Scotland is the home of my soul. I realize that statement might seem a bit odd, but it truly expresses and defines my love for this country. For over twenty years, I’ve worked hard exploring, experiencing, and learning about this amazing country. With every visit, I tour hotel/resort properties, establish and maintain essential local contacts, learn about new tours and attractions, interview and hire private guides to lead tours and excursions, visit new restaurants and local eateries, and personally experience a variety of transportation options – from trains, ferries, and buses, to hiring a private car and driver.
My love for the United Kingdom - literally - runs through my blood. My mother was born and reared in Wales and I'm fortunate to have many relatives throughout the region. Over the years - and starting at the age of 8 - I traveled many times to England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Together, as we work to plan your upcoming adventure across the pond, I will share with you the best castles to visit and why, the proper way to order food and drink at a pub, where to purchase missing travel necessities at a reasonable cost, what to buy for that special someone back home and...where to have the best high-tea experience in London. My unique perspective on the UK ensures that you - my valued client - enjoy an "insider's" view of this dynamic destination and ALL that it offers.

Walnut Creek, California
I've been in the travel business for many years. And when asked my favorite destination in the world, I always answer SCOTLAND! The history, the natural beauty of the countryside, the castles especially Inveraray and Edinburgh, and the great food - including fresh seafood, Scottish favorites such haggis, bangers, and mash; plus, the true Scottish dessert - shortbread. Other reasons you'll love Scotland is the opportunity to self-drive, island-hop from island to island (an amazing opportunity); tour famous, historic cities such as Edinburgh and in Glasgow where you can spend time in the West End known for quaint shops and lots of parks, and the opportunity to view the magnificent art and architecture of the Victorian era. There is more to see and do for both Harry Potter fans and Outlander, and for those who hope to see the mystical monster Nessie when you stop at Loch Ness.
