HOSTGA

Day Coach and half-day; Driver Guiding

Specialities: Driver Guide, Castles, Prehistory
I have a great interest in the early Celtic peoples of Scotland and that romantic era before the Battle of Culloden when clan chiefs controlled the Highlands. My specialities are castles, battle sites and clan lands. I wrote the guidebook for Dunnottar Castle and the Colin Baxter book on Clans and Tartans. Having spent many years in the Highlands, I now live in the Borders and provide driver/guiding all over Scotland. Winter months are spent arranging holidays for those visiting their clan lands or staying in Scottish castles. I write an occasional blog: Living with Clans and Castles.

Scotland is my home since 2011. I love the Highlands and Islands and their people. And sharing my passion for the mountains and seas. When I’m not guiding I am sailing and hiking. I am guiding all over Scotland. The islands my heart beats for the strongest are the Outer Hebrides. These are indeed magical islands where you will see vibrating colours and feel very much at ease as you are far away from everything. Anything from Golfing, Wildlife Watching, Hiking, Visiting art galleries or just Unwinding in Nature is possible. Talk to me for inspirations and I´d be happy to assist.

Born and bred in the Highlands, I have an in depth extensive local knowledge and stories of long ago. I have travelled extensively in Europe, Asia, North Africa and North America meeting people from all walks of life. My hobby is talking (just call me gabby). I love people, my country, food, walking in the wild wilderness of Scotland, chasing sunsets and sunrises, skiing the peaks, touring distilleries and sampling their wares, driving along the beautiful lochs and glens. Your dreams can come true if you really want them to.

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?

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.

My speciality is the German market, but I also take on other groups. I look after many parties coming into Scotland, and am flexible with the meeting place. I will don the traditional Scottish outfit for you. I can guide you in the main cities and countryside of Scotland, and have a special interest in theology, so I can do an interesting church tour for you. I have some Scottish poetry in German, which you might find interesting. But I can do most types of tour: castles, lochs, whisky, mountains, cities, etc. I may even have some shortbread. Just let me know.
