Luxury Helicopter Tours of Scotland - Scotland's Ultimate Holidays & Journeys

Luxury Helicopter Tours of Scotland - Scotland's Ultimate Holidays & Journeys

For those clients who prefer to get around far quicker than the road allows and who love the idea of seeing an alternative perspective of Scotland - Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions provide some of the travel industry's most exciting luxury helicopter based holidays. 

Our carefully crafted, tailor-made Scottish itineraries include flying tours of Scotland, working with the country's best aviators. In 2018 we have given a record-breaking number of Sandgrouse Travel clients immense flexibility by incorporating more helicopters into our luxury Scottish programmes. We have seen a sharp rise in our helicopter operations as Scotland further develops into a world-class travel destination, apprearing on the mega-wealthy's travel bucket lists (with very good reason). Of course, the super-rich and helicopters have a history of going hand-in-hand.

By coupling helicopters with our other high-end services, we are able to provide our clients with exactly what they require here in Scotland - a complete package. By presenting complete travel packages which include everything from luxury accommodation, excursions, meetings, visits and tastings to on-the-ground, reactive conceirge services, we are able to provide itineraries that are hard to beat.  We think it is fair to say, that few other in-bound Scottish tour operators can offer such a complete and comprehensive service at this high level of standard.

Ultimately the choppers we use are enabling our clients to enjoy the very best of Scotland whilst here under time constraints. Our aircraft are acting as convienent taxis - picking up and dropping off clients in dreamy locations in a fraction of the time that the land-based equivelent journeys would take.

Put simply, Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions have facilitated what would otherwise be impossible travel plans. Clients who are now visiting Scotland from around the world are fully able to enjoy their personalised, Scottish vision, with some very special Sandgrouse Travel touches thrown in for good measure.

Your very own helicopter allows ultimate access to Scotland - why not start planning your helicopter tour of Scotland today with our Scottish based travel experts? 

Outer Hebrides by Helicopter - Luxury Helicopters in Scotland(Sandgrouse Travel clients dropping into the Callanish Stones on the Outer Hebridean island of Lewis). 

We have access to an impressive array of state-of-the-art helicopters, from small single-engine choppers perfect for couples enjoying day trips out from a base, to the world's most luxurious twin-engine Sikorskys and Airbus choppers which can seat up to 10 or 12 passengers. These larger helicopters are very suitable for multi-day routings and island hopping. The flexibility within our offering means we are able to cater for a host of budgets, special criteria and individual requests. With good time, fair weather and the right permissions, almost anything in Scotland is possible to offer to our lucky clients. In someways, the more outlandish the request, the more fun it is for our travel planners to start to put together.

Although Scotland is a  not a large country, it is packed with incredibly beautiful mountains and lochs (lakes), these glorious natural wonders have restricted the number of roads and as a result it can be far more convienient to travel by privately chartered helicopter. This particularly shows itself when our clients have a rich pallet of interests that can take them to all corners of Scotland in just a few days. 

Enjoy your luxury helicopter tour of Scotland, curated by the experts in luxury Scottish holidays. 

Our Luxury Scotland by private helicopter itineraries give Sandgrouse Travel clients the very real opportunity to take a lunch in the Outer Hebrides enjoying freshly dived for scallops and dinner back in a secluded Baronial lodge in the Grampian mountains. The possibilities on a Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions helicopter itienrary of Scotland are in truth, endless. We have created itineraries which cater for the most whimsical of fancies, from visits to the Shetlands for lunch to touching down on the summit of mountain for a picnic to remember! 

A favourite in 2018 has been our whisky run - dropping in at some of Scotland's best-loved whisky distilleries for the ultimate whisky tour. When you are looking at getting from Speyside to the whisky making island of Islay in a matter of minutes the way you start to plan a Scottish itienrary becomes very different, ideas that would otherwise remain in the dark and dusty recesses of your mind are born, nurtured and developed into fantastic plans.
