    Mini Bio

    I grew up in Germany and moved to Scotland nearly 20 years ago. I’ve called places all over Scotland home, from the Orkney Islands to Edinburgh, but now the Cairngorms is home. The landscape makes sense to me here and is often friend, cure and revelation. My career incorporates hospitality management, nature-based tourism, guiding, training and outdoor education. Connecting people and place is central to all the work I do.

    Place to play

    The Cairngorms are my home, playground, and often a remedy for any ailments. The Perthshire woodlands are a gentle hug on an autumn day. The Orkney coastline will always have a special place in my heart.

    Not a lot of people know this

    I used to lead Conservation Work Parties to the remote archipelago of St Kilda for several years. Incredible place.

    Working for a nature charity enables me to hone my skills and experience within the specialist area of rewilding. I have a strong overall knowledge of all things Scottish and a keen interest in flora and fauna, natural history and whisky.

    Passionate about LGBTQ+ heritage in the natural and built environment, I designed the Heritage-Lottery-funded Anne Lister Walking Tour of Edinburgh, which launched in 2021.

    Make Trip Private

    Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

    We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
