Hello - I am Fiona - thanks for visiting my page.

Scotland has been voted one of the most beautiful places in the world, but it is so much more.  A vibrant, modern country with wonderful people, unique culture, fascinating traditions and a rich history, you will find that visiting Scotland is an unforgettable experience.

I am a native Scot with a real pride in my heritage and in this wonderful country.  Born and brought up in Edinburgh, I guide in English (with a few Scots words thrown in) and my light accent makes me very easy to understand.  I have been lucky enough to meet and guide people from many countries and with many interests.  I have a comprehensive knowledge of all things Scottish and I love to share Scotland in an entertaining way with enthusiasm, humour and passion.  I am committed to giving my guests a truly magical experience and, apart from showing them the wonders of this spectacular land, I also make them feel welcome and cared for.  I have been complimented on my ability to share information and my story-telling skills, as I have an eye for detail and a flexibility to tailor the tour for specific groups of guests.

  • Tours

    I have experience with many types of tours and I really do enjoy welcoming people to Scotland.  Whether it be a personal tour for one guest to ancestral homelands, a walk round Edinburgh's Old Town with a couple, taking a coach full of teenagers learning English on the hunt for 'Nessie' or guiding a group of visitors on an incentive trip through the best that Scotland can offer, I love it all and I do it with passion.
    Recent tours include Outlander, religious history, wildlife spotting, Harry Potter, whisky, clans tours and island-hopping.  I also work a lot with conference and corporate groups - being organised and flexible means that companies can rely on me.
