Highlands and the gateway to all things beautiful and magical, including Lochs, mountains, Glens, castles and to places such as The Isle of Skye, NC500 and around Inverness area and of course an entertaining driver guide!

Our mission
My goal when starting Sgùrr Tours was to create a business where I could offer clients more personal private tours to the Isle of Skye, the west coast of the Highlands, and the Inverness region, and to make sure they enjoy a level of comfort and style not possible on a big bus. Our mission is to make visitors feel special — like they were VIP film stars.

Because I want to give clients the best of the best, I invested in a top-of-the-range Mercedes-Benz V Class Sport vehicle, which can comfortably seat up to 7 passengers. The comparatively small size of the vehicle allows you to ride in style while I pass on my wealth of knowledge about the Highlands. Here is a list of perks you’ll get with an executive tour with Sgùrr Tours:

  • Hotel and Inverness Airport pickup/drop-off
  • Comfortable leather seats
  • Onboard WiFi
  • Complimentary cooled drinks from a 12v cooler
  • Rear-controlled air conditioning for your own comfort
  • A Mackenzie tartan blanket if you want to get cosy
  • USB charging sockets and USB cables upon request for iPhone & Android
  • Professional photoshoot – Photos uploaded to a private online gallery to download and send to printers, we also have the US Clients covered for printing as we have a printing lab in Minnesota for US clients.
  • Chilled champagne upon request (extra charge)
  • Picnic lunch upon request (extra charge)

With a smaller vehicle, it’s possible to go off the beaten track to beautiful places that big buses cannot reach. I can take you away from the normal tourist attractions so you can enjoy the landscape in peace and tranquillity and take photos without hundreds of people standing in the way. There is only so much Photoshop can do!

Because I am also a professional photographer. my other goal in starting Sgùrr Tours was to be able to offer a photoshoot as an added bonus. I can take my camera and portable lights out on the tour to give you a special photo of the most amazing landscapes the Highlands has to offer. You can take the image away with you so you can cherish forever that special moment in our beautiful Highlands. If you want, I can also have your photo printed onto photo paper, canvas, or even aluminium for a very special finish (again, an extra charge applies).

So, our mission is to give you the best of the best and a tour you will never forget!
