All of our tours are designed for small groups of a maximum of 12 people  in order to take
advantage of the many different kinds of accommodations, eateries and sights that would
not be available to larger groups. You may find yourself staying in a lovely city guest house,
a small country house hotel, a centuries old coaching Inn, a Victorian seaside hotel, a
secluded farmhouse and even possibly in a wee Scottish Castle all in the same visit! You will
find yourself dining in unique tearooms, cozy pubs, old coaching inns, seaside restaurants
or out to a Highland Dinner and Show, Irish Music Night, A Castle Afternoon Tea or to a
Irish or Welsh Medieval Banquet.

I am 71 and traveled as a single using the single supplement.  I did
the Scottish Dream Tours "Highlands and Islands" with 7 others.  
The tour itself was 16 days.  I went to Glasgow a few days early to
get used to the time difference.  I stayed at the hotel where the tour
started so I didn't have to move.  I had done that on previous trips
and found that to help a lot.  I live in WA State so time difference is
8 hours.
My mobility problems consistent primarily of stamina and
uncertainty with rugged terrain.  I found that I had no problems
whatsoever on the trip.
The tour group is very small and individual needs are looked after.  
The tour pace is relaxed and unpressured.  All the details are
managed by the guides so you can simply relax and enjoy the
fabulous trip. Shannon and Mario handle the baggage so you don't
have to worry about your suitcase. We traveled in a 16 passenger
van with plenty of room for each person; the van was easy to get in
and out of.  They always made sure that the van was as close as
possible to wherever we were stopping.  I always had access to the
van if I wanted to stay on it for short periods or come back before
the rest of the group.
The accomodations were in terrific small hotels or bed/breakfasts
all of which had great atmosphere and were well-appointed.  You
get the feeling of the Scottish culture as you journey thru the
countryside.  Great scenery, great people, great food. Shannon has
really perfected the itinerary for each of his tours giving you
maximum exposure to the area you're in.
At first glance, you might feel the price is higher than some of the
other big tours on the big buses with big groups of people.  
However, you quickly learn that the price includes all the lodging,
at least 2 of 3 meals each day (often all 3), entrance fees at
attractions, ferry fares, etc. and the opportunity to have a relaxed
in-depth experience.  I would certainly say that you receive
excellent value for the price.
I would highly recommend the Scottish Dream Tours to you.  I
would be happy to answer any other questions that you might have.  
Shannon has put a great deal into his tours.  You'll have the trip of a
lifetime!

conducts each of our tours personally in order to bring you the very best that Scotland,
Ireland, Wales and England have to offer. We usually offer each tour just once a year and we
only offer around 12 scheduled tours a year which fits perfectly into the toruing season in the
Britsh Isles and Ireland. We specialize in small local and family owned accommodations,
quaint tearooms, amazing castles, glorious gardens, cozy pubs, fascinating history, local folks
and flavor, picturesque villages and spectacular scenery. We believe there is no better way to

scenery, lovely villages and the warmhearted people who inhabit them. We pride ourselves in

Our very best in small group tours to Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England

We love taking advantage of the local theatre, highlands nights and impromptu music
sessions which is very easy when we have such small groups. We might take a side road off
on a new adventure or help someone find an ancestral home if the opportunity presents
itself. We love to have you meet the locals as often as possible and try to arrange a unique
experience on each tour to see how people live and interact within their community. We
often come across sheep dog demonstrations or a shepherd moving his flock down the road
with the help of the dogs. We also try to include some kind of wildlife experience into each
tour with puffin cruises and wildlife safaris.
