Gail W.

Lochinver, United Kingdom

Hello and welcome to Northern Scotland. My name is Gail and I have been conducting guided tours across Scotland's Highlands and Islands for the past 6 years.

For me the best thing about being a tour guide is meeting wonderful people from all across the world and getting to travel to Scotland's most beautiful and interesting locations.

I have a passion for history and am currently studying towards a BA degree in History. I like to share historical tales and bring the locations we visit to life. But I also love Scotland's myths and legends and love telling old tales as we journey across the Highlands together.

I have experience in conducting guided tours based on history, whisky, nature and wildlife, clan heritage. . . and even a yoga tour as well!

I would be happy to use my local knowledge to create a perfect tour for you.

On a personal note, I live in Assynt in the far north west of Scotland where I have just taken on a croft (small farm) and am planning on building an eco-house over the next couple of years. When I am not conducting tours, I work as the local school bus driver. In my spare time I enjoy wild-swimming, going out walking and playing ukulele.

Come and travel with me from Inverness and explore the Northern Scottish Highlands

Gail was a fabulous guide and story teller. Her insight made the tours the best possible experience. She was a wonderful sport and very helpful with our group and personal needs. We love you, Gail!

6 years experience conducting tours across the Scottish Highlands and Islands.


Some attractions employ their own guides, so would be unsuitable for me to guide you in these locations.

I am not a qualified Walking Guide. All walks should be considered based upon your personal abilities. A qualified guide can be arranged upon request.
