Day Coach, Driver Guiding, Wildlife Walking
Specialities: Culture, History, Music, Wildlife

Raised on the family farm on the West Coast of Scotland, I grew up with a love of the countryside and animals. Arriving in the Highlands in 1984 I started Highland Discovery Tours and since then have enjoyed showing people from all over the world Scotland’s historical landmarks along with special and lesser-known hidden places. As an experienced guide I am keen to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for the Highlands, the rich natural history along with traditional & modern culture. In my spare time I love renovating properties and furniture. I am also learning my most treasured possession – the Great Highland Bagpipe (out of earshot!). I am happy to take walking groups, coach trips, either driving or just guiding and create tailor-made itineraries. I look forward to meeting with you soon! I have a full PCV [bus] licence.

Driver Guide in the Highlands and Moray
Regularly complimented as their ‘best tour guide by far’ or my tour being the ‘highlight’ of their trip my clients appreciate what I offer as a guide. Like a good malt whisky, a tour is about creating the very best blend of places, stories and scenery for you to enjoy; the castles, battlefields, the towns and villages and including the special, more hidden places along the way.
My tours are full of fascinating facts about the Highlands – contemporary and historical – plus wonderful folklore, myths and legends. You’ll hear riveting tales of all manner of Highland characters – good, bad and ugly – designed to capture your imagination and create lasting memories that you will treasure for many years to come.
I specialise in Outlander’ tours, Clan histories, Vikings, 5,000-year-old Stone Circles, enigmatic Celtic symbol stones and pagan healing wells. Also the real, ‘more saint than sinner,’ King Macbeth, the infamous, bloodthirsty Wolf of Badenoch and Highland witches, wizards and seers. Speyside Whisky Tours.
I love guiding walking tours of the medieval and modern towns of Nairn,Forres and Elgin –all close to Inverness and the city itself.These are my ancestral clan lands where I have lived for over 20 years I would be delighted to share them with you.
