Having  experienced the biggest crush ever on Scotland, I moved to Edinburgh to explore a warm and welcoming country. Coming from a journalism background, I started collecting stories to shape them into tours. 

After being a journalist, a copywriter, a teacher, a blogger and a hotel manager, I finally found the most amazing job in the world. As a tourist guide, I love having the honour or welcoming travellers to my adoptive country and drive them around. I like to comfort them with what they came for - beautiful castles, hearty food, spooky legends - and surprise them with the most surprising sides of Scotland, a country of technology, arts and science. 

I am the right person for you if you are looking for a guide that knows how to shape information to make it enjoyable for yourself or for a guest. I will know how to adapt my content to your special interests and will make sure I deliver some top-notch stories. For a family or a bigger group, I will ensure that everybody is enjoying a safe and mind-blowing trip and I will look after the logistics of the adventure.

Après avoir eu coup de coeur phénoménal pour l’Ecosse, j’ai choisi de déménager à Edimbourg pour explorer ce pays si chaleureux et accueillant à loisir. Venant du monde du journalisme, j’ai commencé à faire des recherches sur l’histoire de l’Ecosse, afin de concevoir des visites guidées ludiques et vivantes. Pour partager tout cela, j’ai d’ailleurs créé Frenchkilt.com, le site francophone de référence sur l’Ecosse. 

Après avoir été journaliste, enseignante, blogueuse et manager dans l’hôtellerie, j’ai trouvé, dans le métier de guide, tout ce qu’il fallait à mon bonheur. J’aime pouvoir accueillir des voyageurs francophones dans mon pays adoptif et les accompagner sur les routes écossaises. J’adore les voir découvrir les aspects de l’Ecosse qu’ils s’attendaient à trouver - des châteaux magnifiques, des plats généreux, des légendes intriguantes - avant de les surprendre avec des aspects moins connus de ce pays, avec sa technologie de pointe, ses innovations scientifiques, et ses mouvements artistiques passionnants. 

Je suis la personne qu’il vous faut si vous cherchez un guide qui sait adapter ses savoir à vos centres d’intérêts ou à ceux de votre groupe. Tout en vous racontant ces histoires qui font l’âme de l’Ecosse, je prends également en charge les aspects logistiques du voyage, poru m’assurer que tout le monde profite, en toute sécurité, d’une aventure décoiffante !
