I am based in the Capital City of Edinburgh but appreciate the whole of Scotland and all there is to Celebrate!
I strive to maintain and develop high standards of customer service and I have an ability to communicate my knowledge and passion for Scotland whilst entertaining and hosting people who visit from all over the world. Visitors who Celebrate Scotland with me will be in safe hands as I have my own public liability insurance via my Membership with the Scottish Tourist Guides Association, an up-to-date enhanced Disclosure Certificate (http://www.disclosurescotland.co.uk/) and an Emergency at work First Aid certificate (http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/health-safety/training/first-aid/efa).
