David

David is one of Edinburgh's adopted sons and having stayed here for 4 years, his passion for Scottish history spurred the move across the pond from his native Nova Scotia ("New Scotland").

Cameron

Cameron is Edinburgh born and bred, but his love of Scotland goes much further than that. Having guided Small Group/Private Tours in Scotland for many years, Cameron most enjoys getting up to the Highlands for the scenery and the history. But with family spread all across the country, he calls many places home! PICTURE COMING SOON

Moira

Moira Macrae is about as Scottish as they come, apart from her Aussie accent! Moira was born and partly grew up in Scotland, but then her family moved 'down under' when she was just a lass. She didn't return to Bonnie Scotland for another 20 years. She's now been back long enough to acclimatise to the weather again, and we're happy to say she's part of the Local Eyes team!
