Driver guide with own 7 Seat Vehicle, 4×4 and hire as required.

STGA Green Badge Guide for the Highlands, specialising in the North and East coast areas.
My family has been working the land in Scotland for generations, historically as sheep and cattle farmers, but the new generations have turned to golf for careers. I travelled the world as an engineer, but when a posting brought me back to the Highlands we couldn’t leave and we made our family home in Caithness.
I have a great interest in archaeology and have a Master’s Degree in Classics so can interpret many of the features of our landscape for you. I spend my time collecting stories of highland life, both historical and modern and I will enjoy sharing these with you.
My decades of experience as a cruise ship passenger taking excursions has given me a great insight into making the most of a day ashore so let me help you get the most out of shore-time. For those with a little more time, I can show you the ‘must-sees’ as well as those interesting little places that only a small vehicle or 4×4 can get you to. I will always tailor-make the tour for you.

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.

Born and raised in a town south of Glasgow called East Kilbride but realizing I was spending too much time traveling to the Highlands for recreation, I decided to move here full time in 2003. Inverness has given me a fantastic way of life. The thing I love about living here is the easy access to some stunning and historically interesting places. I don’t have to go far to find something that makes my heart glad. Having a personal relationship with the area means that I can show you these places & entertain you with historical background that gives you a genuine flavour for the area.
My touring cars are a Mercedes Viano and a Hyundai i800. They carry up to seven passengers, these are roomy cars which are fully air conditioned. All of Scotland covered, Driver-guiding and ‘hop on’
