Welcome to An Turas Heritage Expeditions. Destination experts for private ancestry, cultural and heritage tours in Ireland and Scotland.

At An Turas Heritage Expeditions we offer specialist private tours of Ireland and Scotland for those who seek to explore our unique Celtic history or get an immersive insight into their own heritage and ancestry connections.

On one of our immersive custom tours you can discover ancient standing stones and burial mounds, walk through haunting villages abandoned during the famine era in Ireland and during the Highland Clearances in Scotland, visit eerie battlefields, castle ruins and maybe even the clan seat of a distant ancestor.

Ancestry Tours

If you have Scottish or Irish ancestry we can help connect you to your roots. On one of our private, individually curated tours you can choose to visit the town or village your ancestors came from and also meet with local historians, genealogists and archivists who can give you an insight into how your ancestors lived and the reasons why they may have emigrated.

Our office is based in the Highlands of Scotland and we have years of experience running private tours in both Scotland and Ireland. With An Turas you get a true destination specialist with intimate knowledge of the destinations we offer.
