About Me

Originally from Germany I have been living in Scotland for most of my life now. I'm a 'new Glaswegian' and saw Scotland's largest and most vibrant city flourish into the cultural hub and host of major events it is today. Let me show you the city and the country I love.

I called my business 'RavingScotland', because visitors often told me after my tours that they are now 'raving fans' of Scotland. 

What's important to me?

Tourism for all – I welcome visitors of all abilities and enjoy guiding visitors with physical impairments and learning difficulties. 
Sustainability – let’s enjoy Scotland today and keep it beautiful for generations to come. I follow the UNWTO motto Travel – Enjoy – Respect. 
Teamwork - If I can’t help you I will try my best to find a colleague who can or is better suited for what you are looking for.
