½ day / 1 day /Extended /Driver-guiding with own six-seat vehicle
Specialities :- Driver Guiding, Walking Tours, mountaineering, nature, visual arts

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’

Half day, full day, year around.
Driver-guide with own vehicle which can carry 3 guests in comfort

Recently qualified as a green badge guide for the North Highlands, I am brimming full of enthusiasm for showing visitors the delights of the Highlands, where I have lived and travelled extensively since 1997. My previous role as a charity event fundraising manager introduced me to the iconic scenery of the Highlands and developed my people and communication skills.
Whether you have interests in Scottish culture, history, wildlife, geology, stunning lochs and mountains or just want to chill in one of the most unique areas in the world, I would be delighted to guide you, and help create what I hope will be one of your most enjoyable and entertaining holidays.
I’m happy to guide on coaches, driver guide for up to 8 people or provide walking tours in the beautiful city of Inverness, where I am fortunate to live. The Highlands have been home to some amazing people and I want to share their stories with you….

½ day / 1 day / extended / UK

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.

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; driver-guiding
Specialities: Wildlife, Prehistory, Scottish History

Since moving to the North Highlands I have become passionate about the area and find nothing more enjoyable than sharing my knowledge with those wishing to enjoy this magnificent land. Having explored the area for many years, I like to share not only the splendid attractions but also the hidden gems that are often just off the main road. As a keen ornithologist I never cease to be amazed by the rich birdlife the area attracts. I have a keen interest in how the area developed from the Bronze Age through the Picts and Vikings up to the more recent times. Running a very successful self-catering holiday lodge business I am always ready to give advice to help all visitors get the utmost from the time spent in this wonderful part of Scotland and offer private tours tailored to individual needs and requirements.

Day and extended; driver guiding, wildlife, walking
Specialities: Mountain and walking guide with MLTB Certificate, PCV licence holder

Brought up in Scone, Scotland’s ancient capital, I now work out of its Highland Capital, Inverness, in summer. In winter I fly south with the ospreys and tour guide in Africa.
As a qualified mountain leader I specialise in guiding in the mountains, glens and along the coastline of the north west of Scotland. Walks vary from strenuous to gentle strolls; it is important to enjoy the countryside at your own pace.

I also driver/guide. With experience in adult education (albeit as a ceramicist!) I love to share the history, geography, fables and anecdotes of our rich heritage with our guests in Scotland.

Half-day / full day / extended coach

Having lived in the Highlands, both in Wester and Easter Ross, for over thirty years, and having taken early retirement from music teaching, I am enjoying using my knowledge of the Highlands by introducing visitors to local places of interest. My personal interests, apart from music and music making, include photography, theatre and railways.

½ day / 1 day / extended; driver-guiding
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.
