Brigitte Swainson

Languages:

France is my country of origin.  30 years ago I fell in love with Scotland while roaming the hills, glens and lochs with my young family and have never left since.

I have lived in Linlithgow where Mary Queen of Scot was born. Her life, like Scottish history,  is intrinsically linked to France. I love to tell the story of Scotland when European interests and religion fashioned the destiny of the country and its queens and kings. The French legacy can be found everywhere; in architecture, art and even the Scots language.

I have always loved communicating my enthusiasm for Scotland and its culture. I take great pleasure in sharing the delights of my country of adoption.

Laissez-moi vous raconter l’Écosse! Mon professionnalisme et enjouement vous feront passer des moments inoubliables.



TÉMOIGNAGES

Brigitte est un super guide. De la classe, de l’humour, et beaucoup de culture qu’elle sait partager simplement. Bravo! Pascal P (Strasbourg)

Brigitte est une conteuse hors pair, elle connait trés bien l’histoire de l’Ecosse et nous a permis de découvrir un fabuleux pays. Elle a su nous mettre a l’aise, et ses histoires nous faisaient voyager a travers le temps. Merci beaucoup Claire (Aix-en Provence)

L’Ecosse a une longue et fière amitié avec la France, La Vieille Alliance (The Auld Alliance), et ce serait un vrai bonheur de vous guider en français, ma langue maternelle.
