About your guide

I was born and brought up in Glasgow and still live in central Scotland. Our family holidays were always spent in Scotland and from an early age, I grew to love this wonderful country with its spectacular scenery, fascinating history, and wealth of places to visit.

Following a successful career in education, latterly as Headteacher of a secondary school, I now have the opportunity, through tourist guiding, to share my passion for Scotland with visitors.

I am interested in all aspects of life in Scotland, and will plan tours to suit a wide range of interests. Examples of tours include those based on:

  • Scotland’s history and historical sites
  • a particular theme, e.g. food and drink or golf
  • ancestry and sites related to family history
  • general interest and scenery

Why use a professional guide?

  • has undertaken rigorous training that is widely-regarded as one of the best in its field
  • has reached high professional standards of both knowledge and guiding abilities
  • is qualified to guide throughout Scotland
  • carries public liability insurance cover
  • can have Continuing Professional Development accredited by the association
