She brings vast professional expertise and local knowledge to your ancestral tour or clan enquiries. We will work with you via email, telephone, Facebook, ZOOM or Skype to carry out research before your tour. to ensure you get the most out of it.

It is important to us that we ensure our personal Family History Report is comprehensive, and that the bespoke ancestral or clan tour, and/or family meetings or gathering, make your trip to Scotland very, very special! We create a ‘personal bespoke package’ to suit individual interests and research outcome depending on the results of your research.

Research can be challenging in some instances. Many are surprised to find they have Scots-Irish or colonial connections – and this opens up a whole new avenue of research and family history for them.

Local knowledge makes a world of difference. Tailor-made tours are crafted by trusted local experts, once your family history has been researched and your tour outline agreed. The big question is: how long do you want to spend on your ancestry tour?

Be warned, it will be a very emotional tour when you walk in the ‘footsteps of your ancestors’!
