Edinburgh Tour Guide - Neil S.

Neil S.

United Kingdom (UK)

I am a Blue Badge Guide, qualified with the Scottish Tourist Guides Association to guide throughout Scotland. After thirty four years working for a large Scottish law firm and a further four in the wilderness I think I’ve finally found my calling… an opportunity to show visitors my country while telling stories, sometimes tall, while hopefully being educational and entertaining. I was born and brought up in Edinburgh and have lived in Scotland all my life with the exception of a three year period when I went East to experience another culture. I am of course biased towards what Edinburgh has to offer (it is the greatest city in the world) but acknowledge the depth of history and attraction of our other cities and of course the beauty of our islands, countryside and waterways. I have worked semi-professionally as a photographer and am familiar with the areas around Scotland where the scenery will bring out the best in your art. I am also very much interested in our national drink (not Irn Bru) and can guide you around the areas where our many distilleries are situated. There’s a lot to see and do in Scotland, I’d be happy to be part of your experience. I am a driver guide with a vehicle which can seat 7 passengers and with a long wheel base to take all of your luggage and shopping!

I am a fully qualified guide and a member of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association. It will be my pleasure to take you to the most iconic corners of Scotland and to show you its hidden jams. I would love to tell you about Scotland's beautiful nature, its ancient history, and its remarkable people. Legends and true stories, latest news and local rumors - I love storytelling. And I love good food! Freshest local products along with sophisticated high-end cuisine are already a good reason to visit Scotland. A world traveler myself, I know what it is to be a guest to a foreign country and I would like to help you to make the best of your visit to Scotland and make it an excellent and memorable experience.

I am a fully-qualified Blue Badge guide with experience all around Scotland. If your guests want to find out all about Edinburgh and Scotland then I am the guide you need. I am proud of Scotland and its history and wear the kilt when I can! I have also lived in Spain and Italy and guide in Italian too, I have had a number of different work and cultural experiences and I also currently work as a teacher - teaching English to foreign students and I have met and enjoyed teaching English to a number of Japanese students too! I have a wide range of interests with my knowledge of the history of Scotland being my top passion, with perhaps the Jacobite struggle being my favourite period. I am also enthusiastic about the geography and nature of this wonderful country so I can talk in detail about the wildlife that you will see when you are here. Another great interest of mine is Sport and in particular football and golf. I can’t wait to show you as much as possible in your time here and make sure that your stay was fun, enjoyable and that you have acquired a lot of knowledge about Scotland!
