We at Slàinte can't wait to guide you around Scotland

Virtual Tours of Scotland

Due to the current Covid19 Pandemic, we, like other businesses have had to make some very difficult decisions. We have had to furlough our staff for the next few months at least, which will be reviewed at a later date. That leaves Catriona running the shop on her own. This means that there are likely to be delays in our usual response time and we ask for your patience in responding to your queries which Catriona will do as soon as she can.

To support Catriona in this role, we have decided to organise 2 Virtual Tours per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These will be conducted over the Zoom platform where, for a small fee, you can join in on the tour and experience the delights of each excursion from the comforts of your own home. We know that many of you were so looking forward to visiting Scotland this year and although, it will never be as good as the real thing, it is still a great way to enjoy the best that Scotland has to offer. Catriona will also be joined on occasion by a special co-host who will add a little something something to the event. They will be a number of experts in an area, language, history and or have some beautiful musical talents to entertain you all with too.

If you cannot join the tour because of other time committments, you can have access to it, again for a small fee, and Catriona will send you a special private Youtube link. There you can still ask any questions you may have about the itinerary and or any subjects we are discussing. Catriona will be regularly monitoring the comments.

A little information about Catriona: Catriona is a Scottish tour guide and genealogist for the past 7 years. Prior to that she used to run a website dedicated to Scottish tourism, there are few things that she hasn’t toured or covered.

She also runs a group called the Scottish History Police as well in her spare time and is known to have a good ghost story up her sleeve too.

So come away in, join one of the tours, listen in to one of her tales and history casts. Take a wee dram, close your eyes and let her transport you out of the stresses and worries of 2020.

Catriona is also running nightly, free, Facebook and Instagram live “Love from Scotland” chats. The hope is to share a little bit of Scotland, love and laughter.

During these unprecedented times, any support is welcome.

Supporting small businesses in the current situation is more important now than ever!

We understand there is a lot of growing uncertainty going around just now – we still want to offer our customer’s future bookings and give you something to look forward to, without you having to commit fully. Paying a small deposit for a future tour or purchasing a gift card are both great ways to support us while also treating yourself or others!

We are offering full flexibility on tours during this time, and there are no charges for changing dates and our Gift Cards are redeemable for up to 2 years!

Are you or someone else travelling to Scotland in the future?

Show your support by purchasing a Gift Card to use on your future visit to Scotland. Gift cards also are a great way to cheer a special family member up with that they can use when they visit. With one of our cards, you will be able to join a tour with an experienced, friendly, personable small company who have loyal customers coming back year on year!

Gift cards can be used against any of our group tours, our larger 5-night/7-night tours or just one of the one-day tours that we offer. If that was not all, one of the great added benefits is that you do not have to commit until you know your dates.

Is your tour and travel disrupted by CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)?

Please be advised if any of our customers are booked within the next couple of months, and you are worried about your booking, let us reassure you….you will not lose your money! We are rescheduling dates and offering a full 100% credit for your bookings. We, like many others in the Tourism industry, understand the uncertainty and with travel restrictions in place, the frustrations and worry that you will feel right now. We are here to assist and will do our best, that is why we are not only offering the 100% credit but also extending this to cover 24 months! 

We cannot say how long this will last, and we can only follow advice from our Government and the World Health Organisation, but we will be operating as normal as soon as we are safely allowed to do so.

If you have a booking with us and are unsure, please contact us, and we can advise.

Be safe, follow your official government and health professional advice; and we will see you all on the other side. 

We are here for you and Scotland is waiting.
