Paul and Liz are an absolute joy to communicate with. Both of you are professional, knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and awesome with communication.  The way you and Paul communicate is vastly different from the other 7 companies that I contacted for the tour. The tour schedule was WOW!! So detailed, well planned, organized and thought out. You guys truly listened and tried your hardest to schedule events tailored to our wants and it definitely showed! Once again, totally different from the 7 other companies I contacted.  The price was great! You scheduled an incredible tour according to the budget that I gave. 

Thank you McLean Scotland for creating and delivering the Tour of a Lifetime!! I HIGHLY and STRONGLY recommend this company for your Scotch tour!!  Otto, USA

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!
