Welcome, I am Julian, owner, main driver and guide of The Bigger Tour established in 2019. I have a passion for driving, meeting people and touring Southern Scotland. All tours are covered with the appropriate insurances and Private Hire Car Licence. I have travelled the length and breadth of Scotland but this area without a doubt has as much to offer as other parts once you pull away from the main M74. I provide a high level of customer satisfaction despite the weather on occasions. I cannot guarantee the wildlife but you will not be disappointed with the scenery in the quieter parts of  the Scottish Borders, Southern Uplands and the Clyde Valley.
