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.

I had an amazing trip around Speyside with a friend, trekking the hills and learning about whisky.

Archie is the consummate guide. He sorted everything in advance and made the whole experience a breeze.

He was a font of knowledge and great fun to be with. We had a fantastic trip, which included some soul cleansing Loch treks (Loch Muick is stunning) and visits to multiple distilleries with some great tours (Balvenie in particular).

If you’re looking for someone to take you on a tour of the hills, or on a whisky tour - or a combination of both - then I can’t recommend Uniquely Scotland highly enough.

Slainte, Archie.

The Uniquely Scotland team created a dream of a lifetime itinerary for our trip to Scotland. We had a combined train and driver-guided tour that included the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Fort William, the Jacobite Steam Train to Mallaig and the Kyle Line to Inverness. Our five-day driver-guided tour with Archie was magical. Not only did he take us to “must-see” tourist attractions and scenic routes, but he also made sure I was able to visit the birthplace of my grandfather and my great grandmother’s home.

The accommodations in our itinerary offered a wide variety of experiences from historic hunting lodges and local pubs/inns to more modern bed and breakfast accommodations and our very favourite three-night stay at Old Leckie Farm, near Stirling.

We highly recommend Uniquely Scotland. The attention to detail and willingness to help you plan the trip you want is second to none.

Archie of Uniquely Scotland provided our tour group with an incredible seven day tour of Scotland! The tour included a wonderful variety of geographic, historic, and scenic sites as well as various other points of interest along the way. Prior to our trip Archie and his staff worked diligently with us to create an itinerary which encompassed both our wishlist of places and things to see as well as suggestions from them based on their vast experience. However, Archie being both intuitive and flexible did not hesitate to alter plans throughout the tour as he sensed our unique and sometimes changing peaks of interest as the trip progressed. Archie was professional, well-spoken and particularly good at storytelling with an endearing Scottish accent and pocketful of great Scottish expressions. He was caring and compassionate, always thinking about and addressing each individual group member’s interests and needs. His knowledge of Scotland’s history, sites, people and traditions is very impressive and if there was something he was unsure of he was quick to research the answer. And in addition to all the aforementioned qualities Archie is fun loving guy with a great sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our seven days adventuring Scotland with him and would highly recommend anyone considering a trip seek out Archie and his tour company Uniquely Scotland! Thank you Archie and Uniquely Scotland, fondly Chris of the Cheeky Wee Beasty Clan.

Outstanding trip planned by Uniquely Scotland. I knew I wanted to do a solo trip for a couple of weeks in Scotland but no idea of where, what or how. Did some research and found Archie and US. They planned a great trip for an 8 day train adventure and 2 extra days in Edinburgh for Tattoo and festivals. I got my 100% Scottish experience. Probably 120 %. It was well paced with nice accommodations and don’t think I could have gotten anymore out of my time there. Their planning was detailed so I didn’t miss any trains, had a wide variety of choices of sites, activities and places to eat. I didn’t have to worry about anything except my holiday. Archie gives it the personal touch. Thank you.

I happened upon a recommendation of Uniquely Scotland bespoke tours in Scotland Magazine . I began the process of communicating our wishes for a tour and found the response timely and very helpful.
We have just returned from an amazing tour . Archie the owner/driver/guide made our trip “the best”. He was attentive to our wishes and made us all so comfortable. Archie was so kind to take time to share beautiful places that made our tour truly unique and a special memory we will never forget. He was extremely accommodating and helped us with the unforeseen issues that happened along the way. He took it all in stride. I highly recommend Uniquely Scotland tours. Can’t wait to return.

Our trip, organized by Uniquely Scotland was perfect. We had 8 days independent travel (wonderful accomodations and easy to understand train instructions). Archie, from uniquely Scotland gave us a 3 day guided tour, around NorthEast Scotland. Everything was perfect! Archie was so pleasant and was able to give us historical information, as well as Bagpipe serendades, and whisky sipping opportunties.

My husband, 2 adult children, and I had a perfect 7 night/8 day tour with Archie. We feel we have seen so many parts of Scotland, yet looking at the map there is so much more to see! Archie’s in-depth knowledge, hospitality, and sense of humor helped us understand the complicated and interesting history of Scotland. Getting ferried around like royalty by Archie made the trip entirely free of stress for all of us. Archie knew of so many different hidden nature spots and historical places; we never would have found them if we were traveling on our own. We so appreciated Archie’s flexibility during our trip. Our son needed to return to the U.S. earlier than us, and Archie kindly rearranged some of our stops so my son would be able to see more before his departure. Archie recommended various restaurants at all our stops, and every place we ate was excellent! Before our trip, all communication to plan our routes and sights was thorough, efficient, and prompt. I cannot recommend Uniquely Scotland enough! Some useful Archie phrases for future travelers: “It was carnage,” “legend,” “dreich,” “bits and bobs,” “full on,” “punchy,” and the ever-important “slàinte!”

We took a 5 day tour of the Highlands and Isle of Skye with Uniquely Scotland in early June 2023 and had a wonderful time. Alan and Archie planned a great itinerary giving us the flavor of Scotland we were looking for on our first visit there. We really appreciated Archie’s deep knowledge of the Scottish history, traditions, cuisine (yes, we tried haggis), whiskey (just a wee dram, thank you) and landscape. We highly recommend Archie and his team.
