Born in Edinburgh, brought up in Edinburgh, Edinburgh through and through, David’s studies at university for an honours degree included Scottish, British and European history. He has a lifelong familiarity with the history and architecture of his native city but still constantly wonders at its ability to change. Following a career break he studied how to explain and interpret the history and culture of his native land by taking a two-year course to become a professionally qualified Scottish Tourist Guide. His interests lie mainly in history, law - and perhaps the odd whisky! Nowadays he combines passing on knowledge through guiding across Edinburgh (and Scotland generally) with passing on knowledge through teaching trainee tourist guides.
