Place to play –  There are so many places in Scotland to play; some are more known than others. If I have to make a call as to where to go then, it would be the inner Hebrides, North West Highlands, and the Cairngorms.

Not a lot of people know this – I was born in former East Germany. More than 70 % of the price of whisky is the tax. Loch Ness is the biggest Loch in Great Britain by volume, with 7.45 km³.

Mini Bio – Before I moved to Scotland, I visited the country twice. Once with my parents at the age of 13 and the second time on a motorcycle trip around the north of Scotland. Both times I felt at home and on my third visit after finishing my university degree, I met Rosie, my partner. She is Scottish and from Edinburgh, after a few visits, we decided that I should move over and give it a try. That was five years ago and I never looked back.

Since being in Scotland, I started to work in the outdoors as a guide for various groups and location all over the country. I love being on the move and show clients this amazing part of the world with all the nooks and crannies Scotland has to offer. And there are many to discover…


Adventurer's Stories about Benjamin

See previous comments -- Ben Mueller was perfect for us and made our visit on Isle of Skye special! Mary Nikitik was helpful and we enjoyed her walking tour -- it was a good orientation to Edinburgh.
Sally Harding
Ben was incredibly patient and accommodating of group demands. In a group of varying ability he ensured everyone was comfortable with the hike undertaken. His passion for Scotland was very clearly on display in his provision of information concerning the locations hiked through.
Jemma Power
Ben was great. He knew the hikes and was a trusty guide. There were a few little glitches beyond his control and he handled them with ease and always had a Plan B if needed. He was attentive to each of us in the group equally not just "special ones". He had an easy going personality that made him comfortable to be with and he was professional in his demeanor. I'm not much of a history buff so listening to dates is hard for me but stories about a site are more intriguing and that would make it easier for me to be attentive. Ben clearly has a love of Scotland and it shows which added to the fun of being there. I loved when he'd talk about the culture of Scotland. I'd happily go on another trip with Ben as the guide.
Susan Wilensky
See previous comments. I would be delighted to have Ben as my tour guide any time.

Ben was superlative. He read the group perfectly and matched our walks accordingly. Always cheerful and encouraging. Sought feed back and was open to change. He was also part botanist, geologist, and historian.
Gordon MacRae
Ben was wondeful, very committed, friendly, sharing is knowledge and love of Scotland and always trying to accomodate different needs and requirements in our group.
Stephanie Mohr
We all loved Ben. Ability-wise, we were a diverse group, but somehow he made everything work. We were happy walkers throughout, thanks to him. His love of the Scottish outdoors and his interest in continuing to learn stand out for me.
