Bill R

Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, United Kingdom

I was born and bred in 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 109 private day tours with ToursByLocals. I have been a guide for the company for 7 years.

I cover Loch Lomond Inverary Castle Glasgow Stirling The Trossachs Culzean Castle and Ayrshire. I also arrange tours to Glen Coe. Please note that I only offer day tours.

I drive a classic Jaguar for all of my tours.

Please do get in touch for a chat and do consider booking early if on a cruise as clearly I can only arrange one tour per ship.

Credentials

I have lived in Glasgow most of my life. 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.

Restrictions

I can take 4 passengers in my Jaguar but it is more comfortable with 3 . This applies to most cars in the UK.
