Scotus Tours is run by Jim and Catherine Wallace. Jim is a minister of the Church of Scotland; Catherine is a deacon and counselor. After sharing a team ministry in the central Scotland town of Falkirk they moved to the United States where Jim was senior pastor of the Setauket Presbyterian Church, Long Island. Catherine served at First Presbyterian Church of Smithtown, NY. After almost 10 years in the US they returned to the land of their birth when Jim was called to St. John’s Kirk of Perth – the church where a sermon from John Knox sparked the Reformation in Scotland.

During his time in New York Jim was asked to lead a group on a tour of Scotland. He enjoyed it so much he wanted to do it again. He began Scotus Tours to provide an authentic, top quality service for our visitors. Jim says, “As a native Scot with experience of ministry on both sides of the Atlantic, I decided I was in a unique position to offer this to churches in the US.” Having run the company in addition to his parish work for a number of years he became its full time director in March 2015. He has a passion for sharing the very best of Scotland with our tour participants. Jim and Catherine enjoy managing tours in person. Carefully chosen professional guides also accompany tours when required.
