HOSTGA

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round
Specialities: Land Management, Farming, Forestry, Community Matters, IT

I started guiding in the mid 1980s and since then have largely dealt with German-speaking groups from Germany, Austria and Switzerland with the occasional English group. Back then these were mainly 7-day+ coach tours covering much of the UK but particularly Scotland (or Ireland) supplemented by occasional small driver guiding or larger incentive groups. Nowadays coach tours are shorter and concentrate more on Scotland and shore excursions from cruise ships calling at Scottish ports provide me with increasing business.
Whilst a guide is a jack of all trades my personal interests are Land Management/Farming/Forestry, Community Matters and IT.

I am a qualified Scottish Tour Guide Association Regional Affiliate.

HOSTGA

½ day / 1 day / extended

I was born in Germany and studied Spanish and French (translating/interpreting) at University. After spending one year at the Université de Nice in France I moved to Spain where I worked for 6 years in tourism and language teaching. The Highlands have been my home for more than 25 years now and all the time I have been involved in teaching languages especially English for Speakers of other languages. History and culture are closely related to the language and so it is a privilege to share Highland heritage with visitors from many different nations. How could one possibly resist the charm of the Highlands with the breath-taking landscapes, the mountains and glens, the rivers and lochs and the quaint little villages?
Come and experience the rich history and modern day life.
Hope to see you soon in the Highlands of Scotland!
Bis bald in den Highlands!
¡Hasta pronto!
A bientôt!

HOSTGA

Day Coach, Extended Coach, Driver Guiding, Wildlife, Walking
Specialities: local history, landscape, land use

Born and bred on a family farm then educated in Moray I spent most of my life there although my work took me throughout the Grampian Region. I worked for over 35 years in different aspects of Scottish Law. I am passionate about encouraging visitors to see and experience the best (not necessarily the most expensive) about Scotland and our people. I try my hand at photography, golf, curling and skiing with varying degrees of success. I will assist with welcoming people into the area, tour guiding and itinerary planning for 1/2 and whole day tours. I can include lowland walking, gardens, castles but what I particularly like is tailor-made days for small groups.

HOSTGA

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round

Having spent my early life in the Highlands and Islands, I had the very good fortune to have had parents, with whom I travelled over this whole expanse from a very young age, which instilled and encouraged a great love and curiosity in me. To this day, I have great pleasure in imparting this knowledge to visitors of many backgrounds and nationalities. I have spent many years living in Austria, Italy and Switzerland, in addition to having had a long career in Middle-Eastern trade finance in London and the South-East of England.

I am a Russian speaking guide and worked in the tourist industry in my home country for seven years.
I have been living in Scotland for ten years now and the more I live here the more I like the country – its natural beauty, its stunning landscapes, its people and traditions, music and folklore. I understood that I wanted to share my passion with the others, which is why I became a tour guide here.
Being qualified in 2016 course for Highlands of Scotland Tour Guide Association I am now offering my guests to see and to feel the best that the Country has to offer, from remote corners of the Highlands to whisky distilleries, famous castles and palaces.

Мой опыт работы в индустрии туризма насчитывает семь лет.
В Шотландии живу около десяти лет и чем больше живу здесь, тем больше нравится мне эта уникальная и неповторимая в своей красоте страна, люди и их достижения, традиции, культура.
Желание узнать больше привело меня на курс в Ассоциацию гидов высокогорной Шотландии, который я окончила в 2016-м году, и теперь, будучи квалифицированным специалистом, с радостью делюсь накопленным опытом и знаниями с туристами в поездках по индивидуально разработанным маршрутам

STGA

1/2 day, 1 day, extended, year round
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.
