Languages:

Spain is a huge part of my life, having Iived and worked in Barcelona and Gerona and attended literature and fine arts classes at Barcelona University.  
I travel extensively around Madrid and in the north west to Galicia. and am especially interested in the Spanish landscape and wildlife.   
I love working with visitors from all countries and take pride in guiding them round Glasgow (my native city) and Edinburgh (our beautiful capital) as well as taking them to destinations further north in the Scottish Highlands,
As ambassadors for Scotland I feel that our job as Blue Badge Guides is to offer genuine Scottish hospitality and informative guiding  to all our visitors and to make their stay a memorable one.
