I have been qualified as an Isle of Man registered tour guide for over 20 years. I was born and raised on the Isle of Man and some of my family I know were here in the early 1600s.
I have a Master’s Degree in Manx Studies; my degree covered the physical geology, geomorphology, flora and fauna, prehistory, history, arts, folklore, traditional culture and heritage of the Isle of Man.
I am a Manx Gaelic speaker and I am interested in the promotion of the Isle of Man’s unique heritage and culture. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the Island with people visiting here.
Qualified as a Blue Badge Guide in 1992. Worked for 20 years in Tourist information. Worked as a volunteer with Manx National National Heritage on the Calf Island Bird Sanctuary.
I am a Manx speaker and have a great interest in Gaelic and Norse place names. Can produce an itinerary for walks which include visiting the island’s diverse natural fauna, from short easy walks to slightly more energetic to suit the group’s needs.
Walks can also include the island’s industrial past, from fishing to mining.
I’m an experienced registered Blue Badge guide for groups and individuals and will plan bespoke tours if requested.
It gives me pleasure to share my knowledge of the Isle of Man and to bring its fascinating sites to life.
I have an in-depth interest in, and knowledge of:
Manx folklore, culture and Manx Gaelic, and
social, family, and natural history of the Island.
I am happy to tour with you in your vehicle – car, minibus or coach, or to guide leisurely to moderate walks around the Island’s towns, villages and countryside.
