Thistle Tours Travel

Anail a Ghaidheil, air a mhullach!

We love Scotland and the Highlands, and we love welcoming travellers to these parts of the world to show you places that you wouldn’t normally see.

At Thistle Tours, we have reimagined travel, and if you are ready to travel, then we are ready to welcome you again and invite you to reconnect with Highland nature, wide open spaces and fresh Highland air.

With Scottish Government guidance changed on the 15th July 2020 to allow tourism businesses in Scotland to reopen, Thistle Tours opted for a gentle, considerate and respectful route to our own opening as we are delighted to reopen our doors to bookings and give you confidence that we are running both private tours and small group travels, with all the responsible measures you would expect to see in place.

If you feel the time is right for you to travel again, then we have some important information to share about changes to Thistle Tours usual way of operating and what to expect while you travel with us. We understand that you may be a bit nervous about your trip in the current circumstances, however, we want to assure you that Thistle Tours are well-prepared and ready to give you a fantastic, rewarding and safe Highland Journey.
