Michelle R.

Isle of Skye, Scotland, United Kingdom

Hello my name is Michelle I live on the beautiful Isle of Skye with my husband Matt and our two teenage sons.

Matt is an outdoors tour guide and leads the Soak up Skye wild swimming tours.

Having a (B. A)Hons Degree in History, Museums & Heritage, My entire professional career has been spent working in museums and castles and in doing so, I have built up an extensive knowledge of Scotland's rich tapestry of history and now, I have the pleasure of sharing all I know about the Isle of Skye with you.

As a qualified local historian to Skye, I have personally gathered extensive research at the local Archives and library on the Island of Skye. My personalised tours have been designed exclusively to maximise the best of Skye for you.

Being your very own private, educated tour guide you will experience a fully guided relaxed day tour where I amuse and entertain by combining factual history along with folklore and mythology stories. As your guide I have a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and energy for the job. One of the privilages of being a tour guide is meeting people from all around the world, and sharing my knowledge with them.

Think of me as your "friend on the Isle of Skye"-your own private tour guide and I will take you exactly where you would like to go. You can, of course, book one of my published tours or create your own customised tour.

My tours are easily modified for the less mobile, or to incorporate any special requirements you may have.

A Recent Review of this guide

Michelle was absolutely wonderful! She was able to squeeze in everything we wanted to see and do even tho it was pouring rain. Taking us to the Rha waterfalls so my daughter could swim was definitely the highlight of our excursion. You will be pleased if you book a tour with Michelle!
