About Us

We simply enjoy helping visitors to Scotland see the very best of our beautiful country

Scotland is famous the world over for its beauty, its friendly welcome and amongst many other things, the excellent golf and whisky. We concentrate on the smaller places, the less visited, the beautiful spots known to locals, but rarely seen by visitors.

Guests should see those places they’ve heard of and looked forward to – like Edinburgh, Inverness, St. Andrews and the Isle of Skye – but we want you to really experience Scotland in a way most visitors rarely do.

Location, location, location

Celtic Legend is based in our beautiful capital city of Edinburgh.

It’s not often, we are the first to agree, the words beautiful and city go together, but Edinburgh really is one of the most spectacular cities in the world. It is the perfect place to start or end your tour.  The beauty of Scotland is on our doorstep.

Willie Wallace

Willie founded Celtic Legend in 1998, but has been operating tours in Britain and Ireland for over 40 years. He has a thorough knowledge of Scotland, its history, and beauty and a desire to share Scotland’s less well known areas as well as its’ rightly famous attractions.

He has contributed to and written travel guides and newspapers in various countries. Born in Edinburgh, he has lived in 7 different countries and traveled extensively through those and 30 others before returning to the country of his birth. He still loves traveling but he is more than happy to do most of it in Scotland.

Nowhere can beat Scotland for the scenery, the people and the history.” he says, but, of course, he would say that if he’s promoting tourism to Scotland.

Pamela Milne

Pam was born and brought up in Dundee, and has also lived in Aberdeen, Shropshire, Manchester and now Edinburgh. She is married to Craig, who she met whilst at University in Aberdeen nearly 20 years ago.

She has a background in administration but has tried her best to be the eternal student having studied History, Film Studies and Nursing….. But eventually she had to join the real world, and is now working in the family business whilst being a full-time Mum to the youngest ‘Celtic Legends’.

In her (very limited) spare time, she enjoys food (Vegan), wine (under the tutelage of Craig), reading, writing, and watching all manner of TV detective dramas to figure out whodunnit!

In 2017 she shamed us all by running the London marathon.

Liam Milligan

Liam was born and brought up in Edinburgh which he reckons is the best place in the world to live.

He has however, spent many enjoyable years living in Thailand, teaching English to under 12’s and Thailand runs a very close second to Edinburgh and Scotland in his heart. He now divides his time between Scotland and Thailand and is our man in Asia!

Stephen Wallace

As a great supporter of Ipswich Town Football Club, Stephen’s nickname is Tractor Boy!

He was born and brought up in Suffolk, which he loved. But, after leaving school he set off for the bright lights and big City of Leeds in Yorkshire where he studied and worked for 3 very enjoyable years.

In 2003 he arrived in Edinburgh to stay for just a week and, fortunately for us, has never left. A wonderful wife and three beautiful children later, he can’t imagine living anywhere else. He joined the family business in 2017.

Siobhan Grima

Siobhan was born and bred in London and moved to Edinburgh in 2018 after only one visit to Scotland! Siobhan’s background is in administration and after a career break following the birth of her son, she joined the Celtic Legend crew in the Summer of 2023.

Before having a wee one, Siobhan travelled quite a bit to the Caribbean, North Africa, Thailand, America, and the Mediterranean.

Her favourite food is Greek food………..which is probably why she is married to a Greek!

She loves animals, reading, writing, learning & being in the great Scottish outdoors with her Husband and their two dogs.

Having travelled the world, her favourite country to eat, drink and travel through (apart from Scotland!) is Italy. She hopes to live between Scotland and Italy one day.

Hannah Mackintosh

Hannah was born in Salisbury in England but grew up in the Scottish Borders and has also lived in Perthshire. She has now settled just outside Edinburgh with her family which includes husband Ross and youngster Logan plus a very energetic dog!  Their favourite holiday destination in Scotland is the isolated Ardnamurchan Peninsula on the West coast.

She has previously worked in tourism at Holyrood Palace where she met lots of lovely visitors from all over the world. Her interests include movies, trivia (you can test her on this one!) and animals.

Her second favourite place ever is New Zealand and she is desperate to take the family to show them round.

Aneta Dvorackova

Aneta Dvorackova

Aneta came to Scotland in 2005, to study for a year and loved it so much, she never left. She is originally from a small town called Letovice, Moravia, in the Czech Republic, where she studied Architecture and played volleyball for her college, university, town and region.

When not exploring Scotland, she loves travelling, but mostly in Europe, as she is not that keen on long haul flights!

As a family, which now includes a beautiful dog called Henry, they enjoy hiking in the Pentland Hills, biking and running.

Margaret Wallace

Born and bred in Edinburgh Margaret has managed to live her entire life no further than one mile from where she was born. She loves traveling especially if it means business class, five star accomodation, good food and wine and meeting interesting new people. She maintains this web site and nags to make sure queries are dealt with promptly and fully. She manages, amazingly enough, to miss out on guiding tours!

This is Franki  on an extended holiday to the USA in 1962. She is still planning her return visit!

Born in Glasgow, she has also lived in Edinburgh, Norfolk, London and Ayrshire and, after a long career in social work, retired and was persuaded to work part time in the family firm. That is when she is not looking after her ever expanding brood of grandchildren.

Her long held ambition was to travel to India, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand and she managed to get to three of the four in 2023 and India is in the calendar for 2024.
