About Me

  • Areas of knowledge/interest: Fascinated with Edinburgh’s amazingly rich historic architecture. The builders of Edinburgh left us a plethora of clues in architecture, sculpture and streetscape. To those who care to notice, the historic fabric of the city speaks its tales. The architectural tours of Edinburgh are designed to tell a story based on the buildings and their details. These subjects are used to explain the influences that shaped the development of the city, aspirations of building patrons and architects.
  • Hobbies: Arts and crafts: sketching, painting, jewellery making. Sports and Travel: hiking, mountain biking, camping, diving, bird-watching.
