About Me

I was born "south of the border" but have lived in Scotland for 30 years and am a passionate ambassador for my adopted country. I still love travelling around Scotland - with groups on a coach tour or by private car, island hopping by bicycle with my family or running against the elements in half marathons. I particularly enjoy walking tours both in town and in our beautiful landscape. With a background in horticulture and garden design I also specialise in taking guests to Scotland's spectacular gardens. I work with a wide range of client groups in both English and German from school groups to business and FIT tours. I have previously worked as an Education Guide with the National Trust for Scotland in Edinburgh's Georgian House and regularly take student groups on walking tours of the city. As an experienced member of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association I am a fully qualified, freelance tour guide for Scotland. I can work with your own itinerary or tailor make a tour to suit your interests and time available. Please email me for more information or to discuss your individual requirements.
