About Me

My name is Ross Hendrie and I specialise in individually tailored private tours for small groups. My tours not only show you the iconic images of Scotland, but strive to give you a deeper appreciation of the country and culture. I am an owner driver-guide with a Mercedes V-class Sport. This is a high end vehicle allowing up to 6 passengers to experience a driving tour in Scotland in comfort.

I was raised in rural Stirlingshire before my university years took me to Glasgow and Edinburgh. While this gave me a knowledge of central Scotland, it was my love of the outdoors, camping, cycling, and walking, that allowed me to explore the highlands and islands; indulging my interests in Scottish culture, history and wildlife.

My previous career as a geologist and engineer allowed me to work and travel extensively in Asia, Australia, Europe and the USA and I endeavour to use my appreciation of these cultures to build a shared enjoyment of Scotland's.

I am part of a team that has been awarded the prestigious Green Tourism Gold Award for our efforts to ensure tours with us are sustainable and responsible; including a guarantee that driver-guided tours with me are carbon neutral.
