Me in three - Inquisitive | Gregarious | Chipper
My favourite place in Scotland - Argyll
My Scottish hero is -  Scottish Scientist James Clerk Maxwell


I moved to Coatbridge in Scotland at a very young age.  The region is called Lanarkshire, which was then at the centre of Scotland’s industrial heartland.  After High School, I qualified as an Environmental Health Officer and worked in various Local Government posts till early retirement as a senior manager in 2010.  I also served as an officer in the Territorial Army, and retired as a Major.

My passion for Scotland defines me and I avidly seek information about all aspects cultural, historical, political and geographical. My mother’s family background is Scottish and Irish which has given me a deep fascination for Celtic History, Music, Culture, Literature and Poetry.  My activities are varied and include genealogy, fly fishing, gardening, aviculture and our Border Terrier, Tia, but I place my family and friends above all of these.  Not a lot of people know that my love for Scottish music had me toying with folk singing at one time - when they hear me sing that probably never occurs to them!

I love working for BST because of the close-knit family atmosphere in the team.  Also, the size of our tours provides the chance to meet small groups of people and to develop a closer tie with them than would be the case in a larger tour.  There are many responsibilities for a driver/guide with Best Scottish Tours but I believe the most important one is to ensure that guests thoroughly enjoy their tour with us.

What people say...
"THANK YOU Best Scottish Tours and THANK YOU to our tour driver Terry. This trip was above and beyond my expectations. Terry our tour guide made the trip - his depth and wealth of knowledge of all things, his beautiful personality, his warmth, his love of his country and his ability to adapt to our interests and needs - absolutely fantastic! Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for the trip of lifetime."Nicole Batts - New Zealand
'Our tour guide, Terry, was exceptional in his driving skills, knowledge of Scotland, his flexibility and general overall helpfulness, kindness, and sense of humor. He also had a love of Scottish music and played some as we toured, and taught us some Gaelic!! Him, along with my two fabulous tour mates helped make the tour feel like I was with family, and I was sad when it was over.'Sonja A, Texas
