HOSTGA

Half- and full day coach tours. Walking tours. Year round.

I was born and brought up in a small crofting village near Plockton and have always expressed a great passion for my home, the Highlands of Scotland. After studying at Aberdeen University and travelling around different countries, I settled back in the Highlands, now living on a Caithness farm with my husband and two children. I have worked as a couuntryside ranger in the Caithness area for the last 16 years. This has given me valuable insight into the local wildlife, history and culture of the area.

STGA

Walking Tours / Extended Walking Tours / Half Day / Full Day / Extended Tours – coach and private, chauffeur-driven – year-round
Interests: Archaeology/Prehistory, Distilleries/Whisky, Folklore & Music, Islands, Nature, Outlander, Scottish History

Occupation, vocation, passion: art, culture and history have always intrigued me and for a long time their interpretation has been a source of personal inspiration.

I grew up in the cathedral city of Saint Gall (Switzerland), where I was already guiding visitors around my hometown at a young age. During my 20 years as a customer adviser for a Swiss bank I regularly organised cultural events and expeditions for clients, often guided by myself.

As time went by, I more and more felt the urge to turn my passion into a profession – and there had always been this deep, mysterious yearning for the Scottish Highlands. So I opted for a change of both career and scenery and moved to the Highlands – it felt like coming home. Now, I share my love, fascination and enthusiasm for the dramatic landscape and history of my adopted home with visitors from a’ the airts and pairts of our world:

Lochs, glens, remote beaches, castles, ancient places, industrial heritage, distilleries, breweries, cheesemakers, cake magicians – there is so much to explore! I take individuals, groups and corporate guests on bespoke Highland adventures that will show the interesting, fun but also quirky aspects of these lands of outstanding beauty.

HOSTGA

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.

HOSTGA

½ day / 1 day / extended tours/ year-round

I was born and brought up in Sweden, where I studied and graduated with a B.Sc.Soc degree from Örebro University; I have lived and worked in the United Kingdom since 1980. Most of this time has been spent in the Scottish Highlands. My love of travel has resulted in me working as a tour guide and interpreter for many years.
I am delighted to share my experiences of the country, which I now call home, in an enjoyable and relaxed manner.

Jag är född och uppvuxen i Sverige där jag studerade och tog examen med en B.Sc.Soc-examen från Örebro universitet. Jag har bott och arbetat i Storbritannien sedan 1980. Det mesta av denna tid har spenderats i Skotska höglandet. Min kärlek till resor har resulterat i att jag arbetat som tour guide och tolk i många år.
Jag är glad att dela med mig av landets erfarenheter, som jag nu kallar hem, på ett trevligt och avslappnat sätt.

Half day, Full day, Extended, Year round
Driver-guide (Rental vehicle as required, up to 8 passengers )

My own love of Scotland was formed from an early age as I was brought up in some of the most beautiful and iconic locations we have to offer: from the Highlands to Edinburgh, St Andrews to celebrated Royal Deeside.And I don’t just live here– I actively choose to holiday here too, so I know the ins and outs of being a visitor in Scotland.  My “past life” has also seen me work and travel extensively abroad, giving me a firm understanding of what makes or breaks a holiday whether you are part of a group or a solo traveller.

I delight in creating “the best Scottish holiday”, and would love to guide you around Scotland, giving you a unique insight into our beautiful country. I will take you to see our most stunning and dramatic scenery together with our iconic locations, while weaving in our incredible history and rich culture along the way.

I truly feel that Scotland is here for the exploring and I am delighted to extend an enthusiastic and warm welcome to you.
