STGA Blue Badge Guide. Speciality: Scottish History and Culture

Born in Inverness and educated in England, I have spent more than half my life in the N.E. of Scotland. I have always worked with people and love showing visitors the beauties of Scotland and giving them an insight into our history and culture. Whilst training to be a guide, I worked on the open top buses taking people to Culloden, Cawdor Castle and Fort George and in a local winery which makes wines from the products of the countryside. I am a keen hill-walker and have travelled extensively in many countries thereby learning about other cultures.
At university, I studied French and Spanish and am qualified to guide in French. Having trained as a Blue Badge guide, I am happy to guide anywhere in Scotland and particularly enjoy extended tours but also city walking tours and driver-guiding.

We would be delighted to offer you the chance to experience the ‘hidden’ past with a journey through the countryside into Scotland’s history, geography and culture, by taking a coach/driver/rider tour like no other!

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round / driver-guiding

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.

George Munro CPD

Languages spoken : ENGLISH

1 day & extended coach;  driver-guiding

Specialities: Northern & Western Isles (including Skye), distilleries, history (Outlander) and Photography.

I was born in the Spey side town of Grantown of a long established Highland family, and have spent all my life in and around the County town of Dingwall, on the Cromarty Firth. I am interested in the Highlands both historically and for its future prosperity. My long career in Local Government has seen me travel extensively throughout the Highlands and the Islands of the North and West and I am anxious to pass on local first-hand information I have gained to visitors to the area. I would be particularly happy to discuss with prospective visitors what they would like to see as part of their tour.

Jonathan Willet CPD

Languages spoken : ENGLISH

½ day / 1 day / extended; driver-guiding
STGA Blue Badge Guide

Specialities: Wildlife and Walking
I am Lowlander by birth but a Highlander by inclination. I started my guiding career in 1995 with two years at Aigas Field Centre, just outside Inverness. I continued guiding groups in my various jobs after that. I moved back to the Highlands in 2005 and in March 2006 I started Red Kite Tours.
My main interest is wildlife guiding, but soon after I started guiding I realised no wildlife in Scotland lives beyond the influence of people. So I needed to understand the history, folklore, geology and place names of the Highlands to successfully interpret the exceptional landscape and wildlife found here to my guests.

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round; driver-guiding

Specialities: Landscape, History, Whisky, Geneaology, Golf

I have shared the delights of Scottish life and landscape with visitors to the country for over thirty years. As a professional geologist I began my guiding activities in the 1970’s when I led field trips and study tours to some of the most wild and beautiful places in the Highlands and Islands.
Over the next twenty years my knowledge and understanding of the history and culture of all things Scottish has made me much in demand for summer schools and lectures by some of Scotland’s Universities, both ancient and modern. Subjects ranging from whisky and water to Scottish Country Houses, Golf and Genealogy have entranced and entertained locals and visitors alike. I am a Blue Badge member of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association, the only professional geologist to be fully qualified to guide throughout Scotland. I am also a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
