Scotland is one of the finest places in the world in which to enjoy a classic car. Sadly, these days many classic cars are locked away as static exhibits in museums or as ‘investments’ in sterile storage facilities. Also, most classics are located in or around the major cities of the world where driving can be fraught with congestion and aggressive city driving.

The Cognoscenti is for those that relish driving these special cars with likeminded people on empty roads that weave through a spectacular backdrop of mountains, Loch’s and Castles. As well as the best driving roads The Cognoscenti also showcases the highest quality cuisine, venues and accommodation that Scotland can offer, resulting in an unforgettable experience and treasured memories that will last forever.

We organise high quality events and tours in Scotland for domestic and international owners of prestigious and historically significant classic cars.
