Chauffeured Tours from Edinburgh

An eye for detail and care for our guests is what defines our private tours at Private Chauffeur Scotland starting in Edinburgh.

Day 1

Boath House 
On the first day you will arrive at the luxurious Boath House. Nestled on the Moray Firth coast, this famous hotel has been described as the most beautiful Regency house in Scotland. After years of neglect, Boath House was put on Historic Scotland’s “endangered list” until current owners, Don and Wendy Matheson, bought the property and refurbished it back to its original grandeur. You can expect the same care and attention during your stay, where the hotel’s quality of hospitality is just as revered as its charming surroundings. 

Nairn Golf Club
Soon after your arrival, your chauffeur will escort you to the Nairn Golf Club. Founded in 1887, the famous course has hosted a number of championships and has been ranked 11th in the list of Top 100 Courses in Scotland. With crisp fairways, pristine greens and beautiful coastal surroundings, this stunning course blends Highland character with golfing prestige to provide you with a unique experience. 

Sun Dancer, Bar and Restaurant
After – hopefully – many birdies, a few pars and even fewer bogeys, it will be time for lunch. Located right by the Moray Firth, the Sun Dancer offers an exquisite menu of Scottish classics that range from hearty breakfasts to iconic dinners. Here you will dine in comfort and enjoy the splendid coastal views of the Moray Firth. 

Cawdor Castle & Gardens
Situated five miles from Nairn is the historic Cawdor Castle. Dating all the way back to the 14th century, the castle was initially built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor. It has a gravelly yet fairytale appearance, and also a literary connection in that it was mentioned in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The castle boasts three glorious gardens for you to explore and enjoy the flourishing colours of their many flowers. 

Boath House
It’s already come to the end of the day and so you will spend the remainder of the evening winding down from today’s activities at Boath House. 

Day 2

Boath House
After you’ve arisen from some well-deserved rest, you’ll be welcomed in the morning to a hearty breakfast that will prepare you for the journey ahead. 

Clava Cairns
First on the list of today’s activities is a visit to famous Clava Cairns. Originating as far back as the Bronze Age, this famous prehistoric site was used for burials, first in 2,000 BC and then 1,000 years later.  The cairns provide an insight into the beliefs of Bronze Age society. There are larger and better known prehistoric locations in Scotland but few can exceed their archeological impact in such a beautiful setting. 

Culloden Battlefield
The battle of Culloden is arguably one of the most harrowing in British history. Visiting the battlefield will be both a fascinating and moving experience where you’ll gain a profound insight into the bloody decimation of the Jacobites. Using artefacts from both sides of the conflict as well as fully immersive cinematic visuals, the Culloden Visitor Centre will put you right in the heart of the action and vividly depict the battle that changed the Highlands and Islands forever. 

Lunch at the Golf View Hotel
Giving stunning coastal views of the Moray Firth is the beautiful Golf View Hotel, which is where you’ll be having lunch. Its Hickory restaurant spoils guests with some of Scotland’s best local produce in rustic yet stylish surroundings. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide a panoramic view of the beautiful Highland coast. 

Fort George
After lunch, your next and final trip of the day is a visit to one of Britain’s strongest military fortifications, Fort George. Spreading across 42 acres, the giant military base comprises an army barracks, cannon batteries, ammunition stores, a chapel, a bakehouse and a brewhouse. The military stronghold was initially built with the intention of suppressing any future Jacobite risings. However, by the time the base was built the Highlands had entered a period of calm,  never requiring a single shot to be fired. 

Boath House
After an eventful day of reliving some of Scotland’s most historic chapters, it’s time to return to the Boath House to reflect and wind down on an eventful trip. We will hope you enjoyed your stay and will wish you a safe trip back home.
