Fiona Mackenzie

Languages:

Hello, my name is Fiona and I am a Scottish Tourist Guide. Scotland is my home, but I recently spent over 18 months formally studying everything from the rocks under our feet to our history, architecture and wildlife, travelling widely to research and find new horizons so that when you come to visit I can share Scotland with you and focus on your particular interests, whether on the principal tourist routes or on roads less travelled.

I love the 'why' of history, landscape and architecture, the plants of this country and how we use them, and the rich wildlife Scotland has to offer. I am also interested in handcrafts, Scottish food and drink and traditional life. The connections between things offer a fascinating insight into how this country developed and the characteristics that make it unique.

If these things interest you too and you would like to explore Scotland further, please do get in touch. 
​
I can guide throughout Scotland but I specialise particularly in the East coast, taking in the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, Fife, Tayside, Dundee and Aberdeen.

I can design a special tour for you, covering what you want to see and experience, or accompany you on one of the classic tourist routes through Scotland.
