      Mini Bio

      Based in the Highland capital of Inverness I’ve worked as a Trip Leader in 27 countries since 2001.

      I have a passion for exploring remote and wild places, and adore both mountains and deserts. My extensive work travels have taken me to Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

      Closer to home, I delight in sharing the glories of my native Scotland walking through mountains and glens, along sea cliffs and beaches, around castles and towns. In all areas my enthusiasm, understanding of the local history, culture, flora and fauna plus my irrepressible sense of fun ensure a great and memorable holiday experience.

      Place to Play

      The Isle of Skye of course, my namesake island! Why, because it’s rich in history, culture, fabulous scenery and endearingly excentric people.

      Not a lot of people know this

      I only have camel fridge magnets.


      Adventurer's Stories about Skye

      Very helpful and concerned about our health. On my last day, I was able to spend the day with Captain Andy talking pictures instead of hiking.

      Skye was a very attentive and professional guide. She has also greatly contributed to the quality of her trip through her knowledge of Scotland and her love for this country.
