''Scotland is my favourite country in the world, and I fell in love with the country from afar after I learned my ancestors immigrated from Scotland to my home country of New Zealand.
Scotland is my passion, and I love helping people plan their trips here! I have already helped thousands of folk plan their trips to Scotland via my blog and Facebook group, Scotland Travel Tips.
I offer a balanced approach when planning a trip to Scotland – I understand what it’s like to plan your dream trip here for the first time, and I also understand Scotland as a local!''
The ‘chaos’ behind the Scottish travel blog, The Chaotic Scot, and Lonely Planet author for Scotland.
''I’m a local lassie, based in Edinburgh, yet my love affair with Scotland only began in 2010 when I accepted a job as a bus tour guide in the Highlands and Isle of Skye – despite having never visited before!
I vividly remember how I felt seeing it all for the first time, finally discovering what was right on my doorstep.
That year changed my life forever and I knew that I had to share Scotland with as many people as possible. I don’t guide tours anymore, but I still travel Scotland for a living, sharing my experiences online. I’ve explored my homeland extensively, mainly solo and on public transport, since I don’t drive.
I’m happiest when on a Scottish Island (I’ve visited 63 so far) and I love scenic walks, wild swimming, whisky and all the delicious seafood, local produce and sweet treats I can get my hands on!
Scotland is the love of my life.''
