Karen Anderton

Languages:

Ceud mile failte. A hundred thousand welcomes! 
After a long career in education, I am pursuing another dream: to welcome guests to my homeland and show how much this country has to offer.
I was born and have always lived close to Glasgow, which I love but there are many other areas which are close to my heart, for example the Western Isles, West Highlands, Loch Lomond, Fife, Lanarkshire (which has a surprising number of hidden gems) to name but a few. 
I have many interests and as time goes on, I seem to collect more and more.
I would be delighted to tell you the stories of past and present and find what interests you in my beautiful Scotland.
