I began my Blue Badge training in 2002 after a spell working part time on the Open Top buses in Edinburgh.   I thought I knew a lot about Old Edinburgh but soon realised I was only scraping the surface.  There was a much bigger story to tell, and I enjoyed telling it!
The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn, so I applied for the Blue Badge Training Course.   Two years flew by and my head was bursting with knowledge.   I passed my exams, acquired my Blue Badge, and began my new career.   I now work with a variety of visitors,  leisure, corporate and incentive clients, special interest groups. No two days are ever the same.  I travel throughout Scotland and never tire of the wonderful scenery and the interesting people I meet.     
I am also involved with the training of new Tourist Guides.   This is a very rewarding and satisfying experience too.  I have made so many new friends from all over the world.    I can’t imagine ever stopping.

  • Tours

    I have a wealth of experience working with the Leisure market and the Corporate/Incentive market.
    For leisure clients, I believe small group tours are best. Either in a small 16-seater luxury coach or with a chauffeur driven luxury vehicle. 
    This allows us to uncover the hidden gems, dine in small quaint pubs, and visit the areas larger coaches cannot go.
    Whatever your interest, golf, whisky, castles etc..   
    Come with me and discover Scotland's secrets.
