A recent scientific survey has stated that 14% of the Loch Ness DNA cannot be identified 👀.

On this date in 1923, the world-famous steam train, the Flying Scotsman, went into service with LNER. It was the first train to run non-stop between London and Edinburgh, and also the first steam train to reach the speed of 100 mph.

Want to visit the Flying Scotsman on your next tour? Let us know! The National Railway Museum publishes an annual schedule of appearances for this famous train.

On this day in 1848, Scotland adopted Greenwich Mean Time. Prior to this, local time in cities around Scotland ranged from 12 to 20 minutes behind the standard time set in England. It may not seem like much, but with the increase in railways throughout Great Britain, the differences in local time led to missed trains and even train accidents!

Tae a Virus (on Burns Nicht)

Wee wobbly, spiky beast,
Yer no too welcome at our annual feast,
For o’er a year ye’ve got us cowering’
A force o’ nature overpowerin’,
But a’ ye dae is sit an’ wait,
For bams like us tae replicate,
Ye canna live or breed or spawn,
Withoot oor help tae pass ye on,
Ye stick tae fingers, ride on breath,
Choosin’ auld buddies for early death,
But tho’ ye're pairt o’ God’s creation,
Ye’ll no survive a vaccination!

Hi Brian, so glad to be able to connect through Facebook! Our group is super excited to tour with you in March! Can’t believe how lucky we are to have found your touring company! See you in about 6 weeks!
Chris Chirnside our first guide with Personal Tours of Scotland was a lot of fun. One of our favorite photo memories is of Chris in his exquisitely tailored, tweed kilt looking for ancient dinosaur foot prints. Chris was tenacious about asking locals about where to take children. We visited farms, took boat trips, found playgrounds and rocky beaches. These would have never been part of a routine itinerary, and truth be told, we adults enjoyed these activities as much as the kids. We would book with Chris again and recommend him highly. He was a pleasure to travel with.
Could you do a personalized tour for 1 day from Edinburgh to Glasgow and back?
