Scotland History Tours is here for people who want to learn about Scottish history and get ideas for Scottish history tours. I try to make videos which tell you tales from Scotland’s past and give you information about key dates in Scottish history and historical places to visit in Scotland. Not all videos are tales from Scotland’s history, some of them are about men from Scotland’s past or women from Scotland’s past. Basically the people who made Scotland. From April 2020 onward I’ve tried to give ideas for historic days out in Scotland. Essentially these are days out in Scotland for adults who are interested in historical places to visit in Scotland.

As a Scottish history tour guide people ask: Help me plan a Scottish holiday, or help me plan a Scottish vacation if your from the US. So I’ve tried to give a bit of history, but some places of interest in Scotland as well.
