STGA Green Badge Guide for the Highlands, specialising in the North and East coast areas.
My family has been working the land in Scotland for generations, historically as sheep and cattle farmers, but the new generations have turned to golf for careers. I travelled the world as an engineer, but when a posting brought me back to the Highlands we couldn’t leave and we made our family home in Caithness.
I have a great interest in archaeology and have a Master’s Degree in Classics so can interpret many of the features of our landscape for you. I spend my time collecting stories of highland life, both historical and modern and I will enjoy sharing these with you.
My decades of experience as a cruise ship passenger taking excursions has given me a great insight into making the most of a day ashore so let me help you get the most out of shore-time. For those with a little more time, I can show you the ‘must-sees’ as well as those interesting little places that only a small vehicle or 4×4 can get you to. I will always tailor-make the tour for you.
