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 (price for food not included in tour). I can't wait to meet you!

Message me if you would like another time or to take the tour in German.

I am a German lass who lost her heart in and to the Highlands. I came to study the people and the culture and never left. I have put down roots and want others to feel as welcomed by Scotland as I was.

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 city I love. I want to show you my favourite places to experience history!

I will share my knowledge and passion on myths, legends, stories, and prophecies. As a literary historian with a focus on the Highlands currently workng on my Ph.D. I am an expert on Scottish history.

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.

We really enjoyed our Inverness walking tour with Alex today. Alex had great knowledge and really bought the tour locations to life with her great storytelling. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it (or any other tours with Alex) if looking for a great guide to accompany you in exploring the lovely city of Inverness.

This was a wonderful storytelling experience. Alex was a great and very personable host who made us feel incredibly welcome.The stories were interesting and varied, and there's something for everyone, from history buffs to literature fans to fans of the macabre. There was a very comfortable amount of walking and the time flew by. Even as a Scottish guy I learned much about my own history, and I'm sure you will too. Definitely recommended.

We had a fantastic afternoon with Alexandra discovering the history and secrets of Inverness. She was very emphatic, helpful and funny! We’ve had the children with us and they were not bothered at all. In fact my 10 year old son loved the stories. The book shop was a hidden secret. Thanks Alex for being such a great guide! Super recommend!
