Jonathan Willet CPD
Based in : Maryburgh, Ross & Cromarty
Languages spoken : ENGLISH

½ day / 1 day / extended; driver-guiding
STGA Blue Badge Guide

Specialities: Wildlife and Walking
I am Lowlander by birth but a Highlander by inclination. I started my guiding career in 1995 with two years at Aigas Field Centre, just outside Inverness. I continued guiding groups in my various jobs after that. I moved back to the Highlands in 2005 and in March 2006 I started Red Kite Tours.
My main interest is wildlife guiding, but soon after I started guiding I realised no wildlife in Scotland lives beyond the influence of people. So I needed to understand the history, folklore, geology and place names of the Highlands to successfully interpret the exceptional landscape and wildlife found here to my guests.

Half & full day, year-round

Born and brought up in Southern Scotland, I have lived in the Highlands for over 30 years. My working background is in community work and in farming. I am now enjoying meeting people from other places and sharing my knowledge of the area.
I am interested in history and local culture, landscape and land use; also in giving visitors an insight into everyday life in the Highlands now.

Trude Owen CPD
Based in : near Tain, Ross & Cromarty
Languages spoken : ENGLISH, German, French

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.

George Munro CPD

I was born in the Spey side town of Grantown of a long established Highland family, and have spent all my life in and around the County town of Dingwall, on the Cromarty Firth. I am interested in the Highlands both historically and for its future prosperity. My long career in Local Government has seen me travel extensively throughout the Highlands and the Islands of the North and West and I am anxious to pass on local first-hand information I have gained to visitors to the area. I would be particularly happy to discuss with prospective visitors what they would like to see as part of their tour.

STGA Regional Green Badge for the Northern Highlands,
Half-day / full day / Day & Extended Coach, Driver Guiding. 6 -seater & luxury 8 -seater available. Available all year.
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.

Born and bred in the Highlands, I have an in depth extensive local knowledge and stories of long ago. I have travelled extensively in Europe, Asia, North Africa and North America meeting people from all walks of life. My hobby is talking (just call me gabby). I love people, my country, food, walking in the wild wilderness of Scotland, chasing sunsets and sunrises, skiing the peaks, touring distilleries and sampling their wares, driving along the beautiful lochs and glens. Your dreams can come true if you really want them to.
