Our Scotland Tours From Edinburgh

Scotland’s FAVOURITE Tour Company! 

Our smaller group sizes give you an exclusive experience. You’ll see beautiful, remote places, get close to Scottish nature and hear stories about our exciting and fascinating history. All presented by your experienced, Scottish guide. Choose from one of our three  1-Day tours of the Scottish Highlands from Edinburgh, or join us for an unforgettable 3-Day tour of the Isle of Skye, Inverness & the Highlands!


Join our fantastic 3-Day Tour to the Isle of Skye, Inverness and the Scottish Highlands. Enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Isle of Skye, Glencoe and our National Parks, spend 2 nights in Inverness, the ‘Capital of the Highlands’, visit famous movie locations such as the Glenfinnan Viaduct (Harry Potter), Clava Cairns and Doune Castle (Game of Thrones and Outlander) and tour a Traditional Scotch Whisky-Distillery producing one of Scotland’s ‘Classic Malts’.

For those shorter on time, choose from our three 1-Day Tours of the Scottish Highlands, including Scotland’s ONLY Loch Ness and Whisky Distillery day tour, our ‘Highland Lochs, Stirling Castle and Whisky Tour’, or our world famous, original ‘FREE Scottish Highlands Tour’.

Most tour companies are too big to show you Scotland’s little-known spots, but now you can experience the REAL SCOTLAND with The Hairy Coo. We can also arrange a private, bespoke tour for your group (tours available for groups from 5 people, up to 120 people), whether it’s for just a few hours around Edinburgh, or up to 14 days travelling the length and breadth of Scotland.

“This was one of the finest tours I have been on. I have visited Scotland on many occasions and in all honesty get lost more often than not. It was a comforting change to be taken to so many places in one day and also be driven and educated along the way. Our guide for the day Donald “The Don” certainly knew his stuff. I can’t fault this trip and am happy to spread the word and promote the tour. We will certainly be back for more 🙂 ”

– Dave M, Newcastle


“I booked the Hairy Coo’s three-day tour on a whim and it was the best whim of my life! First, my tour guide was John, who was welcoming, engaging, informative, and hilarious! I was a solo traveller but he created a great environment where I was able to interact with him and everyone else on the bus. Second, the views of the Highlands are incredible. I didn’t know a place like this could exist. If you want to get the most out of your trip book this tour! You will not regret it.”

– Barbara, Argentina


“Me and my husband enjoyed our day in the Hairy Coo bus. Donald knows everything there is to know about the scenery, the history and the people involved…We learned a lot about the history of Schotland and he even throws in a personal story every now and then. We loved his sarcastic humour and would recommend this tour to anyone.”

– Lotte T, Amsterdam
