Day Coach, Driver Guiding, Wildlife Walking
Specialities: Hebrides, Lochaber, Mull and Iona., PCV licence holder (up to 53 seater coach).,
I was born in Glasgow, moved to Sutherland in 1969 to work as a Ferry Skipper at Kylesku, then Corran (Fort William). In between that, I’ve been a Coach Driver/Courier throughout the Highlands and Islands, with more than a passing interest in clan history. I am a Life Member of the Clan Maclean and lived for six years on Mull, where I drove a coach for my Chief . I take great pleasure in describing my country to visitors and have an in-depth knowledge of the flora and fauna and the built and natural landscape.
1 day / extended / year-round / driver-guiding
A native Scot from the south west Highlands, I now live in Morayshire. I have worked for the Scottish Health Service and travelled frequently and extensively throughout the Highlands for the past 20 years often orienting new employees to the region. I learned German over a period of 7 years as a soldier in the British army in Germany between 1965 and 1972. I am proud of our Highland heritage and culture and knowledgeable about its current social and economic situations.
I am an avid skier, a keen golfer and enjoy most outdoor activities. My interests include postage stamp collecting, historic buildings, my 5 grandchildren and classical music.
Day Coach, Extended Coach, Driver Guiding, Wildlife, Walking
Specialities: local history, landscape, land use
Born and bred on a family farm then educated in Moray I spent most of my life there although my work took me throughout the Grampian Region. I worked for over 35 years in different aspects of Scottish Law. I am passionate about encouraging visitors to see and experience the best (not necessarily the most expensive) about Scotland and our people. I try my hand at photography, golf, curling and skiing with varying degrees of success. I will assist with welcoming people into the area, tour guiding and itinerary planning for 1/2 and whole day tours. I can include lowland walking, gardens, castles but what I particularly like is tailor-made days for small groups.
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.
1 day / extended / year-round
I was born and brought up near Edinburgh and after a career in accountancy in southern England and the Middle East, retired to the Highlands.
Day / half-day tours; all year.
I was born and raised in Detmold, Germany, where I started my career in hotel management and moved to Ireland before coming to Scotland in 2007. After a while I started taking friends and family around the country and to all my favourite places, which got me interested in taking up tour guiding. Over the years I have developed a keen interest and therefore knowledge in contemporary Scottish culture, castles, whisky, wildlife and Highland/Jacobite history. I love the sheer beauty of the Scottish landscape, the rough mountain tops, deep lochs, beautiful coastal routes and wild moors and enjoy the opportunity to take a trip around the country any time. My hope is that at the end of my tours my guests can understand and comprehend the love I feel for Scotland and why I have chosen it as my new home.
½ day / 1 day /Extended /Driver-guiding with own six-seat vehicle
Specialities :- Driver Guiding, Walking Tours, mountaineering, nature, visual arts
Born and raised in a town south of Glasgow called East Kilbride but realizing I was spending too much time traveling to the Highlands for recreation, I decided to move here full time in 2003. Inverness has given me a fantastic way of life. The thing I love about living here is the easy access to some stunning and historically interesting places. I don’t have to go far to find something that makes my heart glad. Having a personal relationship with the area means that I can show you these places & entertain you with historical background that gives you a genuine flavour for the area.
My 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’
Day / half-day tours; extended tours; driver-guiding. Interested in Folklore & Music; Outlander; Scottish History.

½ day / 1 day / weekends all year + school holidays
Specialities: Highland and Scottish history & culture
I was born and brought up in the Highlands. I graduated with an honours degree in French and German from the University of Glasgow. During this time, I spent a year teaching English as a Foreign Language Assistant in Paris and a term at the University of Bamberg in Bavaria. Since 1995, I have been Principal Teacher of Languages in the Department of a large secondary school in the Highlands.
Full and half-day tours, year round.
I am fortunate to be able to call the Highlands of Scotland my home. I take pride in helping guests from near and far get the most out of their time in the North of Scotland. Sometimes the small details make just as memorable an impression as the more well-known sights. Running a successful holiday accommodation business gives me the opportunity to meet and talk to visitors from many countries and to give them an insight into life and culture in the Highlands. As a French and German speaker this is always a pleasure and I guide mostly in German although English is my first language.
Food for me is one of the great joys of life and, when I can, I love to share my enthusiasm for cooking, local produce and wild food.
