My name is Sue Pomeroy and I live in Dundonnell high up in the North West Highlands, surrounded by sea and mountains. I came here thirty years ago to work for the National Trust for Scotland at Inverewe Gardens as their propagator- botany and gardens are my lifelong training and passion. I have been lucky enough to travel to New Zealand, South Africa, Chile and Italy to study plants.
I went on to lecture, in the USA and the UK describing my plant hunting trips, relating the different cultures, gardens, wild flowers, history, archaeology and to generally enthuse about the countrys I had visited. Many lectures were for charity and for varied cultural groups.
My partner and I then bought a croft, designed and built a house and garden which we now open to the public.
After fourteen years as a propagator and lecturing it seemed a natural transition to step into tourist guiding taking guests to the places I love and have had a natural curiosity about- learning and being nosey are two requsite qualities that seem to go hand in hand with guiding.
I studied and gained a Scottish Tourist Guide Association green badge award for the Highland and Island regions.
I continue to study always.
My interests other than gardens, plants and wild flowers continue to over spill into wild life, insects, marine life, art, books, archaeology, natural history , architecture, stories, walking and jolly good cafes with good coffee and cake.
I currently work for three companies where im called upon to take day tours and long distance tours where im away for weeks at a time.
I love meeting people and going on adventures with others to discover this beautiful planet we live on and to share experiences together.
I very much hope I may meet some of you in the future.
