Matthew Tett

Languages:

Born and brought up in the Highlands, and educated to post graduate level, I spent 14 years as a Buying and Commercial Director in 6 different countries. I have visited over 50 countries and developed an admiration for different cultures and ways of life.

My wife and our 3 children, decided it was time to return home to the Highlands and follow our hearts. We have made our home in Nairn, close to  Inverness airport, and Whisky Distilleries, Culloden, Castles, Standing Stones, Golf Courses, Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle, gorgeous beaches and the most amazing scenery.

I am passionate about the Highlands, and would love to show you the best of the area, share some stories, explain the history and help to make your trip a fun, interesting, memorable one.

Feedback from one of my guests;

"Before the tour Matthew contacted me to see what we would want to do/see on our tour so he could plan accordingly. The perfect day it was! We had a great time, saw and learned so much about this gorgeous country. Loved that Matthew was so flexible to suit our needs. A delightful day with Matthew makes me want to return."
