Anne Gascoigne

I have lived in Orkney for 12 years yet still not explored all that these islands have to offer! Not a very good advert for an 'expert' Guide - but it just goes to show you, how much we really have here.


Since 2005 I have been helping guests discover Orkney for themselves, and I work as a ‘step-on guide’ (in your own vehicle; car or coach) or can meet you for a stroll at a location of your choice.  


My tours reflect my interest in the Natural History of Orkney - Mainland and Isles.  I am an occasional birdwatcher, but prefer botany, as wildflowers are easier to locate and remain still whilst you are looking at or photographing them!


I am interested in seas and landscape, history, farming and the weather, and appreciate the ever-changing Orkney light - and darkness.


My tours are relaxed and informal, and offer plenty opportunity to just look, admire and to daydream.
