Scotland is a land steeped in History, Myths and Legends everywhere you look. From prehistoric standing stones to the more ‘modern’ battlefields and castles of the 14th and 18th Centuries, this rich land has plenty of secrets hidden with her misty Glens and around her dark, mysterious Lochs. We would be delighted to offer you the chance to experience the ‘hidden’ past with a journey through the countryside into Scotland’s history, geography and culture, by taking a coach/driver/rider tour like no other!

Specialising in bringing Scotland’s rich history to life through Re-enactment and Living History for many years, we understand that by combining history and entertainment with the needs of our guests, we can offer tailor-made tours that we would want to experience on our holidays.

Whether it is the chance to capture some amazing photographs, find your favourite whisky at any of the stunning distilleries, or simply have the chance to relax as you walk, ride or are driven around the length and breadth of Scotland, we guarantee that you will go home enriched with memories that will last a lifetime.

Specialities:  Isle of Skye, Outdoors adventure, Scottish traditional music, Arts, Photography, Tea ceremony, Business and events organisation.

I was born and raised in culturally rich Yunnan province in the South-west of China and moved to Scotland in 2008. Now based in Kyle of Lochalsh, I guide tours mostly on the Isle of Skye.
I have a degree in the English language, which I gained in China and I have a HND in business, which I gained at University of Highlands and Islands in Scotland.
I run a small tea business supplying speciality teas and I present tea ceremonies for functions and special events for local college, café and restaurants.

My interests are in Arts, Music, Photography and History. Since moving to the Lochalsh area of Highlands of Scotland I have developed a keen interest in studying the rich local culture, traditional Scottish music, outdoors adventure, and photographing the spectacular scenery.
I have become particularly fond of the many Folk stories that The Western Isles are known for, and understanding all the different layers of history and how they relate to each other.

I have lived in and loved the Scottish highlands for fifteen years. 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 began nearly forty years ago during a back packer holiday here. After many holidays here through the years after, I could not withstand ‘the pull’ any longer and became one of the returning diaspora in 2003. Having tour guided in Australia, Britain and Europe part time I made the move to gain my Scottish accreditation and thoroughly enjoy sharing the history and beauty of Scotland. I specialise in shore excursions from cruise ships, genealogy and research tours, Outlander tours and tours tailored to specific interests which include Scottish history, amazing mountains, glens and lochs, dramatic coastline and clan links to our turbulent history. My enduring interests are photography, travel and genealogy which I love to share with our guests!

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.
