McKinlay Kidd tailor-made holidays & short breaks

See Scotland differently

McKinlay Kidd are an award-winning tour operator offering unique, tailor-made holidays and short breaks throughout Scotland. Recently awarded ‘AITO Tour Operator of the Year 2016′ based on customer reviews, we are dedicated to helping independently-minded visitors get the most out of their holiday. We pride ourselves on personal service and thorough research, and will not recommend anything our team have not personally tried and tested. Holiday options include self-drive, touring by rail and fly-drive safaris.

Visit the secluded white sandy beaches of the island of Coll, experience the diverse wildlife on Mull, or take an historic steam train on the “world’s greatest railway line”. Let us help you discover the far reaches of Scotland, including the pre-historic and Viking sites of Orkney and Shetland or the fascinating St. Kilda archipelago. Our flexible approach means that you can add your own personal touches to holidays featured on our website or request a tailor-made proposal.

We work with a hand-picked selection of independent guest houses and small hotels, and contact each individually when booking your holiday. We’ve also partnered with some excellent guides, so our customers can really get under the skin of a place. Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local expertise. Our team of dedicated sales advisors will work with you every step of the way, and our 24-hour contact number means you can always reach us in the event of anything unexpected.

McKinlay Kidd has also previously been voted ‘Best Small Tour Operator’ by customers for four years running from 2011 to 2014 in the prestigious Guardian/Observer Travel Awards.
