Personalised selection and service

Every one of our accommodation, transport and activity partners has been carefully selected to ensure they share our high standards and ethos of exploring Scotland responsibly.

We conduct extensive research and solicit countless views and opinions before agreeing to work with a partner organisation. Wherever feasible*, we visit properties, try out activities and experiences ourselves and meet and speak with the owners and managers before we include them in itineraries, so you can be sure that your bespoke Tartan Road itinerary consists of the very best places to stay, the most comfortable and convenient ways to get around and the most exciting and interesting activities and experiences available for your budget in the area you're visiting. And of course, we know that you'll have the best people on hand to help you enjoy them to the full.

*Due to COVID-19, on occasion we have been unable to enter certain properties or areas due to the public health restrictions in place at the time of our planned visit. The safety and health of our team comes first, and we will resume visits as soon as it is sensible to do so.


Things can change. We understand - our booking conditions are designed with flexibility in mind.

We require a small up-front deposit of £150 per person to secure your booking. The full balance of your trip cost is not due until 6 weeks before you depart.

If, for reasons relating to the ongoing pandemic, you find that you need to postpone your trip within six weeks of your departure date, please get in touch as soon as you can and we'll still do our very best to help you.
