Doug

Hello, I’m Doug.

I live in Ravelston.
I work in Retired .
I hang out in Stockbidge, City Centre, Edinburgh's Old Town.

About me

I am 67 years of age, married (to Fiona) with two grown-up daughters (Hannah, 26, and Claire, 22). I was born near London (so don't have a scottish accent unfortunately), but moved to Edinburgh 35 years ago. I worked until 2013 in senior marketing and sales roles in the alcoholic drinks industry....since then I have been working as a business contractor on a part-time basis. My main interests are sports, cinema, walking, and reading. I was fortunate in my working life in being able to create working partnerships with some of the principal Edinburgh Fringe performance venues....so, since giving up full-time work I've really come to appreciate Edinburgh in August !

Edinburgh

Doug was a wonderful guide! He met us at our hotel and our tour truly gave us a local’s view of Edinburgh, away from the typical tourist sites! We learned so much about this historic city!

Learning about Edinburgh

I took a full day private tour of Edinburgh with Roxana. I had a great day learning all kinds of interesting details about the city. Edinburgh is full of mystery and beauty, almost trapped in time. Roxana's passion for the city brought this all to life. with great stories and special locations, I learned as much as I enjoyed. CityUnscripted was also great with the booking process and were quick to reply to all my questions. I recommend using them and asking for Roxana, you won't be disappointed.

Must see Edinburgh with a local

I had a great full day private tour with Roxana my guide. I can honestly say I learned a lot about both Edinburgh and medieval history. All in all it was a wonderful experience. Thanks

Child-Friendly Tour with a Local Friend

My family and I (husband and two daughters ages 9 and 11) really enjoyed our walking tour with Alana. She is lovely to spend time with and was so interesting to talk to. She showed us all the places we requested and told us things about Edinburgh that we certainly would not know if we were not locals. I highly recommend going on a tour with her!
