Heritage interpretation consultant and trainer, based in Edinburgh, Scotland

My work helps people to explore interesting places and their stories. I hope that sometimes it also helps them fall in love with those places.

I aim to find inspiring, unusual ways to conjure the spirit of a place, tell interesting tales in a few words, and give visitors space to make their own experiences. I work with major nature reserves, historic sites, national museums, and favourite spots just on the doorstep.

Heritage interpretation and visitor experience

Heritage interpretation, the art of encouraging people to appreciate and learn about heritage sites, is central to my work. I believe that the best interpretation comes from thinking about everything that a site offers to visitors, so I often work with designers, architects, landscape architects and artists to deliver memorable and effective projects. I have over thirty years’ experience in this field and have helped to shape many aspects of good practice. Get in touch if you’d like to know more.
