Discover Buchan Tours
Take a tour off the beaten track and discover the history and mystery of Buchan. Our tours can be tailored to individuals' preferences - which can include castle ruins, stone circles and quaint fishing villages. The Buchan area has a special charm of its own and contains some of the finest scenery in the North East of Scotland. A wealth of fascinating sites bears witness to the past events of Buchan. My intention is to bring you close to these sites by following the ancient Kings highway and the old smugglers roads. In the quiet country villages there is a sense of peace and quiet that is fast disappearing elsewhere.
Puffin Cruises offer daily sightseeing and fishing trips from Macduff Harbour a long the scenic Moray Firth coastline which has an abundance of sea and bird life that includes puffins, whales and dolphins. On our 3hour bird watching trip we sail to Troup Head, the RSPB site which is home to 4,000 plus gannets and is the only gannet colony in mainland Scotland.
North 58° Sea Adventures
North 58° Sea Adventures offer exhilarating tours of the stunning Moray Firth coast on the powerboat 'Buchaneer'/ Each voyage is different - all that is guaranteed are the departure times and a blast of fresh, sea air - the rest depends on sea conditions and the wildlife! Sense of adventure required... 'Buchaneer' is a safe and stable, rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) with seats for 12 people, and can reach speeds of over 30 miles per hour even in rough seas.
Duncans Tours of Scotland
The tours are not fixed as more time can be spent out of the vehicle if you choose than in the vehicle and the commentary is fun and interesting too. Many of the places we visit are not served by public transport, or have limited parking, making it difficult and expensive to visit them independently. Our Scottish trips represent great value for anyone interested in whisky or castles - you won't find better tour operators in Scotland!
