We love …

our personally guided whisky tours, visiting as many Scottish distilleries as you wish  Our guests tell us our tours are an experience rather than a holiday!  We want you to enjoy the very best of Scottish hospitality from the moment you arrive to the moment you (sadly leave) – you drink, we drive!

Who Are We

Paul – owned and ran advertising agencies before tourism. Having discerning taste buds and a headful of useful and (not useful ) information. He is incredibly passionate about Scotland making him an ideal driver/guide. (He even make’s history interesting, says Liz!). He knows where and how to host impromptu whisky tastings – that’s what’s great, we always have a surprise for you!

Liz the organiser and brains, finally a few years ago she stopped making hot toddies and realised whisky’s true worth . She now appreciates the ideal dram and if it passes her“whoo hoo” test, it’s a winner! Drink with her and you’ll understand, she still hates peat – but continues to try!  Bless!

They are a dynamic duo best of friends and superb hosts – you’ll soon feel like friends or family.  The Scots are renowned for their warmth and friendliness and both share a love for the Scotland and a passion for fabulous drams.  Arrive a guest, go home a friend!

Paul and Liz are an absolute joy to communicate with. Both of them are professional, knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and awesome with communication. It was because of Paul’s demeanor via email, that I chose you guys for our tour. The way you and Paul communicate is vastly different from the other 7 companies that I contacted . 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! The price was great! You scheduled an incredible tour according to the budget that I gave.  Thank you Whisky Tours McLean Scotland for creating and delivering the Tour of a Lifetime!! I HIGHLY and STRONGLY recommend this company for your Scotch whisky tour!! Thank you again for everything!

Marcus grew up in Glasgow, he spent 30 years in the finance industry in London, before returning to his beloved Scotland.  He now lives in Carnoustie, famous for golf, on the east coast.  Marcus, like Liz, has trouble with peaty whisky, his “go to whiskies are” Aberlour and Balvenie and all time favourite (when he can afford it) Dalmore King Alexander.  Marcus loves Speyside but takes whisky tours all over Scotland.

Mark has driven large coach and small personal tours  for us in Scotland and Ireland, a true Scot living in Belfast. Mark likes the Game of Thrones tours. He was a soldier in Belfast and offers the best city tours, going to places even taxis don’t!. He transferred to the RCT when his British Army Regiment joined the Gordon Highlanders. Former Infantry at Queens Own Highlanders, he hails originally from Speyside, so he knows his way around whisky distilleries, he should do, his dad worked in one and has family live in Speyside!

Alastair working for whisky tours

Alastair, a retired Forensic Scientist lives in Broughty Ferry, a historic seaside resort on the east coast of Scotland.  Alastair loves working with us and in addition to drinking peaty whisky (Lagavulin and Laphroig especially) he has cycled around most of Scotland. He is a keen “munro bagger” – a munro is a Scottish mountain, with an elevation of more than 3,000 feet (914 metres) – you ‘bag’ one by reaching the summit. Alastair happily came out of retirement to work with us, he’s a very relaxed chap and a personal friend for over 20 years.
