McKinlay Kidd specialises in independent, largely self-drive holidays throughout Scotland and the islands, including the Hebrides, Orkney & Shetland.
Moreover, McKinlay Kidd has been awarded "Best Specialist Tour Operator" in the 2017 Telegraph Travel Awards, and AITO's "Tour Operator of the Year" in 2016, based on customer reviews.
We also offer a programme of holidays exploring Ireland, England, and have recently intriduced Wales to our roster too.
The company was established in 2003 by Robert Kidd & Heather McKinlay, who then had over 20 years experience working for some of the biggest names in the UK travel industry. Our mission - the perfect Scottish holiday. The reason we know where to find quiet, unspoilt beaches, hotels with a truly personal touch and restaurants where you can savour memorable food in simple: we care about seeking out the details that add the finishing touches to your Scottish holiday.

Every single recommendation in based on personal experience, and our golden rule is simple: we wouldn't send you anywhere in Scotland that we haven't been ourselves.
