Angela Gillespie

Based in a small fishing village in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, Angela has been leading travelers on adventures for more than 28 years. She has guided in parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, the US, and Canada, but spends the bulk of her summers guiding on mountain and coastal trails in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, the Faroe Islands, and the Shetland Islands. “I immensely enjoy showing off these wonderful landscapes and wholly individual cultures to our guests. Each visit gives me a new and deeper insight into life in these special places and I am very lucky to be able to share that.” Angela dons her snow skis in the winter months to work as a ski instructor in the French and Swiss Alps. Her personal journeys have taken her on a month-long skiing expedition in Greenland, to the snowy peaks of the Lofoten Islands in Norway, and on a sailing adventure from Minorca to Valencia, to name a few. She has a son and a grandson—her newest skiing and mountaineering companion. “All in all I am a very happy nomad!”
