About Me

Specialising in individually tailored private tours for small groups, my tours not only show you the iconic images of Scotland, but strive to take you slightly off the beaten track. Whether driving round the hidden corners in my Mercedes V-Class or exploring a hiking route on foot, the easy pace will allow you to fall in love with Scotland, its landscape, its people and its culture.

I aim to undertake all my tours in a responsible and sustainable way and I am the proud recipient of a Green Tourism Business Initiative Gold Award and a VIBES Scottish Environment Business Best Practise Award; I guarantee that driver-guided tours with me are better than carbon neutral.

I was raised in rural Stirlingshire before my university years took me to Glasgow and Edinburgh. While this gave me a knowledge of central Scotland, it was my love of the outdoors, camping, climbing, and walking, that allowed me to explore the highlands and islands; indulging my interests in Scottish culture, history and wildlife.

My previous career as a geologist and engineer allowed me to work and travel extensively in Asia, Australia, Europe and the USA and I endeavour to use my appreciation of these cultures to build a shared enjoyment of Scotland's.
