Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

In this AirBnB Experience you will get to know Inverness in a new light. We will meet at Falcon Square, right in the centre of the city and will jump straight into two hours of stories of the Highlands. The tour will include all the information you might expect from a classic walking tour and just so much more.

Story-telling has always been important for communities, we already see evidence of that in the iron ages. You might have heard of Inverness' connection to Shakespeare's Macbeth, however, there are so many more stories that need telling.

From Falcon Square onwards it will be short walks from one Inverness sight to the next, in between which I will tell you where the name Inverness originates from, teach you a couple of words of Gaelic and tell the stories worth telling. The tour is constructed in a way that there will be no long and silent walks. Instead we will stop every couple of minutes at places that are either a must-see or just a personal favourite of mine. You will fall in love with the Victorian Market Dog, see Macbeth in a new light and be surprised by the prophecies of the Brahan Seer.

We will end at Falcon Square from where I can show you to great places for a dram of Whisky, or some lunch or afternoon tea, depending on the time the tour starts/finishes (price for food not included in tour).

Message me if you want another time or the tour in German!

I am a German lass with her heart lost in the Highlands. I came to study the people and the culture and never truly left. Now I have put down roots and want others to feel the same.

Literature, culture, and conversations with different people are my passions. By offering AirBnB Experiences I am able to connect visitors to the place I lost my heart to. Now I want to share my knowledge about the town I love. Especially literature seems to be under-represented in tours for visitors which is what I am aiming to change.

I will share my knowledge and passion on myths, legends, stories, and prophecies. I am an expert on literature as I have studied it at university for six years and am now working on my PhD.

Her skal du være

We will walk around the inner city centre of Inverness. The walking part of the tour is about 2,5km (c. 1,6 miles) depending on how the group works together and how everyone is feeling about the walking.

There will only be a little uphill walking to get to Inverness Castle. Some steps might be along the way, but if there are any difficulties with steps, we can take another way.

A great introduction to Inverness. Alexandra brings lots of local facts, a passion for history and her personal experiences which really brought Inverness to life for us. A really friendly and engaging person - her English is outstanding - the two hours flew by. The Tunnocks caramel was a lovely extra touch! Would highly recommend.

Alexandra was very knowledgable, went to places we wouldn’t have known about and was extremely helpful. Gave useful tips about the locality as well.

A "Must do tour" of Inverness. Alex shares her passion with lots of stories, historical and cultural references. She makes Inverness not only a very beautiful city but also a very cultural one.

Alexandra hat mich schon vor der Tour mit ganz vielen hilfreichen Tipps versorgt, die mir die Anreise nach Inverness erleichtert haben. Während der Tour konnten wir jederzeit Fragen stellen und sie wurden immer sehr herzlich beantwortet. Durch die vielen persönlichen Sachen, die geteilt wurden, hat mir diese Tour sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Ich habe vieles gelernt, was mir durch die anregende Art der Erzählung, in Erinnerung bleiben wird.

So, this was the first tour after Scotland lockdown. Social distancing is not a problem due to the nature of the tour. To make things better, not many people nor vehicles on the street. I got an opportunity to understand Scottish kilt and clan crest. Alex was good at explaining the history and dressing. Very informative and solid two hours. Time well spent.

I really enjoyed my city tour with Alex. She speaks English perfectly, she's easily identifiable when meeting if it had been busy - she's the one in the yellow hat in the photos. Alex is a PhD student in the subject so does know what she's talking about and is really friendly and warm. I joined a small group for this tour and we all seemed to have a great time. I'd certainly recommend it.
