My favourite Timberbush tour is the Skye tour. I've been on this tour many times now and it covers many beautiful areas of Scotland - Loch Lomond, Glencoe, The Great Glen and Skye. There's so much history on Skye from the last two thousand years and the scenery is beautiful.
The best thing about being a driver-guide is seeing so much of Scotland's scenery and meeting many interesting people.
My favourite place in Scotland is Glenfinnan. It has a great history with the Jacobite rising starting there and the world-famous Glenfinnan viaduct crosses there - a bridge that my great great grandfather Alexander Simpson was consulting engineer for.
One piece of information about Scotland that I would like the world to know about is that Scotland was the first nation in the world to express it's sovereignty, independence and nationhood in a document - the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320, supposedly an inspiration for the American declaration of Independence.
My favourite Scottish music is Runrig. They are a folk/rock band who blend atmospheric Scottish sounds into their music. Many passengers like their music and ask about them.
My favourite Scottish delight has to be haggis which I often recommend passengers to try (to varying levels of success) although I have increasingly become partial to Cullen Skink soup - haddock, potatoes and onions.
The most iconic Scottish person has to be King Robert Bruce - Scotland's hero king who overcame great struggles and persecutions to lead the Scots army to their greatest victory, despite overwhelming odds, at Bannockburn in 1314.
Having recently bought a bike and taken up cycling, I think one of the greatest Scottish inventions is the pedal cycle, invented by Scotsman Kirkpatrick MacMillan. Don't think many car drivers would agree with that though!
