Welcome to Celtic Journeys!                             
 

Scotland isn’t a place that you see with your eyes.
Scotland is a place that you see with your heart.


These deluxe, fully escorted small group tours are written for travelers who want to see the real Scotland--to meet the people, learn the history, hear the music, taste the whisky, walk among timeless monuments, and absorb the magic of the ever-changing scenery.

In addition to the mainland, destinations include Western Isles of Lewis, Harris, and Skye,
North Coast 500, Northern Isle of Orkney, and the Highlands. Most tours include the Isle of Skye
and the Highlands, particularly the original Outlander Tour®, based on the series by best-selling
author Diana Gabaldon.
