Susan Brown

Languages:

Let me make your visit to Scotland memorable! 
I was born and brought up in Scotland, and despite living and working abroad for an international whisky company, Scotland remains my passion - which I now get to indulge as a Blue Badge tourist guide.
I have lived in Edinburgh and Glasgow, so know the cities well, but am a country girl at heart having been brought up in Highland Perthshire.  As well as castle, museum and city tours, I can take you to hidden picnic spots in the Highlands, amazing scenic locations, outstanding beaches, advise on a wide range of walks and outdoor activities for all levels of ability and help you find the “wow” factor for your visit. 

Please get in touch to find out more.

Pour les francophones, je serais ravie de vous guider en français et vous montrer l’Ecosse –  villes, châteaux, musées, distilleries, des endroits cachés et des vues sur les montagnes, la mer, les lacs et les vallées.  Je connais des coins perdus, des plages impressionnantes, des randonnées et activités pour tous les niveaux.
