Anne Reid

Languages:

I was born in Scotland and have lived here my whole life.  Edinburgh has been my home for over 30 years, but I am originally from Elgin in Speyside so know the North-East very well, including the Highlands where I spent all my childhood holidays.  My whole career has been dedicated to promoting Scotland to visitors and I therefore have the relevant experience and skills to bring to the challenging role of a Blue Badge guide.  I love Scotland and can think of no better career than showing visitors my beautiful country.  My particular interests are Scotland’s “food and drink”, the film and television industry, sport, Scottish literature and history but I have a good general knowledge and happy to turn my hand to anything!
