About Me

As well as working as a qualified Blue Badge tourist guide, for 8 years I worked for Edinburgh Museums and Galleries, giving guided gallery tours to visitors, colleges, schools and special interest groups. I am passionate about Scottish art, architecture, history and cultural heritage, not forgetting our rich and proud industrial heritage as well. I also love the outdoor life and cycle or walk whenever I get the opportunity. I find that this is the best way to see the huge variety of Scottish wildlife and plants in our landscape. I am a keen gardener and conducting tours of Scotland's glorious gardens is one of my great joys in life. Many visitors to Scotland are interested in our famous national drink and I have considerable knowledge of Scotch Whisky, having worked for Johnnie Walker in Edinburgh for nearly two years as a guide and whisky tasting host. I hold a Certificate of Scotch Whisky from the Edinburgh Whisky Academy and I am also a certified Whisky Ambassador.
