Special Interests:

History & Prehistory

My University degree is in Scottish History and I very interested in more recent and ancient history.

Architecture

Edinburgh has examples of a real variety of architecture, particularly in the Old Town near the Castle and the more recent 18th c classical examples in the New Town. All over Scotland is a huge variety of different styles from tower houses to stately homes and simple cottages.

Castles & Palaces

A must for anyone visiting Scotland - we are steeped in history and that is reflected in our wonderful old castles and palaces.

Countryside

What a variety of scenery we have - the Scottish lowlands and border country with their rich farmland and rolling hills - then the Scottish Highlands with their dramatic mountains and beautiful lochs (true wilderness still to be found).

Folklore & Traditions

Scotland's traditional music does not just consist of bagpipes although that is our most well-known instrument. Fiddles, accordions, harps - we have it all + a rich culture of songs, ballads and stories.

Stately Homes & Country Houses

Throughout the country there are beautiful great houses, many of them still inhabited with fabulous tapestries and paintings + lovely grounds.

Churches & Cathedrals

Our religion is fascinating - from the ruins of the ancient Catholic abbeys to simple country churches and city cathedrals.
