About Me

Hi! I'm Alan Pryde and I look forward to welcoming you to wonderful Scotland. I was born in Edinburgh though I grew up in Dundee. I spent some time in Spain but lived for over 20 years in Italy - more precisely, Messina, Rome, Milan and Monza so perhaps it's no surprise that I also guide in Italian! I have had a wide variety of careers from working as a Football Producer for Arab TV companies to working in a bank call centre. 
I am an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide with a very wide range of interests who will help to show you the very best of Scotland.
