Expertise

I live in Edinburgh and travel a lot, myself, in Scotland. I`m especially keen on the many beautiful and remote islands, whisky distilleries and golf and can help with travelling around and good places to stay. Also reknowned, locally, as an expert on Edinburgh pubs :o)

Experience in the area

I am a travel operator myself, but also contribute to chat lines (Scotchat and Electric Scotland) on Scotland, advising prospective visitors, to help them, not to make money!

Publications

I wrote "Pack it all in", an eight page colour newspaper for the Australian Tourist Commission - a guide to budget travel in Australia and also "Stray out there" a guide to budget travel in the UK and Ireland. Updated the Fodor Guide to Scotland for 2004 - the Argyll and the Isles section.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The Haggis is a three-legged animal which lives on mountainsides. Two short legs and one long leg mean it can only go in one direction, to trap, make it turn around and it will tumble down the mountain into your waiting net.
