I am a Blue Badge guide who qualified in 1993.  I have been guiding all over Scotland, including Orkney and Shetland since then.  From 2001 I have been holidaying in Orkney for up to six weeks each summer and keep up with Orkney happenings via Orkney news websites at other times of the year.  I have done cruise ship work while up on holiday the last few years.  My main guiding work is in German but I do guide in English too.  I do walking tours also as part of my work as well as work on coaches or on sites.


My other work is as a tutor in Scottish History at Glasgow University so the historic and archaeological sites of Orkney are of particular interest to me.  I am a member of the local archaeological society in Orkney.


Please note: Since I am only resident in Orkney in August and sometimes late July or early September my availability is limited.  My base in Orkney does not have landline ‘phones but I can usually be reached by e-mail or by messages left on my mobile.
