Fàilte don Ghàidhealtachd - Welcome to the Highlands!

I am Andrew a professional guide based in the stunning West Coast of Scotland just a few miles from the world-famous Glencoe. Over twenty years ago, I first fell in love with the Highlands whilst working in Morayshire and Speyside. And that love of my country remains undiminished. Even when not guiding I spend time exploring the hidden Highlands with my young family; clambering over ruined castles, strolling along ancient paths or finding seashells on deserted beaches.

Having travelled extensively overseas training activists in campaigning and communication techniques, I now have the best job in the world. Travelling around my breath-taking country accompanying visitors - like you - on their Highland adventure is a joy and a privilege.

All my tours are a blend of fascinating Scottish history, the best of our beautiful landscapes, a sprinkling of folklore and tales mixed with ancient legends. Add to that a topping of Scottish culture and local knowledge and you have the perfect combination of everything that makes Scotland special.

The most important thing is that I tailor each tour to your requirements. If you want to stop for lots of photos - that's great! If you want to linger over lunch whilst gazing at the view - no problem! If you want to get away from the tourist trail and explore the backroads - I would be delighted to do so!

There is so much to offer across the Scottish Highlands and I can help individuals, couples and small groups discover it. Whether you are looking for a city tour of Inverness, a more in-depth tour of Culloden Battlefield and the Jacobites, a day excursion discovering the best whisky distilleries, or a trip exploring secret beaches and wooded glens along the West Coast, I can help with a flexible and tailor-made tour.

The Highlands are renowned across the world for their hospitality. I extend a warm invitation for me to welcome you on a tour of Fort William and the West Highlands.
