Hello! Introducing Alex the Guide

I’m Alex the Guide.

I have lived up here in the far north since the spring of 2009 and have grown to love the region over the years. Now I’d like to share it with you and your family and friends.

Prior to living here, I was in Africa for ten years and very much involved in wildlife conservation. The relationship to tourism and impact on local communities were my concerns in the last five years in Zambia.

In the spring of 2021 I qualified as a specialist tourist guide for the North Highlands. I have also been studying at the University of the Highlands and Islands, Institute for Northern Studies to discover more about the Vikings and the Picts.

My particular interests include history, politics, nature, science, food and drink, and well pretty much everything except television and sport. I can talk about everything except the latest antics of celebrities and sports teams and the top TV programmes.

I look forward to hearing from you and even better seeing you soon, so do get in contact.
