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” 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 (your vehicle be it car or coach) or can meet you for a stroll at a location of your choice.

My tours are relaxed and informal and offer plenty opportunity to just look, investigate and daydream and to focus on Orkney’s natural history.  I am an occasional bird-watcher but prefer wild-flowers and lichens; small things which remain still whilst you admire or photograph them!  I am passionately interested in the wider environment, of land, sea and sky-scapes and in conserving our indigenous wildlife.
