Susan Napier

Languages:

Let me show you my Scotland - this beautiful, exciting and wonderful country.  Let me design tours to suit your interests and then show you some of the most magical places to give you wonderful memories.

Born in Edinburgh I have always loved  Scottish history, its people and architecture.  My degree is in Geography and Architectural History, and I then qualified as a Chartered Surveyor developing houses and new communities.

As a member of the Clan Napier and Clan Hannay, I would love to help you find your own Scottish roots, look for your Scottish ancestors and find where they lived.

Outlander, Harry Potter, Skyfall, Rob Roy, Monty Python and the Holy Grail - all filmed in Scotland.  I can take you to visit the locations and tell you the stories behind the films.

44 Scotland Street and Inspector Rebus stories - I can bring these alive for you on specially designed walking tours.

I am  passionate about the best Scottish food and drink - just try salmon, beef, raspberries and whisky - in fantastic surroundings!  And I am now a qualified Whisky Ambassador so can guide through you mysteries of whisky distilling and tasting.
