Leslie Tait

Languages:

My name is Leslie Tait. I grew up in Orkney, then studied Science at Aberdeen University. I have lived most of my adult life in Orkney, while working in the oil industry on rotation in the North Sea and various locations overseas.
I have qualified as an Orkney Green Badge guide.
I have a great interest in my native islands and enjoy sharing this with visitors, both as a step on guide and driver guide. I have always had an interest in other cultures, travel and meeting people from different walks of life. It is a pleasure to meet the wide range of visitors to Orkney.
As an enthusiastic landscape photographer I can take people to interesting locations around Orkney, seeking optimum lighting conditions and spectacular scenery.
