The North East of Scotland has been my home since 1984. I moved here from Germany, my native country, being attracted by Scotland’s natural beauty and remoteness. Although I am an engineer by profession, I prefer working with people and have been intensely involved with group work in a variety of settings, here and abroad, ever since I moved here. I have travelled a lot, over extended periods of time, but always love returning home to Scotland. Here I am reminded that so many more treasures can be found right on my doorstep.

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.

Ian was brought up just South of Glasgow, he has had a long standing love affair with Scotland. From a young age Ian has had a enthusiasm for the adventurous side of the Scottish landscape and his twenties found him skiing, white water kayaking and walking in the hills of this beautiful country. His passion for Scottish culture came to fruition when he became part of a group called The White Cockade, a living history, re-enactment group who would travel the country bringing history alive to its audiences. Being introduced to this way of communicating Scotland’s history was to be a turning point in his life.
Ian’s love of the landscape has recently been reignited with his interest in photography. This new hobby is proving a great way of scouting out some truly sensational, less travelled spots, which he is only too happy to share with you.
His knowledge of Scottish history and culture from the Vikings, to the Scottish Wars of Independence, to the Jacobite Risings of 1745 is second to none. Couple this with a talent of making his love of Scotland feel fresh, fun and relevant makes him the ideal Personal Guide for your excursion.
His touring cars are a Mercedes Viano and a Hyundai i800. They carry up to seven passengers, these are roomy cars which are fully air conditioned. All of Scotland covered, Driver-guiding and ‘hop on’
