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 depends on the weather!


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.


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.


From Harry Potter and Hogwarts Express, to the Kelpies and Skara Brae, I'm OBSESSED with everything Scotland, especially our historic folklore. I love to go fairy hunting on Skye, searching for hours for the illusive will o' the whisps or trying to wake up the giants! Scotland is the best place to lose yourself in your imagination and the experiences you've always dreamed of. There is no better feeling than trekking the glens, hoping to catch a glimpse of a Unicorn.  


What happens when you let a panto dame roam free in the Scottish highlands? Come on tour with me and you’ll find out! Travelling, meeting new people from all walks of life and the brisk Scottish air is what it’s all about. I’ve hung up my acting heels and traded them for hiking boots. If you don’t learn much about our history at least I’ll make you laugh!


There's something magical about Scotland and I just love showing it off. It's great to get out and about. I love hitting the road and telling tales of Scotland's past!


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.


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.


A true highlander at heart; you will find me in the mountains, snowboarding or hiking, or in the sea, surfing or swimming. I truly believe there is something for everyone in Scotland, and growing up here I’ve had the chance to experience some of what Scotland has to offer, but I am constantly finding new places on my adventures. Scotland has so much variety in its landscape and culture, each area is so different, and that’s what makes it so magical. Come and see my Scotland! 


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.


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!


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 be able to talk about it and hopefully be entertaining at the same time.


I love my job, well it's not really a job, more like a holiday everyday for me where I get to show people from all over the world my beautiful country. My favourite place in all of Scotland is Orkney as I am a massive history buff. Being able to talk about history from the Mesolithic era to WWII history is absolutely my favourite.


I love showing off my wee country. Being able to see the rugged landscapes in all possible kinds of weather and sharing stories with so many people is the best thing about being a Guide. From the bloody history to dancing at a Ceilidh, every moment here is unforgettable.
