Following the latest Covid-19 government guidance, comprehensive risk assessments and full consideration to the safety of our guests, we would like to reassure you that when restrictions are lifted, we are ‘Ready to go!’

Your experience has always been our top priority, be it the places you visit, the subjects we focus on or your utmost safety. With this mind we have a number of new measures in place to ensure your safety at this time – without comprising your trip of a lifetime.

Including a ‘sneeze screen’ in our luxury 4×4, hand sanitiser in every door pocket and your own personal North Coast Explorer masks, we hope to make your journey with us a positive experience whilst leaving you with an abundance of memories and knowledge from the stunning North Highlands to last beyond your holiday.

In addition, we are accredited with the UK-wide Tourism Industry Standard and Consumer Mark – ‘We’re Good to Go’. This represents the fact that we are adhering to the Government and Public Health safety guidelines and have successfully completed a Covid-19 Risk Assessment to confirm that everything is in place for us to conduct our tours safely.


If you are in any doubt as to whether it’s worth travelling to the far north to visit the beautiful North Highlands or, indeed, if it is worth investing in a private tour guide to show you around, can we recommend that you read a recent article appearing on the website of Scottish Field Magazine!

Early in October 2020, we were delighted to welcome Stephanie from Scottish Field who journeyed with us over four days to discover what the far north east corner of Scotland has to offer. Focussing on the area of Caithness, part of the now famous North Coast 500 route, as well venturing inland to experience the true ‘Heart of the North Highlands’, Stephanie shares her experiences in this latest article.

From historical sights and distilleries to meeting some of the locals, you will see that she describes the opportunity of ‘treading new paths as a privilege’ and recognises ‘there are things I would never have seen or been aware of without the help of Rob and Sally-Ann’.

Many of us have, over recent times, discovered more of our national country than we may have done previously. Perhaps it is now time to discover the ‘far north’ and as Stephanie did ‘sit back and relax right from the word go’.


Do you know someone who is holidaying in the Highlands? Struggling to find the right present for that special celebration? A North Coast Explorer Tour could be just the answer – providing a memorable experience tailor-made for the person or couple in question. We aim to make all our tours enjoyable, insightful and a day to remember.
