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.

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

I was born and raised in the Highlands, inheriting the mantle of Seanachaidh (or Storyteller) from my mother. From earliest times I learned the span of Highland history, culture, flora and fauna. I later studied Geography, Geology and Scottish History at Glasgow University.
Mixing these ingredients with Guide training, entertainment and humour allows me to create successful tours to some of the most stunning locations in the country. I am also qualified in Ancestral Tourism, and have written a number of books including “Roots of Stone” and “Culloden Tales”.

half day, full day, extended, year-round, step-on guiding, driver guide (vehicle hired according to client requirements)

Over 20 years ago I first fell in fell in love with the Highlands, when I started working in Morayshire and Speyside. I am now based on the West Coast just a few miles from Glencoe where I live with my wife and young family. Spare time is spent exploring the hidden Highlands with the kids, clambering over ruined castles, strolling along ancient paths or finding seashells along deserted beaches.

I am delighted to explore the country I am proud to call home with visitors from around the world. Helping them discover more about its landscape, legends and history.

There is so much to offer across the Scottish Highlands and I can help individuals, small groups, coach parties, and corporate clients to discover it. Whether you are looking for city tour of Inverness, a more in-depth tour of Culloden Battlefield and the Jacobites, a day excursion around beautiful Loch Ness, or an extended trip island hopping along the West Coast, I can help with a tailor-made tour.
