Elspeth Guyan


I worked as a guide at Inveraray Castle doing tours in French and German for several years. I have also worked as a coach tour guide in English, French and German for the last two years. I have always had a particular interest in history and it is very rewarding when you can bring it to life for other people and spark an enthusiasm for our beautiful country. Since I started to work as a guide, I have enjoyed learning about flora and fauna, archaeology and the geology of Scotland and sharing my knowledge of Scotland with visitors.

I was born in Paisley and have lived most of my adult life in Dunoon in Argyll. I graduated from Strathclyde University with a degree in French and went on to teach French for many years. I have since qualified in German and have a First-Class Honours in German from the University of the West of Scotland. I have maintained my fluency in French and German by attending courses at the Alliance Française and the Goethe Institut in Glasgow.
