Bill R

Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, United Kingdom

I am enthusiastic about my beautiful country of Scotland.

I have lived here all my life and consider it a joy to show it to travelers. I am easy going and good company. I am reliable and knowledgeable about where to go and what to eat. I am flexible and will do my best to ensure that your experience will be a good one.

I am a people person without being over the top. I respect your privacy and appreciate that your experience of me must be the best I can give you.

I am retired and am now doing something I really enjoy. I have completed 100 private day tours with ToursByLocals. I have been a guide for the company for over 6 years.

I can also spend time customising a tour for you if you wish. Please do get in touch via the website email system and I will do my utmost to help.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had an excellent day touring with Bill. His tour was professional and thorough with several additional small stops, not in the itinerary, added to the route. Our disabled son and Bill seemed to bond, making the time fun for him and easier for us. Thanks to Bill we saw a scenic part of Scotland, and really feel our days in Scotland were the best of the trip. Lastly, the ride was very comfortable in Bill's deluxe vehicle. A jaguar is a ride the average joe in the states never enjoys! 5 stars

I have lived in Glasgow most of my life. I am retired and showing people Glasgow and the Highlands is something I really enjoy. Glasgow is a friendly city, that's its biggest qualification as well as being near Loch Lomond and the start of the Scottish Highlands. I own a Jaguar XJ6 car. I have a full UK licence. I have chauffeur insurance and public liability cover which is compulsory in the UK for the types of tours offered. I have a full clean UK driving licence which I have held for 40 years.


I can take 4 passengers in my Jaguar but it is more comfortable with 3.
