The Herd Behind
Scotland consists of three men
Stevenson. I was born in the Fife mining town of Buckhaven
and raised, for the most part, in the East Neuk fishing village
of Cellardyke. My early work years were spent in St Andrews, followed
by many years of working throughout the Kingdom of Fife as both
a Community Educator and Arts Organizer.
the past ten years I have organized and guided my Small Group Tours
of Scotland. The whole premise of this Tour Company is to try and
provide opportunities for discovery and understanding - not just
notching sites. Thus I try, as best I can, to persuade travelers
not to request an endurance test for an itinerary, and, to limit
each group is to an absolute maximum of 18 people (unless by special
request), with a typical small group being just 8 people.
prefer to guide groups through Scotland in a relaxing manner, staying
at two or three base locations from which we can visit sites of
interest - and not have to move luggage every day. My small group
members tend to be travelers rather than tourists, enjoying seeing
behind the tourist fašade, while visiting with "locals" and visiting
many sites not normally seen by the regular tourist.
group members visit Scotland to trace their Scottish ancestry; others
to golf or fish; most come to simply enjoy the beautiful scenery,
historic buildings and gardens, and most of all, to meet and enjoy
the people of Scotland. My Small Group Tours can be best described
as being " couthy. "
It's a Scottish word meaning " gentle."

We have both lived overseas for several years and have now returned
to the beautiful Argyll & Bute area of Scotland from where we
now organize and lead Small Group Tours to our native Scotland -
The Real Scotland.
