Jonathan Willet

I love Scotland and really enjoy showing my guests round this wonderful country.

Over the last 20 years I have gained an in-depth and wide-ranging knowledge and understanding of Scotland’s biodiversity, history, languages and landscape.  I was born just outside of Glasgow but have gravitated north to the Highland village of Maryburgh.

My career started as a wildlife guide in the Highlands nearly 20 years ago and I have been using my BSc in Zoology and MSc in Ecology  on a daily basis since then.  As well as being a qualified Blue Badge tourist guide, I also work part-time as a Biodiversity Officer for Highland Council.

I am also a National Association of Interpretation qualified Guide and Guide Trainer. I greatly enjoy walking, skiing, kayaking and cycling all over Scotland; plus looking for and at Dragonflies in the summer sunshine.

TOP TIP FOR VISITORS

Pack clothes for all seasons – You may get all seasons in one day.

IF YOU DO ONLY ONE THING IN SCOTLAND

Drink Irn Bru – Because it is made in Scotland from girders.
