Why Scotland?

My grandmother was a Mackenzie born in Tarbert on the Isle of Harris off the west coast, so my love of Scotland must be in my genes.

In 1993 I decided to escape the rat-race and spent nearly four months touring Scotland by bus, train and ferry from Arran to Orkney.
Three years later I produced The Internet Guide to Scotland full of information for travellers to the Highlands and Islands.

In June 1998 I was finally able to follow my heart and move to Inverness in Scotland, the home of my soul. In so doing, I took on my grandmother's surname as a public, yet personal, posthumous way of thanking her for the love of Scotland which has become my life.

From the lone shieling of the misty island
Mountains divide us, and a waste of seas; yet
Still the blood is strong; the heart is Highland
And we in dreams behold the Hebrides

( Canadian Boat Song, circa 1829 )
