Day Coach, Extended Coach, Driver Guiding
Specialities: Driver guide, own 7-seater, Highlands, History , Landscape
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”. Why not take a trip in my fully-insured, roomy 7-passenger people carrier?
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.
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.
Day and half-day / extended / year-round; extended walking

I am a competent and experienced guide having spent many years leading groups on walking holidays in the Highlands. I was a Countryside Ranger for several years and therefore my interests lie in the environment and wildlife. It gives me great pleasure showing this beautiful country to visitors.
