Nigel has spent many years travelling around Scotland acting as a driver guide for numerous visitors from all over the world, in addition to which he has arranged customised tours for large groups and persons wishing to undertake self-drive (driving) tours.

A particular theme of many visitors from North America and Australasia has been their desire to connect with Scottish ancestry information on which can be found in the book.
