Iris Marhencke

Languages:

After having lived here in Scotland for nearly 20 years, I am still in awe of this beautiful country, its intricate history, its people and their stories who made Scotland what it is today: a delight to show to visitors from near and afar.

I am based between Stirling and Perth in " The Heart of Scotland " and on the stunning West Coast, South of Oban " The Seafood Capital of Scotland " with a special interest in Mary Queen of Scots and The Stuarts.

Day tours and overnights are perfect for showing and combining ancient castles, picturesque villages, historic towns and breathtaking lochs with the history of its diverse people : the Picts, Romans, Britons, Scoti and Anglo Saxons.
