Fiona Thompson

Languages:

Hi, my name is Fiona and I would love to have the opportunity to show you around Scotland. I am a farmer's daughter from Fife and I am happy to say I have come home. I have studied in Dundee, Aberdeen and Edinburgh where I gained a Masters degree in Geography and a High school teaching qualification. I taught for 20 years North and South of the border before gaining my Blue Badge
Guiding qualification.

My favourite part of Scotland is the Outer Hebrides where I spent many memorable childhood holidays. Having studied in Aberdeen I know Royal Deeside particularly well 
and feel that this is a wonderful and underappreciated region. My home is in Fife and, together with Edinburgh, this makes up the majority of my guiding work. I am particularly busy with walking tours of Edinburgh's Old and New Towns.

I love the variety and opportunities guiding Scotland offers and would be delighted to discuss your itinerary.  I am flexible enough to meet your personal interests and requirements whatever the mode of transport used, be it a chauffeur driven limo or a coach with 50 passengers.   I look forward to hearing from you.
