Day and extended tours, available all year. Interests: Folklore and music; Scottish History
Having been born and brought up in the Highlands and Islands I have a deep and genuine interest in the history, culture and landscape of my homeland. After a lifetime spent teaching and being in administration in a large secondary school in the Highlands I look forward to sharing my country with visitors. A real Mackay, I am proud to wear my kilt!

STGA Blue Badge Guide. Speciality: Scottish History and Culture
Born in Inverness and educated in England, I have spent more than half my life in the N.E. of Scotland. I have always worked with people and love showing visitors the beauties of Scotland and giving them an insight into our history and culture. Whilst training to be a guide, I worked on the open top buses taking people to Culloden, Cawdor Castle and Fort George and in a local winery which makes wines from the products of the countryside. I am a keen hill-walker and have travelled extensively in many countries thereby learning about other cultures.
At university, I studied French and Spanish and am qualified to guide in French. Having trained as a Blue Badge guide, I am happy to guide anywhere in Scotland and particularly enjoy extended tours but also city walking tours and driver-guiding.
½ day / 1 day / weekends all year + school holidays
Specialities: Highland and Scottish history & culture
I was born and brought up in the Highlands. I graduated with an honours degree in French and German from the University of Glasgow. During this time, I spent a year teaching English as a Foreign Language Assistant in Paris and a term at the University of Bamberg in Bavaria. Since 1995, I have been Principal Teacher of Languages in the Department of a large secondary school in the Highlands.
½ day / 1 day / year-round
Born in the south of Scotland but brought up in the Highlands, I have been guiding since 1996. Prior to that I lived and worked in Continental Europe. So grateful to be given the opportunity to show my country to visitors and always hope that as I do, they become as “passionate” as I am about Scotland.
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.
Day and half-day tours.
Born and raised in southern Scotland, I have lived in the Highlands for more than 30 years, where I have worked for both the National Trust for Scotland (at Culloden Battlefield) and for the Highland Council, building my local knowledge and developing a keen interest in all things Highland, old and new. I have long enjoyed sharing my love of this beautiful area with visitors from different parts of the world.
½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round
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.
½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round
Specialities: Driver guide, walking, wildlife, PCV Licence holder
I have been a tour guide for almost 30 years. For 22 of these I operated my own holiday business, offering walking, wildlife and Scottish history trips – in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, Ireland and south-west USA.
I speak German, French and some Dutch. I have a full (D) bus licence and so can offer driver-guided tours in almost any size of vehicle. I also offer group and individual hiking programmes including special topics such as bird-watching, wildflowers, local history, the Picts, Scottish literature, castles and gardens. My other interests include Scottish heritage, dialects and literature, photography and geology.
STGA Regional Green Badge for the Northern Highlands,
½ day / 1 day / Extended coach All year round
I live in Forres, Moray, and have lived in this area for about six years now, gathering much information of varying kinds over this time.
I am very interested in and knowledgeable about Scotland’s history and that of the Northern Highlands and Moray regions, including local historic figures like MacBeth and Alexander Stewart, the Wolf of Badenoch.
I am also a keen gardener and very knowledgeable about plants and their medicinal properties, learning more all the time.
My other interest lies in the native wildlife, both terrestrial and marine.
