I was born in Edinburgh, some 66 years ago, brought up in the Border country, but also spent a lot of time in Wester Ross in the Highlands. I was educated in Scotland up to tertiary level. My professional career was largely involved in the shipping industry and therefore was extremely fortunate to travel and live in many countries of the world. I’ve always had a strong sense of belonging and love of Scotland which has become my prime focus. I have been running tours for the past 15 years with my own company, and enjoy welcoming people here from all parts of the world and it is a privilege to show them around my country.
