Welcome to my chosen home!

Little did I know that I would be here for good when I first arrived with my family!

Although speaking fluently English on arrival -bringing up two sons in Scotland and working at a College for nearly 20 years, taught me to cope with everyday language – or do you know what they mean by dreich, stooshie or the weans / bairns??? 😀

But we also visited beaches, Castles and Country Parks. And I learned about Burns supper and the highland fling, Scottish culture did not bypass me.

I did not just learn – I enjoy it all too. So, I decided to share my enthusiasm for the endlessly beautiful countryside with rivers, hills and empty beaches, the wonderful stories – real and not so real with our visitors. You will find real life people in Scotland are very warm and welcoming.

And I do love the Scottish food. So much so that I decided to extend to Culinary travel. The food culture has changed tremendously over the past 20 years and we have several Michelin star restaurants as well as weekly markets where farmers peddle their produce and cook up some delicious food too.

The list of wonderful places to go and see or taste is endless. Let me take you on a tour around Scotland. Or you might like to explore one of our cities on a walking tour or in a comfortable coach. With Scotland’s many faces it doesn’t matter whether you are interested in nature, history, architecture or the arts – or indeed the wonderful friendly people. There is always something for everyone to enjoy.

– all the way from the Borders to Orkney and the Outer Hebrides.
