Catriona S.

Greenock, Scotland, United Kingdom

I started guiding tours seven years ago and since then have been taking travellers all over Scotland.

I began by servicing the cruise ship passengers at Greenock Port and have expanded my services since then to include the Highlands, Islands and Filming Locations tours.

I specialise in Scottish History, Whisky and Outlander Tours and you will be sure to discover all aspects of Scottish culture and history with me. I started the first Outlander Filming Locations Tours in 2014 just after it aired in the US. Since then, I have been a Supporting Actor in the show and interviewed by multiple media companies over the significance of Outlander including the BBC, the National Newspaper and the Scotsman. In other news, I set up a group called the Scottish History Police which also gained a lot of media coverage with the Guardian, National, Scotsman and the BBC.

I am also a Scottish Genealogist and can assist with family research and tailoring a tour towards your Scottish heritage. As a Scot myself, I have connections with a wide array of Scottish surnames and clans including Ramsay, Stewart, Gourlay, Cameron, MacNeill, Campbell and many more (we could be cousins). I am also the Scottish and Britain Commissioner for the Clan Ramsay.

Aside from my experience, I love my country so much, and it is my passion to take people around and show them just why I feel so blessed to live here. I also like to keep the atmosphere relaxed, and although I will provide information along the way and answer any questions, I also make a point to get to know my guests and enjoy a few laughs together. After all, we are all supposed to be having fun. It is one of my favourite parts of guiding people, is that I learn about their cultures and countries too.

I drive my vehicles and have planned each route carefully taking into consideration the driving times and comfort breaks. I am fully insured and always have a wee surprise in store at the end of each tour.
