YOUR GUIDE

Craig Webster

I am Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. I was born in 1518 in the village of Glenfinnan on the shores of Loch Shiel. And I am immortal.

Just kidding. I am Craig Webster of the non-existent clan Webster. I was born in 1987 in the maternity ward of an Edinburgh Hospital. I could be immortal. I certainly haven’t died thus far. For anyone who hasn’t understood this reference, you really must watch the 1986 classic movie “Highlander” starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. I implore you. 

I love talking about Scottish history, geography, engineering and teaching people how to swear in Scots. 

You should definitely come and experience Scotland with me. As we say in the old country, “Yer a lang time deid!”
