I have lived in Orkney for over 16 years and still not explored all our isles have to offer.  Not a very good advert for an “expert” Tourist Guide – but it just goes to show how much there is to see! 


I qualified as a STGA Regional Affiliate in 2004 but like to keep up to date and am also familiar with other Scottish island groups; Shetland and the Western Isles.  I am available year-round as a “step-on guide” and have recently made a few changes to help us all remain healthy and safe during these challenging times.


I will be concentrating on “outdoorsy” things and have undertaken a comprehensive risk assessment to consider what mitigations I can put in place to minimise those risks.  I ask all potential clients to read and understand this document (sent by email) before confirming a booking with me.  However, my tours remain relaxed and informal and offer plenty opportunity to investigate and daydream, to see huge landscapes or small wild plants – and to take some creative photographs.  I am passionately interested in the wider environment of land, sea and sky and in conserving Orkney’s biodiversity.
