About Me

As a certified Culinary Tourist Guide (World Food Travel Association), proud affiliate of the STGA, all round lover (and live-er!) of the outdoors, and self-confessed history geek, I delight in sharing my own passion for Scotland’s stunning scenery, long and fascinating past, rich culture and fabulous natural larder of food and drink.  

My love of Scotland was formed from an early age as I was brought up in some of the most beautiful and iconic locations we have to offer, from Edinburgh to the Highlands, St Andrews to Royal Deeside.  

I maintain enviable contacts across the country and specialise in finding the hidden gems and incorporating hands-on experiences of the outdoors or food and drink that will truly make you live and breathe Scotland.

I have also worked and travelled extensively abroad (including to some fairly unlikely travel destinations!), giving me a firm understanding of what makes or breaks a holiday whether you are part of a group or a solo traveller...  Not to mention a few tall tales of my own!

Believing that the possibilities for discovering Scotland and all that it has to offer are endless, I design and deliver bespoke tours through my own company, Infinite Scotland, as well as guiding step-on tours, for my discerning, inquisitive – and fun! – guests.  

That could be a half-day introduction to Scotland’s amazing food and drink and the fascinating stories and characters behind our culinary culture; or a longer road-trip to delve behind the scenes of our breath-taking landscapes, incredible history and world-class produce. 

I truly feel that Scotland is here to be explored and discovered, and love to extend an enthusiastic and warm welcome to each and every guest, creating experiences and memories of Scotland to savour for years to come.

Please do get in touch so that I can help create your own magical travel experience of Scotland.
