I am an accredited Blue Badge Guide, a member of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association and qualified to guide in French and English. I offer tours all over Scotland – anything from a half-day walking tour of cities such as Edinburgh or Aberdeen to a week touring around the country in a private car or minibus with driver for up to four persons.

I can offer a mixture of Scottish experiences

        romantic scenery; mysterious castles

        unspoilt fishing villages; whisky distilleries

        wild Highland glens and islands

I can take you to places off the beaten track, maybe a painted church; a forgotten

lending library; an abandoned crofting township. You can stay in a friendly,

comfortable B&B, a modest or luxurious hotel according to your choice.

I am experienced in accompanying discerning clients from Europe (especially

France, Belgium and Switzerland), the U.S.A, Australia and further afield and am able to

give you an unmatchable insight into this beautiful country. You can choose the

places you wish to see and I can prepare an individual tour plan or you can select

from my suggested itineraries.  I can arrange collection directly from your hotel,

cruise-ship or other location from my base in Edinburgh.




Scotland has a wide range of attractions including lochs, castles and stately homes; mixed with the magnificent countryside it makes any visit a pleasure


These are from walks I led in 2012 for Context which markets itself as ‘Walking tours for the intellectually curious’ and endorsed by Frommer’s and Fodor’s (largely American clients).

“A very amiable and knowledgeable host who could easily gauge the interests of her guests and dovetail her knowledge to their questions”

“Great walk! The three hours with Maggie were like three hours with a knowledgeable, easy-going friend”

Charming and delightful guide”

From a 7 day tour with K+N in French -

“Le groupe est rentré enchanté de ce voyage en Ecosse. BRAVO à la guide qui a suivi le groupe; le groupe l’a appréciée énormément”
