Specialities: British & Latin American/Spanish History especially Royal Navy/Military

Born in Edinburgh but spent formative years in Argentina and Chile returning to study in the UK (1958) and joining the Royal Navy (1964-93). As a bi-lingual Spanish speaker I qualified as an RN Spanish Interpreter and was very active in this role after the Argentine surrender at end of the Falkland Islands conflict in 1982. Returned to Scotland in 2007 but have been visiting the Highlands for the past 40 years as am married to a Campbell. Have now been guiding for a few years and have thoroughly enjoyed showing Spanish-speaking tourists the beauty and the history of this region.

Green Badge-North Highlands – STGA Associated
½ day /1 day/ extended tours/ all year round

I moved to London many years ago, and I have been working as a tourist guide there ever since. I eventually expanded my offers of tours to the Highlands of Scotland following my fascination for its landscape and heritage.What I love most is the archaeology of the Highlands; I have an MA in Managing Archaeological Sites from UCL, and I have been involved as a volunteer in some excavations in Assynt (North-West of Scotland).I offer general archaeological tours, but if you are interested in a particular site, please be in touch, and I will organise your visit.

I can tailor themed walks/tours for Italian tourists and English speaking alike.

Ai turisti italiani posso offrire tours a tema, o semplicemente un assaggio delle bellezze delle Highlands: castelli, campi di battaglia, distillerie, paesaggi e luoghi famosi.

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round

Originally from Offenbach/Germany, I moved to Scotland in 1994, trained with the Scottish Tour Guide Association, and have been guiding since 1995. While in the past my work predominantly comprised extended tours I now mainly guide day tours in the Highlands as well as the occasional 2-3 day tour. I am experienced in a wide variety of tours (general interest/study/agricultural etc.) and it is important to me to tailor my guiding to the groups’ particular needs. I especially enjoy sharing with my groups what it is like to live in this wonderful country.

From early days youth-hostelling in the Highlands I have enjoyed climbing and for 50 years I have skied in Scotland and the Alps. I have produced booklets selling in Grantown Museum: “Battle of Cromdale, End of the 1st Jacobite War in the Highlands” and provided Gaelic Meanings for OS Explorers 418 & 419 (with Neil Campbell’s help).

HOSTGA

½ day / 1 day / extended / year-round

Whilst enjoying the breathtaking scenery of Scotland, we will entertain you with enthralling stories of the people who once lived in the places we visit.  And, if you are eager to discover more about Highland dress, Highland games and other customs particular to Scotland, we will certainly satisfy your curiosity.

Als Deutsche, die mit einem Schotten verheiratet ist, möchte ich Ihnen die faszinierende Landschaft zeigen und spannende Geschichten über die Menschen erzählen, die dort gelebt haben.  Natürlich wollen Sie auch alles über Schottenrock, Hochlandspiele und andere Sitten hören, und wie die Schotten heutzutage leben.

My photo shows one of my favourite Highland views, looking down Loch Shiel. By the loch is the Glenfinnan Memorial, commemorating the start of the 1745 Jacobite Uprising under Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

Green Badge

1/2 day, 1 day, extended, year round

Driver guide with own 7 Seat Vehicle, 4×4 and hire as required.

STGA Green Badge Guide for the Highlands, specialising in the North and East coast areas.
My family has been working the land in Scotland for generations, historically as sheep and cattle farmers, but the new generations have turned to golf for careers. I travelled the world as an engineer, but when a posting brought me back to the Highlands we couldn’t leave and we made our family home in Caithness.
I have a great interest in archaeology and have a Master’s Degree in Classics so can interpret many of the features of our landscape for you. I spend my time collecting stories of highland life, both historical and modern and I will enjoy sharing these with you.
My decades of experience as a cruise ship passenger taking excursions has given me a great insight into making the most of a day ashore so let me help you get the most out of shore-time. For those with a little more time, I can show you the ‘must-sees’ as well as those interesting little places that only a small vehicle or 4×4 can get you to. I will always tailor-make the tour for you.
