Tours geared towards senior citizens allow them to travel with like-minded companions within their own age group. Generally, the tours go at a more leisurely pace, and often seniors are transported between destinations via buses or other vehicles so they don't have to do as much walking. A variety of senior tours are available to the major destinations in Scotland.
Scot-It offers a number of tours for all age groups, including school groups, individuals, seniors and the disabled. Their tours run from 3 to 21 days long and explore a number of sites throughout Scotland.

A group representative will also be available throughout the tour to assist the travelers should any need or problem arise.
