Chris Matthews

I’m a Green Badge Guide, qualified as a regional specialist for both Orkney and the North Highlands of Scotland by the Scottish Tourist Guide Association.

Living in Orkney for over 46 years, I’m ideally placed to offer you tours of our beautiful and historic islands. I can also meet you or make excursions into the North Highlands. I own my own fully licenced car, which comfortably seats four adults and two children.

During your tour I’ll regale you with tales and anecdotes from the islands, giving you an insight into Orkney’s history and culture. You’ll see our stunning landscape and wildlife along the way and we may also sample the local cuisine.

I’m happy to join you in your own car or coach if that’s your preference.
Let me share my love of the islands with you. Please contact me to discuss how we can personalise your tour.
