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.

Day and extended; driver guiding, wildlife, walking
Specialities: Mountain and walking guide with MLTB Certificate, PCV licence holder

Brought up in Scone, Scotland’s ancient capital, I now work out of its Highland Capital, Inverness, in summer. In winter I fly south with the ospreys and tour guide in Africa.
As a qualified mountain leader I specialise in guiding in the mountains, glens and along the coastline of the north west of Scotland. Walks vary from strenuous to gentle strolls; it is important to enjoy the countryside at your own pace.

I also driver/guide. With experience in adult education (albeit as a ceramicist!) I love to share the history, geography, fables and anecdotes of our rich heritage with our guests in Scotland.

Tatiana Buswell CPD

Half a day, 1 day, extended, driver-guide

Specialities: Landscapes and Environment, Music and Folklore, Walking, Scottish History, Distilleries and Whisky.

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

I am a competent and experienced guide having spent many years leading groups on walking holidays in the Highlands. I was a Countryside Ranger for several years and therefore my interests lie in the environment and wildlife. It gives me great pleasure showing this beautiful country to visitors.
I am happy to organise and take groups/ individuals on walking holidays in the Scottish Highlands. This could be for one day up to a week. I am also available for driver/guiding
