About Me

Scotland is famous for the natural beauty of its landscapes and the warm welcome visitors are given. As I tour Scotland with groups from conferences, cruise ships in Greenock or Edinburgh ports and a variety of tour management companies the consistent comments are about the wonderful places and people everyone meets. I have considerable experience working as a Scottish guide with both business tourism guests and leisure groups and truly enjoy tailoring a tour to meet the needs of the group. I am based in Glasgow I can travel to meet groups throughout Scotland to ensure they have a great start to their holiday. I am also an accredited Scottish guide for the world famous Burrell Collection (due to reopen in 2022) and G2014 : Sporting Heritage tours in Glasgow. One specialism I enjoy is working with groups interested in Arts and Crafts subjects. I have frequently attended Shetland Wool week with groups and enjoy visiting designers, wool brokers, Shetland ponies amongst many other Shetland treasures. As a professional Scottish Tourist Guide I maintain my continuous personal development accreditation each year. I also maintain my emergency First Aid certificate.
