Having traveled and enjoyed adventures in much of the world, for me, there is nowhere more beautiful, dramatic and captivating than my home in Scotland. Travel has made me realise just how lucky I am to live in a country with so much history, tradition, scenic beauty, and incredible accessibility.

It is a total pleasure and a great privilege to host and guide visitors to Scotland each year. My job is to help them connect with all the wonders we have here so that they may return home as ambassadors for this wonderful country I am lucky enough to call my home.

Place to Play

Sea Kayaking in and around the Sound of Arisaig. Spectacular views of the Small Isles, world-class paddling, heaps of history, long sandy beaches, turquoise water, fabulous sunsets…

Not a lot of people know this
