New! Two existing tours, Guided Tour Focused on Duncan Ban MacIntyre, by Àdhamh Ó Broin and the Coach Tour to Glencoe, did not have sufficient registrations to fill a bus individually. Instead of cancelling the tours, we have combined them into a single tour offering the highlights of both, led by the inimitable Àdhamh Ó Broin. Luckily for all of us, the tours were on the same day, at the same time, and meeting at the same place, so combining them into a single tour was easy peasy.
If you are already registered for one of the two aforementioned tours, no worries — stay registered in your original tour and we will make sure you get on the Combined Tour bus on the day of the tour.
If you are registering for this for the first time, you came to the right page; this is where we are taking all new registrations for the combined tour.
Duncan Ban Tour Description: Guided tour by Àdhamh Ó Broin, the Gaelic consultant to the Outlander series and champion of Gaelic language, history, and culture. The tour will focus on bard Duncan Ban MacIntyre: where he lived, loved, and wrote. Àdhamh will take the Macintyres on a magical mystery tour and enchant them with Duncan Ban stories, history, poetry, Gaelic, and his tales.
Glencoe Tour Description (tentative): We will be touring the visitors’ centre and the Glencoe and North Lorn Folk Museum: http://discoverglencoe.scot/listing/nts/

These activities are still “proposed” until we have sufficient registrations to cover costs of running each event or activity. We will do our very best to provide activities as listed; however, they may be cancelled or modified due to bad weather, lack of attendance, changes in availability of transport, or any other factors beyond our control.
If a tour is undersubscribed and is cancelled, we will work with you to find a replacement activity or tour.
Please read the event descriptions carefully and use your own good judgment as to whether an activity is within or outside your physical ability. If you feel it might be beyond your ability please tell us as soon as possible. We will do everything in our power to provide modifications or assistance, but in some cases it won’t be possible or feasible for some people to take part in some activities.
