Scott was brought up and still lives in East Kilbride just south of Glasgow. As a child, his parents introduced him to the outdoors with camping and road trips all over Scotland. This continued into his adult life along with other activities such as hillwalking and skiing.
His love of Scotland and love of Scottish history grew when he joined a living history re-enactment society called the White Cockade over 26 years ago. The White Cockade is a society of skilled interpreters who educate and entertain in specific regard to the Jacobite era.
Since then Scott has worked all over Scotland promoting and teaching Scottish history to the public alongside the organisations of the National Trust for Scotland and Historic Scotland at sites such as Stirling and Edinburgh Castles, Bannockburn, Culloden Battlefield, Glenfinnan, Urquhart Castle, Glen Coe and Killiecrankie as well as others. This experience over the years has also led to working with some BBC documentaries and other film work and he has also worked with Ian Deveney’s company, Battlescar.
As a keen camper and hillwalker he has travelled all over Scotland. His passion and love for its history and stories just keeps growing. That is why he made the transition into tour-guiding. Scott felt that it was time to give back, and to share what he has spent a lifetime enjoying.
Scott’s car is a Hyundai i800. It carries up to seven passengers, It is a roomy car which is fully air conditioned.
