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.

Full and half-day tours, year round.

I am fortunate to be able to call the Highlands of Scotland my home. I take pride in helping guests from near and far get the most out of their time in the North of Scotland. Sometimes the small details make just as memorable an impression as the more well-known sights. Running a successful holiday accommodation business gives me the opportunity to meet and talk to visitors from many countries and to give them an insight into life and culture in the Highlands. As a French and German speaker this is always a pleasure and I guide mostly in German although English is my first language.

Food for me is one of the great joys of life and, when I can, I love to share my enthusiasm for cooking, local produce and wild food.

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.

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 Coach – available August and early 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!

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.

Languages spoken : GERMAN, English

Day / half-day tours; all year.

I was born and raised in Detmold, Germany, where I started my career in hotel management and moved to Ireland before coming to Scotland in 2007.  After a while I started taking friends and family around the country and to all my favourite places, which got me interested in taking up tour guiding.  Over the years I have developed a keen interest and therefore knowledge in contemporary Scottish culture, castles, whisky, wildlife and Highland/Jacobite history.  I love the sheer beauty of the Scottish landscape, the rough mountain tops, deep lochs, beautiful coastal routes and wild moors and enjoy the opportunity to take a trip around the country any time.  My hope is that at the end of my tours my guests can understand and comprehend the love I feel for Scotland and why I have chosen it as my new home.

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

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.
