I am a Tour Guide.


Hello there! I'm Glen, your friendly local host here in Edinburgh. I have a deep passion for our city's rich history and stunning architecture. Walking through our streets is like stepping into a storybook, with sandstone buildings standing proudly under the watchful eye of Edinburgh Castle. I adore visiting museums and art galleries, and there's nothing I enjoy more than grabbing a new book and finding a cozy bench to get lost in a new but familiar world. As a guru in Edinburgh’s history, I’ve been sharing tales of our churches, ghost stories, and the vibrant traditions that make our city unique. From Newhaven Harbour at the Royal Britannia to the whisky pubs of the Georgian New Town, I know every nook and cranny. Let me show you the magic of Edinburgh – you’ll leave with a smile and a story to tell!
