Matthew T.

Nairn, The Highlands, United Kingdom

Born and brought up in the Scottish Highlands, and educated to post graduate level.

Spent 14 years as a Buying and Commercial Director in 6 different countries, having visited over 50 countries I have developed an admiration for different cultures and ways of life.

My wife and our 3 children, decided it was time to return home to the Scottish Highlands and follow our hearts. We have made our home in Nairn, close to Inverness airport, Whisky Distilleries, Culloden, Castles, Standing Stones, Golf Courses, gorgeous beaches and the most amazing scenery.

I am passionate about the Scottish Highlands, and would love to show you the best of the area, share some stories, explain the history, give you a flavour of life in the Highlands today and help to make your vacation a fun, interesting, memorable one.

I am a qualified guide and a member of both the Scottish Tour Guides Association (STGA) and Highlands of Scotland Tour Guide Association (HOSTGA). Full indemnity insured.

You will be driven in my executive 2017 Volvo XC90 with leather seats and air con with seats for up to 6 passengers.

A Recent Review of this guide

We really enjoyed our tour of Inverness and the surrounding area. As we only had one day to explore, Matthew managed to show us so many wonderful sites. Matthew's knowledge and love of the highlands was very evident in the way he described each area to us. Matthew was always very considerate of us and how we were doing as we had varied weather conditions throughout the day. We felt we had a truly genuine highland experience and would highly recommend Matthew! We will definitely be back! Susan from Canada
