Half-day/ whole day / year-round
Born in Oban and brought up on the Isle of Skye, I graduated from Aberdeen University in 1990 with a degree in German Studies and subsequently lived and worked in Germany for a few years before returning to the Highlands where I now live in the Monadhliath Mountains with my family. I offer day tours and like to share with my guests some of the history of our country as well as information on life in Scotland today.
Day and half-day, extended, year-round
I graduated with an honours degree in German and French from Aberdeen University, during which I spent an academic year at the University of Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, and went on to teach English in Lausanne, Switzerland. On my return to Scotland, I worked in the Scottish tourism industry at national and regional levels. Since moving to the Scottish Highlands in 1995, I have been tour guiding and lecturing in tourism. I specialise in German and French speaking markets, with a primary focus on cruise ships and corporate groups. Additionally, I act as local agent for ground-handlers organising shore excursions.
Half day/Day/up to 3 days – late July to late August
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.
½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round
Whilst enjoying the breathtaking scenery of Scotland, we will entertain you with enthralling stories of the people who once lived in the places we visit. And, if you are eager to discover more about Highland dress, Highland games and other customs particular to Scotland, we will certainly satisfy your curiosity.
Als Deutsche, die mit einem Schotten verheiratet ist, möchte ich Ihnen die faszinierende Landschaft zeigen und spannende Geschichten über die Menschen erzählen, die dort gelebt haben. Natürlich wollen Sie auch alles über Schottenrock, Hochlandspiele und andere Sitten hören, und wie die Schotten heutzutage leben.
My photo shows one of my favourite Highland views, looking down Loch Shiel. By the loch is the Glenfinnan Memorial, commemorating the start of the 1745 Jacobite Uprising under Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

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.
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.
1/2 day/ full day / year round
I was born in Zürich in Switzerland and worked there for a few years as a primary school teacher. In 1978 I moved to the Scottish Highlands and have worked as a tour guide since 1983. I like to let my guests have an insight of life in Scotland past and present and answer all their questions be they in German, Swiss German or English.
½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round / driver-guiding
The North East of Scotland has been my home since 1984. I moved here from Germany, my native country, being attracted by Scotland’s natural beauty and remoteness. Although I am an engineer by profession, I prefer working with people and have been intensely involved with group work in a variety of settings, here and abroad, ever since I moved here. I have travelled a lot, over extended periods of time, but always love returning home to Scotland. Here I am reminded that so many more treasures can be found right on my doorstep.
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!
