Alison Barclay

Languages:

I qualified as a Blue Badge guide in 2004 having previously worked with VisitScotland,
I have lived throughout Scotland and have a great love of my native Country, all of Scotland is beautiful but one of my favourite places is the Northern west coast of Scotland and the Outer Hebrides.

I am happy to guide throughout all of Scotland and have many varied and diverse interests. I come from a long line of disinguished Pipers so that is a particular interest.

Another particular interest is Art and Architecture.
