Kirsty M.

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

My name is Kirsty and, as well as being a professional Blue Badge guide, I have a PhD in Scottish history.

From castles and clans to ancestry, archaeology and the arts, Scotland's cultural heritage is rich and varied, and I'd love to help you experience it. With a background in higher education and historical research, I'm in an ideal position to help you explore ancient archaeology, kings and queens, religious history, witch-hunting, the Jacobites, the Enlightenment or many of the other fascinating aspects of Scottish history.

Along the way, we can uncover so much more that Scotland has to offer: we can explore quirky customs, ceremonies, folklore and superstitions; feast on superb Scottish produce; embark on a whisky or gin trail; spot spectacular wildlife; bask in breathtaking scenery; visit film and literary locations; and photograph iconic landscapes, buildings and architecture.

I own a Land Rover Discovery Sport, HSE, Luxury, which has a wonderful panoramic roof so you can make the most of your journey with me.

Scotland is incredible. Allow me to help you make the most of your trip. :-)
