Kerstin Devine

Languages:

Hello,
My name is Kerstin and I would be happy to show you what Scotland has to offer. I enjoy guiding visitors around Scotland, ensuring that everyone in my group will return home with some lovely memories of their trip and hopefully with the desire to come back for more one day. 

Scotland is my home country of choice. I was born and brought up in Germany, but live and work in Scotland since 1992. It is a marvellous and diverse country, that has so much to offer. A great place to escape to and unwind in, to walk and to explore, to learn about the remarkable history, to sample culinary delights, to experience arts and crafts and to enjoy the extraordinary landscape.

As well as my Blue Badge tourist guide training, I have other skills, interests and experiences in international business as well as hospitality & tourism, details of which you can find in the sections below. 

Whether you only have a few hours to spare between your business meeting and your return flight, or you’re here for a few days or a full blown holiday, whichever it is, let me know what you want to get out of your stay and I will assist you in coming up with your very own personal Scotland itinerary. 

You may even be a tour operator, who is looking for a guide who can accompany your group for an extended tour, a half day or full day excursion, or you are a family in search of your ancestral Scottish roots, whichever it may be, give me a shout and we’ll take it from there.
I look forward to meeting you.

Guten Tag,
mein Name ist Kerstin Devine und ich würde mich freuen, Ihnen Schottland mit Land und Leuten zu zeigen. Mein Ziel ist es, dass die Gäste in meinen Gruppen, schöne Eindrücke und Anekdoten von Ihrer Reise mit nach Hause nehmen und sie den Wunsch verspüren, schon bald wieder zurück zu kommen.    

Ich bin in Deutschland geboren und aufgewachsen, aber war schon immer sehr reisefreudig. 1992 landete ich in Schottland, meiner heutigen Wahlheimat, die so viel zu bieten hat.  Schottland ist ein wunderbares und vielfältiges Land. Die Besucher kommen u.a. hierher, um in der außergewöhnlichen Landschaft zu wandern und zu entspannen, das Land zu erkunden, seine bemerkenswerte Geschichte kennen zu lernen, kulinarische Köstlichkeiten zu verkosten und das schottische  Kunsthandwerk vor Ort zu erleben. 

Vor meiner Ausbildung zur Blue Badge Fremdenführerin für ganz Schottland, war ich  viele Jahre in verschiedenen Sparten im internationalen Firmenkundengeschäft tätig.   Weitere Einzelheiten dazu finden Sie unter meinen persönlichen Kontaktdaten. 

Suchen Sie als Reiseveranstalter, Firma oder Privatperson eine Reiseführerin, dann lassen Sie es mich wissen. Ich biete mehrere Ausflugsvarianten an, helfe gerne bei den organisatorischen Abläufen, sowie begleite Sie und vermittle Ihnen viel Wissenswertes über Schottland.

Ich freue mich sehr, Sie bald kennenzulernen.
