Day Coach – available late June to September

I was born in South Africa, where I taught German as Foreign Language in secondary schools for 18 years and regularly organised and accompanied educational language tours to Germany. After moving to Scotland, I first worked as a guide in the Castle of Mey in Northern Scotland. Since 2013 I have been guiding (mostly) German-speaking groups from Invergordon, Ullapool and Scrabster. I find the Highlands of Scotland unique and fascinating in so many ways and would love to accompany you on a day / half day tour.

Ich bin von den schottischen Highlands und dem Leben in Schottland total begeistert und würde Sie gern auf einem Tagesausflug durch die reizende Gegend begleiten. Bis dann!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Half day / full day / year round (no extended tours)

Born and brought up near Inverness with a geologist for a father, I learned from a young age to appreciate the landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. With a PhD in Scottish Literature, I returned to the area to take up a post at the University of the Highlands and Islands, before going on to pursue my interest in whisky and its production by working for several years as a Lead Guide at Glen Ord Distillery. Whether it is whisky or literature, landscape or history that you are interested in, I look forward to meeting you and sharing some of the enthusiasm that I feel for the wonderful place where I live.

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round

I was born and brought up in Düsseldorf, Germany. During my work with the Bank I was sent to the HLC Highland Language Center on the Black Isle to improve my English. I fell in love with the surrounding area. Also I found the Scots people very friendly and helpful. That made me more interested in learning about the history, fairy tales and the Clans.
