Itinerary for our Harry Potter Private Tour in Scotland:

As Harry Potter fans, we want to make this trip as magical as it can be, revealing all the stories, legends and inspiration behind J.K. Rowling’s writing. That’s why all the members of your Potter Party – no matter how big or small – will be sorted into Hogwarts Houses at the beginning of the tour. “Why?”, you ask? Because throughout the two day tour we’ll be having a location-based trivia competition, testing your knowledge of the Wizarding World and giving you a chance to win the coveted House Cup (or at least its weight in Chocolate Frogs)!

Day 1:

The majority of the first day of our tour is filled with family fun just south of the Scottish Borders. After we pick you up at your preferred location, we head south to Alnwick Castle: set location of Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter movies. You’ll learn how to ride a broomstick where Harry did, walk the halls and grounds of School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and relive all the memorable scenes with your private guide – all with no rush and at your own pace.

Day 2:

We set off for the land that housed Harry’s school in the novels – the majestic Scottish Highlands. Driving through the spectacular Glen Coe we make frequent stops to take in the scenery and discover some well-hidden movie locations. We then head to Glenfinnan – probably the most recognisable Harry Potter location in Scotland. We’ll arrive in time to see the Hogwarts Express (actually Jacobite Steam Train) making its way across the famous Viaduct, but there’s more than one wizarding location in this special spot!

We solemnly swear that your tour will be so good!

We’re always full of ideas (you can get to know us better here), but let us know if you have any specific interests or needs. We want you to have fun, so we’ll adapt the tour for you!
