Meet the Team


“I’ve worked with Highland Experience for over 8 years now. It’s given me the chance to work in an industry I’m incredibly passionate about – travel! I love exploring myself and helping others to experience my home country in the best way possible.

I enjoy creating unique itineraries that take people across the whole of Scotland. I have a special interest in whisky tours (and tastings!) and love to recommend the best places to sleep and eat when touring Scotland. I like to get to know travelers and their interests to ensure we pair them up with the perfect guide for their time exploring Scotland.”


“I worked in tour operations for many years across Europe before deciding to come back home to help share the beauty of Scotland with people from all around the world. I ran a boutique accommodation on the Isle of Skye before joining Highland Experience so have a deep understanding of life in the highlands and islands. I began my time at Highland Experience in their accommodation department before moving to be a driver guide so have first hand experience of the best routes, places of interest and hidden gems as well authentic accommodation options.

I love both arranging private tours and being a driver guide, so I may even take you from initial enquiry to guiding you round the country as you enjoy your own personalised experience of Scotland. I have a keen interest in history, Scottish culture, whisky and anything foodie so I know where to find the best seafood and farm shops…



“Our group of 10 – 5 adults, 3 seniors, one 7 year old and one 23 month old booked three tours to meet our cruise ship – one in Greenock, one in Invergordon and one in S. Queensferry. I communicated in advance with Clare who was most efficient, accommodating and lovely in assisting in customizing our three tours. If you ever have occasion to book private tours in Scotland, do not hesitate to contact Clare at Highland Experience Tours – she will not steer you wrong! She and her wonderful guides went out of their way to make our Scottish tours full of memories we will cherish always… we will book through them the next time we visit without fail!!!”

“I will be the first to admit that I am a demanding customer. . .but these folks came through brilliantly in my estimation from inquiry to booking to actual tour.”
-Ed, Rapid City

“Highlands tour with Highland Experience Tours was one of the best trips we ever had in terms of service. Flawless, professional, friendly… In case you ever plan a private tour, I highly recommend this team, they are wonderful!!!”
