About Me

We returned to the Highlands 19 years ago to the land of my ancestors. So I am your 'local lass' living here in the far north and thoroughly enjoy introducing you to our amazingly beautiful Scottish Highlands and dramatic Caithness, with its' strong Viking links and clan rivalries. Your 'ancestry research specialist' in the Highlands and Far North Clans..


I provide driver/guide services for corporate groups, coach parties, smaller groups, private tours from cruise ships and ferries (Invergordon, Scrabster, Gills Bay & John o'Groats) for custom tours in addition to tailored private tours.


There are a number of popular standard tours, however I do enjoy designing tailored tours around your interests and the time available (day, half day or extended).


The most popular tours are the 'Walk in the Footsteps of your Ancestors' (Ancestry research & Personalised Tours or Clan Tours); Caithness Experience (with the Year of Coasts and Waters theme); Rocks, Brochs and Castles; ; Whisky Distillery Tours and Tastings; Hidden Highlands; WW2 Caithness: The Highland Clearances; the Queen Mother and Castle of Mey; and the famed North Coast 500 route.


Scottish genealogy is my specialty interest and obsession - clan or family ancestry research and locating ancestral homelands allows you to 'walk in the footsteps of your ancestors' or clans. As a passionate local, I thoroughly enjoy sharing the history and beauty of our dramatic Highlands with you, and hope that I bring your travel dreams to reality!
