“First time we used MCLEANSCOTLAND  They were honest about what we would be able to see. It truly was a vacation of a lifetime. It was everything we dreamed about! And we saw as much of Scotland that we could possibly fit in 10 days. Forward five years – we decided to do a whisky tour with them. They did all the driving, so many distilleries, so many laughs, drank so much whisky and had the time of our lives. Our whole trip was truly magical!  There are not enough stars to give Liz and Paul the rating they deserve.  Nicole Miller, USA The best tours ever!! Absolutely perfect.” ❤️

Who We Are

Paul – owned and ran advertising agencies before realising his expertise lay in tourism. He has a wealth of information and his passion for Scotland and its’ history make him an ideal driver/guide (for up to 8 guests on a personal tour) or tour manager for 8 or more on a bespoke group tour. He even make’s it interesting, says Liz!  On the other hand Liz has a background in marketing, is the organiser and perfect hostess, she doesn’t go on all the tours but when she does … it’s memorable! Just don’t ask if Bonnie Prince Charlie and Robert the Bruce were friends!   A dynamic duo and best friends, both with a wicked sense of humour and share a passion for whisky which they regularly research for their ledgendary whisky tours!
