Mike has a love of Scotland deep in his heart and expresses it through his music, art and guiding.
Trained at Dundee Art College he moved into teaching Art and Design at High Schools in Scotland as well as in the U.S.
A change in career beckoned through concentrating on his painting full time and exhibiting his work in the U.K ., Europe and the United States. He has work in many collections both public and private.
Musical training and membership of various prize winning pipe bands has held him in good stead and today Mike is an accomplished event and wedding piper.
A great love of his native land and huge enthusiasm for meeting and welcoming people of all nationalities spurred him into completing the highly sought after Scottish Blue Badge Tourist Guiding Qualification accredited by the the Scottish Tourist Guides Association as well as Edinburgh University.
He is experienced in guiding groups of all ages and nationalites with a wide spectrum of interests ranging through Whisky, Golf, Museums, Traditional Scottish Music, Castles and the stunningly beautiful Scottish Highland landscape. “Outlander” Tours are also a great favourite and pleasure for him to guide as he is an avid fan of the series
