About Me

Hi there!
I was born and brought up in Edinburgh and have lived for many years in Glasgow. My passion is showing visitors the very best of Scotland - whether her fascinating historical and cultural sites or her amazing scenery and natural environment. I've been tourist guiding professionally for a few years now, and I've been leading people hiking into the Scottish mountains for much longer. So whether you're looking to explore castles and distilleries, or Scotland's wonderful natural environment, I can help make your Scottish experience meaningful and fun. You'll find me approachable, professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic.

I am a "Munroist" - one of a select band of people who have climbed all 284 of Scotland's "Munros" (mountains in Scotland over 3,000'). I speak reasonable French and have a working knowledge of German.
