Languages:

Scotland is famous for the natural beauty of its landscapes and the warm welcome visitors are given. As I tour Scotland with groups from conferences, cruise ships and a variety of tour management companies  the consistent comments are about the wonderful places and people everyone meets.
I have considerable experience working  as a Scottish guide with both business tourism guests and leisure groups and truly enjoy tailoring a tour to meet the needs of the group. 
Although I am based in Glasgow I can travel to meet groups throughout Scotland to ensure they have a great start to their holiday.
I am also an accredited Scottish guide for the world famous Burrell Collection  and  G2014 : Sporting Heritage tours in Glasgow. As a professional Scottish Tourist Guide I maintain my continuous personal development accreditation each year.

  • Tours

    City and extended tours are frequent parts of my work and I am qualified to guide anywhere in Scotland. As a Scottish tourist guide  I regularly work with corporate and conference groups as well as incentive tours - all tailored to my guests requirements.
     
    'Enjoyable', 'fun' and 'well informed' are descriptions my guests have used as they leave the tour - it's my aim to please!
    
    City tours are a good way to get an overview and make note of places you want to visit in more depth.
    Longer tours give my guests time to see more varied sights and explore themes  such as Scottish castles, countryside pursuits, lochs, glens and water ways.
    ​
    Tours can be in one location or covering the main visitor attractions around the country. Wherever you go you will be sure of great food and hospitality - and the occasional taste of whisky!
    
    Visitors sometimes have a limited amount of time to explore beyond the conference centre.
    ​
    Tours can be made to suit the guests and conference needs and interests in the time available.  Whatever tour they do they will leave with the knowledge that Scotland is a friendly and interesting place to return to.
