Les Sinclair

Languages:

I was born in Shetland and have lived most of my life in the islands. A retired teacher, I love showing visitors around my beautiful island home. I was a founder-member of the Shetland Islands Tourist Guide Association in 1993. After a few years teaching in Glasgow, I returned home - I missed the islands - and I want to show people what is so unique, interesting and fascinating about Shetland.
