Drivers – Our team of experienced chaufeurs

Jim Hanley

Iain Williamson

Les Steven

Jim (Hanley) was the youngest ever tour guide at Glenton Tours when he joined the industry way back in the day. He was a mere 22 at the time and has clocked up millions of miles and volumes of knowledge since these days. Although hailing from the Emerald Isle he married and settled in Inverness and can share the benefits of tour guiding here in the Highlands for the last 48 years. Still with a young and vibrant approach to telling of tales and an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject, if it’s a touch of the blarney sprinkled on your day you want, Jim’s yer man, Begorrah! He is an accredited HOSTGA guide (Highlands of Scotland Tourist Guide Assoociation.)

Ian (Williamson) is our “Jolly Giant.” Nothing “green” about this fellow though. The first among us to gain two ***** reviews on Trip Advisor, Ian is a founder member of Scotland Taxi Tours.
He is a native Invernessian, proud indeed of his Highland Heritage and knowledge of the entire Ghaidhealtachd. He is a devotee of sport and a passionate fan of Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Ian spent years in the British Army as a younger man and travelled the world, (and England) extensively before being drawn by the lure of his homeland to return North and share his experience with the travelling holiday makers, nowadays flocking to the area by land sea and air.
A day with Ian is guaranteed to be be a happy time, entertaining and enlightening.

Les (Steven) is probably going to be your first point of contact with Scotland Taxi Tours. As one of the founding partners in the venture he is in charge of correspondence and booking your tour, helping you choose between the exciting options available. Always willing to assist he still finds the time to be one of our most popular driver/guides. He too has picked up the ***** plaudits on our Trip Advisor page. Les comes from farming stock and has recently re-located to his native Black Isle. His enthusiasm and friendliness makes him sought after by our enquirers.
