After many years in France, on the Riviera and at Ski Resorts in both France and Italy, I returned to the Highlands

½ day, full day, driver-guiding, extended tours

I’m a proud Highlander, and hugely passionate about all things Scottish. Over the years I’ve loved researching Scotland’s rich and tumultuous history, its world famous geology and fascinating archaeology, its legendary folklore and its varied landscape, wildlife, villages and people – and, of course, I now love to share what I know with anyone who’s willing to listen.

Who knew a non-whisky drinker would relish doing whisky tours? Is it wrong to have a fascination with Highland graveyards? But there’s definitely nothing wrong with falling in love with Jamie Fraser or Outlander! Yes, I’m a big Outlander fan, and have a wealth of knowledge about the film location sites as well as the area which was at the heart of the historic Highland action.

My annual family holidays were spent touring the Highlands, and 20 years working in the Scottish tourism industry saw me travel the length and breadth of Scotland’s mainland and islands on a regular basis. So I like to think I know how to show off Scotland, and the Highlands and Islands in particular, at its very best.

Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time tracing my Scottish ancestry and building my family tree, and when I’m not busy guiding I’m a keen road cyclist and a wannabe photographer, I’m enjoying learning to curl during the winter months, and I love antique collecting … oh, and you should know, I love my cat most of all!

Driver-guide (Rental vehicle as required, up to 8 passengers )

My own love of Scotland was formed from an early age as I was brought up in some of the most beautiful and iconic locations we have to offer: from the Highlands to Edinburgh, St Andrews to celebrated Royal Deeside.And I don’t just live here– I actively choose to holiday here too, so I know the ins and outs of being a visitor in Scotland.  My “past life” has also seen me work and travel extensively abroad, giving me a firm understanding of what makes or breaks a holiday whether you are part of a group or a solo traveller.

I delight in creating “the best Scottish holiday”, and would love to guide you around Scotland, giving you a unique insight into our beautiful country. I will take you to see our most stunning and dramatic scenery together with our iconic locations, while weaving in our incredible history and rich culture along the way.

I truly feel that Scotland is here for the exploring and I am delighted to extend an enthusiastic and warm welcome to you.

The North East of Scotland has been my home since 1984. I moved here from Germany, my native country, being attracted by Scotland’s natural beauty and remoteness. Although I am an engineer by profession, I prefer working with people and have been intensely involved with group work in a variety of settings, here and abroad, ever since I moved here. I have travelled a lot, over extended periods of time, but always love returning home to Scotland. Here I am reminded that so many more treasures can be found right on my doorstep.

Originally from Offenbach/Germany, I moved to Scotland in 1994, trained with the Scottish Tour Guide Association, and have been guiding since 1995. While in the past my work predominantly comprised extended tours I now mainly guide day tours in the Highlands as well as the occasional 2-3 day tour. I am experienced in a wide variety of tours (general interest/study/agricultural etc.) and it is important to me to tailor my guiding to the groups’ particular needs. I especially enjoy sharing with my groups what it is like to live in this wonderful country.
