Delightful Donald

 

Donald was so well informed and was always telling us stories and the history. He was so funny and kind and even took us to a stop not on the itinerary which was just beautiful!

MEET OUR DRIVER-GUIDES: DONALD

 

What are 3 things you couldn't live without?

Probably the most difficult question but I settled for my camera, golf clubs & library ticket although my specs & bus pass nearly made it!

 

What is your Favourite Timberbush Tour?

Of the 10 regular tours, Skye (easily my favourite, followed by the two 2-day tours). However I also greatly enjoy the variety of the private tours.

 

What is the best thing about being a Driver-Guide?

I am intensely proud of Scotland - its beautiful scenery, its history and its people - and I take great delight & pride in showing it off to our visitors from abroad.

 

Your favourite Scottish destination?

Barra but the other Outer Hebridean islands and the North-west Highlands are all incredibly beautiful.

 

Is there something about Scotland, or the Scots, you wish everyone knew?

Another tricky one but possibly that we do get some great weather sometimes!

 

What is your favourite Scottish dish?

I love Cullen skink, haggis & venison - it's difficult to pick just one.

 

The best thing to do in Edinburgh?

In Edinburgh, a walk down the Royal Mile then into Holyrood Park before going up Calton Hill for the fantastic views. 

 

What is your favourite Scottish band or song?

Capercaillie. As for songs I never tire of listening to Moira Kerr singing "Always Argyll" but of course there are many great Scottish songs & pieces of music.
