Trips of a Lifetime

Have you been dreaming for years about a grand holiday to see the best of Scotland, Ireland or England?

Epic landscapes, incredible journeys, memorable places to stay, local people to meet and authentic treasures to discover along the way. These are our guidelines for creating your trip of a lifetime, and rest-assured, we won’t recommend anywhere we haven’t been – and loved – ourselves. Do throw into the mix your personal requirements: escape to an island (or hop to many), stay in a castle, drive a classic car, taste your favourite Scotch whisky or Irish whiskey at source or introduce your family to somewhere with a special connection. Just tell us and we can make it happen. Whether you long to drive our meandering roads, prefer to let the train take the strain or would even like a private driver/ guide, we’ll create a unique personal itinerary that works for you.

Don’t leave your ‘Trip of a Lifetime’ to chance. Let McKinlay Kidd use our many years of local knowledge and experience to do all the planning, co-ordination and bookings so that you are free to appreciate the very best these countries have to offer.
