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. Before learning how to explain and
interpret the history and culture of his native land by training to become a professionally qualified Scottish Tourist Guide, he practised Scots law. 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 lawyers and trainee tourist guides.
