Languages:

I have been specialising in private driver guiding all over Scotland and the North of England for many years.  My vehicle is a very spacious People Carrier, so your comfort is ensured.   I can arrange the hire of coaches and chauffeur  driven-vehicles when required.  I love taking visitors “off the beaten track” to wild remote places where other tourists don’t go.   I travel extensively myself when I am not working  so am well aware of  the ingredients needed to make a good tour. I  am a fluent French speaker.  


“I want to thank you for showing us the beautiful and historic sites of Scotland.  We all had a great time with you and really appreciated your kindness, your charm, your knowledge  and sense of  humour. The trip would not have been nearly as enjoyable without you as our guide.  Thank you again!”

    Private driver guiding, coach, walking, train and boat.  Whether you want to marvel at our spectacular scenery, visit romantic castles and stately homes, walk in the wild, remote glens, see our enchanted islands, play golf on  a world famous course, enjoy a dram in one of our many distilleries, let me arrange it all for you!  I hold a qualification in whisky making and appreciation and often organise tours to the different whisky producing regions  of Scotland.  And as well as promoting our national drink, I love taking visitors to pubs with character and great restaurant to let them sample our fabulous Scottish fare – not just Haggis!  No matter what type of tour you are interested in, I can guarantee you a most memorable holiday!
