Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Brilliant day out with the family (two kids 9+12) climbing Ben A'an. Kids got to the top with Iain's clever persuasion tactics, and loved it!

Thank you for your review. I love climbing/ hiking, it was a joy to share the day with you. Being persuasive with safety in mind is always my aim. Hope to see you again one day for another hiking adventure.

I can not imagine any way that a driver and guide could do a better job than Iain Denham. He drove us skillfully, hiked with us, was able to recommend sites that fit our tastes and was patient, informative, and warm.

Thanks Iain for our day together. It was a highlight of our trip.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It was a pleasure to provide your tour and take you to some beautiful places. Going for leisurely hikes was fantastic. A long day for all, but time flew by, just the impression of touring Scotland I want to give my guests.

We hired Iain and Bracklinn Bespoke Scottish Tours to drive us from Edinburgh to Fort William, stopping along the way to see the William Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle, and a few other sites along the route.

As a family of 6 visiting Scotland for the first time, we were not sure what to expect from the people, places, or the experience in general. Anyone who has planned for and traveled with a group or family this size knows it is a challenge to find and coordinate all the necessary elements of such a trip. We researched and reached out to dozens of different providers, vendors, and proprietors of various services and accommodations to make our trip a truly magical, once in a lifetime experience that would be among our most treasured family memories. Our family posed an even more unique challenge as our children range in age from 4 to 19 years; so the needs and wants are both broad and diverse.

While everyone we spoke to was friendly and polite, few could provide customizable transportation for a group our size. When we found Iain and Bracklinn Bespoke Scottish Tours, we were immediately impressed with his kindness, responsiveness, knowledge, accommodations, organization, and suggestions. In short, we knew we had found the driver and tour guide for us. However, what we did not know at the time was we had also found a truly exceptional person, ambassador, and friend.

Iain greeted us on time to the minute with a gentle cheerfulness and hospitality that was equally welcoming and comforting. He exuded an air that puts at ease anyone who worries about how trying on others it can be to travel large family with young kids. We knew from first “good morning” this was a patient and kind person who would never make you feel anything but welcome in his car and in his homeland.

Iain’s car was surpassingly immaculate, as if it was purchased just moments before picking us up. Not only was it tidy, it was luxuriously comfortable and clearly well cared for. From the roominess of the seating to the accessibility of the children’s car seat he provided, it was unquestionably prestigious.

All of that and more is undoubtedly essential to note. But what sets Iain apart is Iain himself. He is just one of those people with an infectious charisma that is only elevated by his unpretentious charm. He is a man who clearly has a warm heart and a kind soul.

His knowledge of the areas we visited was extensive and interesting. At no point in our 9 hours together did the conversation feel strained or boring. Even when our youngest was somewhat unruly, he patiently continued when appropriate without missing a beat.

He was flexible to our needs and timing. As he accompanied us on some site tours throughout the day, he enthusiastically provided additional insights and assistance we did not expect but so deeply appreciated.

He took pictures with us, made sure we got to and in our rooms safely, and even helped resolve a small issue with the hotel. Iain is very clearly one of those good souls who is the first to offer a helping hand, not for recognition or reward, but because to him it is just the right and kind thing to do.

Iain was great with all our kids. He stuck the perfect balance of engagement with every age that made them feel important and seen without it feeling awkward and forced as can so often be the case with teenagers. That in and of itself would be worth writing a review, but obviously there was so much more that made our experience with Iain and Bracklinn Bespoke Scottish Tours a priceless part of our family journey.

We learned, we laughed, and we were treated to some truly exceptional sites by a truly exceptional guide.

Throughout the entire process of preparing and during the journey itself, Iain was timely, courteous, and professional, and communicated with quickness and specificity. He did what he said he would do when he said he would do it; an absolute scholar and gentleman.

I could continue trying to encapsulate our feelings here, but even my best efforts feel like banal platitudes as they fail to fully convey what a superior experience this was, and what a superlative person Iain is. Throughout our time in Scotland we learned and heard about many of those who are renowned in this country as “great”, from Robert the Bruce to Alexander, from knights to kings. But for us, such a list will forever remain incomplete without naming Iain, who worthily sits among the pantheon of Scotlands most truly noble sons.

We obviously rank Iain 5 stars, not just because that is what he earned, but because that is all there is to give. In our book he would rank much, much higher.

Iain is the epitome of a true gentleman. My cousin and I were on the walking journey called the West Highland Way and he took us too and from our destinations for several days. We were two women and both of us felt very safe and looked after when we were with him.

He was prompt, dressed sharply and told very appropriate and interesting stories, both personal as well as historical to the area. His wife sent along goodies for our final day.

Iain took what could have been just typical transportation from point A to point B and raised it to a whole new level! Oh, and his vehicle is spotlessly clean!!

We would love to work with him in the future on a return trip to Scotland!

My only advice would be to bring a large tip. He deserves every penny!

We had a great time with Ian - he made terrific choices choosing an itinerary that showcased the charm, history and character of Scotland from castles to highland cows, and he was great and charming company throughout the day. Also very family friendly (and patient!) with three young kids. Highly recommend for day trips in Scotland!

This is my second excursion with Iain and it will not be my last. Had a friend come to town from the states and Iain provided an effortless day out. His knowledge of the area and the ease he provides makes his tours one of a kind.

We were recommended by the hotel this company to go from Glasgow to Ediburg and booked him for a day trip to St. Andrews that weekend. It was great! He shared historical facts along the way to St.Andrews. He stopped by seaside villages to wonder around and take pictures. He was extremely accommodating and flexible to what we wanted to do. He also offered guidance to what to see first and then take it from there. We learned about each others family and cultures. I definitely look forward to booking him when we return to Scotland. Priceless! Thank you so much!
