About Me

After thirty four years working as a Police officer in both Scotland and Hong Kong (I know I don't look that old...) and a further period in the wilderness, I’ve finally found my calling… an opportunity to show visitors MY country regularly telling stories, sometimes tall, while hopefully being educational and entertaining.

I was born and brought up in Edinburgh and have lived in Scotland all my life with the exception there aforementioned period when I travelled East to experience another culture. I am of course biased towards what Edinburgh has to offer (it is the greatest city in the world) but acknowledge the depth of history and attraction of our other cities and of course the beauty of our islands, countryside and bodies of water.

I have worked semi-professionally as a photographer and am familiar with the areas around Scotland where the scenery will bring out the best in your photography. If that's not your main interest I can certainly point you in the right direction to improve the photographic quality of your Instagram account...

I am also very much interested in our national drink (not Irn Bru) and can guide you around the areas where our many distilleries are situated.

There’s a lot to see and do in Scotland, I’d be happy to be part of your experience.

I am a driver guide with a vehicle which can seat 6 passengers and with a long wheel base to take all of your luggage and shopping!
