David Spooner

Languages:

I love Scotland – it’s people, landscapes, history and wildlife. So much so that I moved here 30 years ago to seek work. Now I share what I love with people who choose to have a memorable experience in this small but beautifully formed country.

I'm always learning from visitors questions and see familiar sights through new eyes - no two days are the same.

I’ve been a geologist, expedition leader and project manager implementing systems for government, social care, apprenticeships and the Highland Cattle Society.

Testimonials

It has been a wonderful two weeks and it’s all thanks to your guidance and your knowledge. I am sorry for how many complicated things we have thrown at you but you handled them all well. We all think you are amazing. NC

You gave every building, hill, loch and creature we saw life and meaning that we otherwise would have missed. Thank you for being so helpful and patient with such a rowdy group of people. This has been the trip of a lifetime for us and you’ve made it very special. MA

I've been lucky enough to travel a great deal, but never had such a beautiful and meaningful experience while doing so. Thank you for your knowledge, wisdom and sharing them with us. You are a terrific tour guide and an even better person. JC
