Born in Inverness, the capital of the Highlands and brought up in Scotland, almost all of my holidays as a child were spent exploring Scotland.
Since those early days I have taken a deep interest in
many aspects of the country and am keen to show you
parts that may be off the beaten trail. Scottish military
history, whether that be from many hundreds of years ago
such as Bannockburn, or much more recent events such
as the impact of the Second World War on the country,
are topics I’m happy to explore. Following the routes taken by the early Christian missionaries, exploring the ruins of medieval abbeys & cathedrals or visiting historic churches still in regular use is another area where I can help you get the best out of your visit.
I’m particularly interested in the railways of Scotland,
past and present, but am equally happy showing you
parts of the country many miles from a railway track!
Coming from a rural background, I’ve got a good
working knowledge of how the countryside is used,
whether that be for farming, forestry or country sports
and would be delighted to show you our many scenic
and dramatic landscapes.
