Luxury Travel in Scotland
Renowned, for good reason
A Country with so much to offer
Scotland is a bucket list destination for some many, and for very good reason. It is a country of so much variety and fun.
It plays home to an astonishing 8% of Europe's coastline, the country's cliffs, bays, and inlets stretch for 19,000 kilometers.
Edinburgh encapsulates everything you would want in a great city; architecturally beautiful, bursting with culture, and easy to get around, oh one or two great pubs!
The famous highlands offer something totally unique, a real feeling of awe. There is something intangible, yet magical about the highlands. Difficult to explain, yet impossible to forget.
Edinburgh, a city of Nooks & Crannies
Whilst the city is dominated by the towering presence of Edinburgh Castle, it is the narrow closes and the wonderful small squares which are dotted around the city, that make it unique.
The richly historic city is a rabbit warren of mysterious alleyways which connect the narrow angular streets of the Old Town - by-ways that are best explored on foot for an intimate encounter with the heritage, architecture, and charm which makes the city so captivating.
Edinburgh is a city that is as open to new ideas as it is traditional, it's not difficult to understand why so many people from every corner of the globe love it.
With some much to explore, it is vital that you know what you want from Scotland and it will deliver time after time.
Be it history, adventure, architecture, golf, hiking, festivals, or sport, it has it all.
If you can share your client's hopes, we will craft something totally unique which will create the memories that always hope for.
The Epic Highlands
The Highlands stretch
from Fort William in the west, right up the coast by Skye, around the North Coast 500 to Durness and John O' Groats in the far north. It also runs up to Inverness and east out to Elgin, taking in Aviemore and some of the Cairngorms National Park.
Finding the right location for your clients is about knowing what they are looking for.
Do they want to be in the mountains or would they prefer to be in a city like Inverness which is more of a big town than a city!
Would they like to hike and take in a unique off-road experience or some of the many castles?
The Highlands are a treasure trove of exploration. Mountains and Glens, Lochs and Coves. Great accommodation options and lots of great locals to show you around.
Immersion is what makes the Highlands so unique. You can't help but be absorbed.

The Home Of Golf
Scotland is a golfers paradise. Over 100 of the best links golf courses are here.
The original "Home of Golf", St Andrews is on every golfer's bucket list. From East Coast favorites like Carnoustie, Kingsbarns, Royal Aberdeen & St Andrews to Icons of the West Coast like Turnberry, Prestwick, and Royal Troon there is no shortage of options. For many, a trip to the immense Royal Dornoch in the northern highlands is a must or indeed Island hopping on the West Coast to Adrfin on the Isle of Jura or Marchie on the Isle of Islay.
Golf at its finest is close by, no matter where you are in Scotland.
Over the Sea to Skye
The largest of the inner Herbridies, the Island of Skye is 50 miles long.
For such a small place, it really offers a lot, from the beautiful towns of Portree and Dunvegan to the stunning Old Man Sotrr and Neist Point Lighthouse so there is no shortage of things to discover and explore on the Island.
Talisker Distillery is among the oldest in Scotland and some of the best experiences can be found among the small producers who work on the Island.
Skye can be experienced as a day trip, but is best experienced by spending 2 days there.
In The Words Of Others
What they thought
BROOKE LAVERY - LOCAL FOREIGNER
“I love working with Ray and the Gather Ireland team. He is smart, creative, charming, seems to know every human being in Ireland, and has a knack for inspiring the best in people. He can simultaneously dream big and focus on the little details-- and I just trust him.
He also knows how to crack a joke which helps too. We've sent him some very tough-to-impress clients and he's worked his magic and went above and beyond.“
Folklore, Myths & Legends
Over the centuries, Scotland has amassed its fair share of myths and some of the world's most legendary warriors.
From the lesser-known Mester Stoor Worm to the world famous Lough Ness Monster, The Kelpies to the Nine Maids of Dundee, there are lots of myths to be discovered.
Of legends, we speak so freely, so adoringly. Of legends who defended our lands and our honor so gallantly. None more so than William Wallace - Made Famous in "Braveheart". He fought and beat the English.
In modern culture, the tales of Harry Potter are firmly rooted in Scotland. The last books were written in the Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh and the Scotsman Train which travels north along the Glenfinnan Viaduct is widely referred to as "The Harry Potter Train".
Wherever you travel in Scotland, there is a story to discover.
