Careers at Discover Scotland Tours

We require full and part time PCV Driver-Guides for both our Edinburgh and Glasgow depots.

A family-owned business, Discover Scotland Tours has been operating 1-6 day tours throughout the Highlands and Islands since 2008.

In addition to our multi day tours programme that operates from both Glasgow & Edinburgh, we now operate day tours from Edinburgh.

With a full-on programme for 2022, we are now inviting applicants to join our small but very strong team of driver-guides.

Becoming a driver-guide for Discover Scotland Tours is about much more than being able to drive our modern fleet of Mercedes 16 seat mini coaches. It’s about helping to create lifelong memories for our customers who visit Scotland from all corners of the globe.

Our tours take in the very best of what Scotland has to offer, but it’s our driver-guides who enhance a visitors experience by providing a fun and informative insight into Scotland’s rich history, ancient culture, and breath-taking natural landscapes.

They say variety is the spice of life and every day is different as a driver-guide. You’ll be meeting and driving a new group of people almost every day, so abundant energy, patience, and compassion, as well as the ability to think on your feet, are important pre-requisites for the job.

Training is provided by our own driver-guides, the best bar none. They will assist you, to enable you to guide tours within a matter of weeks.
