About Me

I was born and brought up in Aberdeen, I've studied at both of Aberdeen's universities and spent most of my life working in social care in the city. I've always been passionate about the Northeast of Scotland, an area that more than repays a visit, and decided to change gear and become a tour guide.

Becoming a Green Badge Guide at the end of February last year was unfortunately the worst of timings, but I have made use of my time delving into the rich history, heritage and natural beauty on offer here- as we say every day is a school day!

Given the most recent lifting of restrictions I am looking to offer half-day walking tours in Aberdeen for groups of up to six people.


Please get in touch to discuss how I can help you get the most out of your visit.
