Lizzie Linklater

Languages:

I am a local person who was born in Orkney and has lived here all my life.  My family live here and being a granny is my greatest delight.  My accent is that of an 'Orcadian' and luckily I am assured I am easily understood by all English speakers.  Tourist guiding is a joy and I absolutely love spreading my enthusiasm for this wonderful place I call home to the many visitors who choose Orkney as a place to visit. Please do have a look at my website lizziesorkneytours.com or my TripAdvisor review page.
