Tom

Originally from the Lowlands and having grown up in the city, I never tire of getting out and seeing the Highlands! I have a real passion for sharing stories about Scottish history and the folklore of this country. You will usually find me either up a hill and enjoying the views, or at the bottom enjoying a whisky...it depends on the weather!

Duffy

Passionate friendly Scotsman. Proud to show off this wee Country’s mesmerising landscapes and share tales of ancient folklore and fascinating history. Happiest by a loch or walking through one of Scotland’s majestic glens. Up a mountain, followed by a dram of whisky by the fire is my perfect way to end a day out in Scotland. What a regard is Paradise Bonnie Scotland.

Dougie

Driver Guide Dougie

As I start my 23rd season as a tour guide with Highland Explorer, I see myself as one of the most fortunate people in Scotland. Sharing the sites and stories from Shetland, to the Scottish Borders is a passion that grows deeper with every tour I have the pleasure in guiding, I hope to share our Scotland with you soon.

Alison

I'm 50% Highlander and 50% Lowlander so that makes me 100% Scottish. Being passionate about Scotland is one thing but sharing that passion with people only makes the heart grow fonder. From sampling our finest whisky, troubled past to following trails to hidden gems, there's something to make everyone to fall in love with in Scotland.

Louise

After spending 6 years following the sun around the world, a dastardly virus brought me home to Bonnie Scotland. Now I'm behind the wheel, showing off some of the best wee spots we have to offer and I can say it rivals some of the wonders of the world. Lowland born, Highland heart.

Rich

The variety in this job in unreal! From the tour choices, to the people, you are pretty much guaranteed something new on every trip. But it’s the sights and locations that are the real biggies, from a stunning sunset over Oban to a dramatic, misty day on Skye.

Stevie

Since joining the team in 2019, I have been proud to be part of Highland Explorer! Every day and tour is a new adventure... I love being able to show off how beautiful and magnificent my home country is!

Iain

My name is Iain and I am passionate about the Highlands and Scotland in general. For me, it's a love affair with the beauty of the landscape, the rich complexity of the history of the lands, over thousands of years, combined with a deep respect for the language, regional dialects and culture of Scotland. It's nice to be able to talk about it and hopefully be entertaining at the same time.

Cara

A lowland lassie with a good mix of Celtic heritage and Irn Bru running through my veins. With spending summers in Ireland and the rest of the year exploring Scotland, the Highlands captured my heart. I love sharing the myths and legends of Scotland that I got told as a wee lass.

An Englishman that got lost in the Highlands and fell in love with Scotland. This incredible land has everything from breath-taking landscapes, enthralling history, and wonderfully friendly people.
