Having lived in the area all her life she is well placed to point you in the direction of all the marvellous places of interest, be it hill walking, mountain biking, fishing, golfing, ski-ing or simply sightseeing. Her speciality is whisky, having worked as a tour guide at a few of the famous distilleries in Speyside.
