Robin was born in Ayrshire, and after a spell in Aberdeen, has lived and worked in Edinburgh since arriving as a student in the '70s. He has guided since 2012 and loves sharing with visitors his fascination with this spectacular city and how it has evolved over the centuries. Robin takes a keen interest in Scottish history and also has a special passion for the country's traditional song and music. He believes no day in Edinburgh is complete without a coffee and cake in a carefully selected cafe, or, depending on the time of day, a pint of real ale in one of the many fine pubs, whether on or off the tourist trail.
