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.

I am a Russian speaking guide and worked in the tourist industry in my home country for seven years.
I have been living in Scotland for ten years now and the more I live here the more I like the country – its natural beauty, its stunning landscapes, its people and traditions, music and folklore. I understood that I wanted to share my passion with the others, which is why I became a tour guide here.
Being qualified in 2016 course for Highlands of Scotland Tour Guide Association I am now offering my guests to see and to feel the best that the Country has to offer, from remote corners of the Highlands to whisky distilleries, famous castles and palaces.

Мой опыт работы в индустрии туризма насчитывает семь лет.
В Шотландии живу около десяти лет и чем больше живу здесь, тем больше нравится мне эта уникальная и неповторимая в своей красоте страна, люди и их достижения, традиции, культура.
Желание узнать больше привело меня на курс в Ассоциацию гидов высокогорной Шотландии, который я окончила в 2016-м году, и теперь, будучи квалифицированным специалистом, с радостью делюсь накопленным опытом и знаниями с туристами в поездках по индивидуально разработанным маршрутам

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!

I have lived in and loved the Scottish highlands forever! A second generation Australian, born into a long line of Scots who maintained the strong traditions and culture of Scotland. My love affair with the ancestral homeland led us to join the returning diaspora, in 2003. Having tour guided in Australia, England and Europe I gained my Scottish Tour Guide accreditation and thoroughly enjoy sharing the history and beauty of our dramatic Highlands. As a local, I offer excellent local knowledge which will enhance your experience here.

I provide shore excursions from cruise ships (Scrabster and Invergordon), step-on coach tours for companies, driver/ guiding for small groups and individuals and city walking tours (starting points are Thurso, Wick, Dornoch, Inverness or as agreed). The Highlands are a unique destination, blending the energy of our thriving capital city Inverness with the great outdoors on the doorstep. The north is a superb area of heritage and culture, not to mention mysts, myths and legends that abound. Have you heard about the Selkies?

My most popular special interest tours are: North Coast 500; Inverness and Loch Ness; Clan Genealogy; Clans, Cairns and Castles; WW2 in Caithness; Footsteps of the Queen Mother in Caithness; The Caithness Experience; Highland Whisky Trail; Pictish Trail; and Highland Outlander.

Standard tours or tours tailored to your specific interests, will enthrall you with our amazing mountains, lochs and glens, dramatic coastlines and wildlife and clan and Viking links to our turbulent Scottish history. I look forward to welcoming you to our dramatic Highlands, and to turning your touring dreams into a reality!

The Highlands and Islands of Scotland are characterised by dramatic, ever-changing scenery. This enchanting part of the world is also home to dynamic and creative communities.

Born in Ayrshire in the Scottish Lowlands, I have lived in the Highlands for many years, working in radio and print journalism and covering a wide range of topics. Travel writing has given me the opportunity to explore distant locations. However, my favourite adventures have taken place at home in Scotland where I have stayed in luxurious castles and explored remote and spectacular places on foot, by water and on horseback.

I am a proud member the Scottish Tourist Guides Association and holder of the Green Badge qualification. This is an accredited and internationally recognised regional qualification, gained through study at the University of the Highlands and Islands.

There is considerable common ground between my two careers. A good piece of writing fulfils an editorial remit. An excellent tour, meanwhile, is founded on thorough research and tailored to the needs of guests, so that commentary unfolds like a compelling story, bringing to life key themes and lesser known stories. Be my guest and together we will discover people and places beyond anything to be found in a guide book.
