Hi and a warm welcome

Born and raised in Edinburgh I have spent my life time exploring Scotland and would welcome the opportunity to share with you the best that this beautiful and deeply historic land has to offer.

Coming from a background in education and conservation I  provide a wide range of specialist, personal and small group tours to meet your ambitions. Genuinely taking you on a unique journey not just to the most iconic sites in Scotland but also to the wonderful, quieter places that few visitors get to see.

As a fully qualified and insured guide I would be delighted to assist you in planning your visit, provide transport and ensure that you get the most from the time we share together.

It is my aim to provide the highest quality of guiding and  hospitality for you and your group. Please do get in touch. 

Slante,   Miles
