John White

Languages:

I am an English speaking step on guide, also qualified as a Green Badge guide for Orkney. Originally from Edinburgh, but having lived and worked in Orkney for more than thirty years in a local business I am well placed to guide the main monuments, sites and places of interest in Edinburgh, the East of Scotland and Orkney.  From later in 2018 I will be spending part of the year in Edinburgh, part in Orkney.
