Meet the Ness Bus Tours Crew!

Our greatest asset; our passionate, knowledgeable and entertaining Driver-Guides.

They work incredibly hard to make your tour of Scotland interesting, enjoyable, unique and unforgettable!

Ryan

Ryan is an Edinburgh boy, born-and-bred. A family man, Ryan’s a dad to 4 kids who’ve turned his hair grey pretty quickly over the last few years.

A natural tour guide, and suffering from a mid-life crisis, he wants to “run a marathon before he dies” (…better hurry up!!), and enjoys discovering Scotland’s lesser-known spots with his family, on his time off from work. An ex-boyband member, they don’t come friendlier than Ryan.

Just ignore his bad jokes (…it’s the only way to make him stop!). Ryan joined the company in early 2016, and has proven quite a hit with our guests. He’s passionate about showing our passengers the very best of Scotland, each and every day that he is out on the road.

“We were in Scotland celebrating my birthday and our wedding anniversary and I am so glad we decided to take this trip. Ryan was our guide and he was phenomenal. He was super knowledgeable and I have learned more about Scotland and it’s history in that day than all the studying I’ve done since finding out about my Scottish heritage”.

“Our bus driver/ guide (Ryan) really knew the land around him. Not only did he tell us the stories of such people as Mary Queen of Scots, William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, Sean Connery, etc., but he also gave us a good scientific overview of the geological formations we were driving on and the general use of the land up to modern day and looking into the future.”

Graham

Graham hails from Hamilton, in West Central Scotland, and lists our only Theme Park as a nearby landmark. He has been with Ness Bus since early 2017 and has become a firm favourite with our guests.

It was was a combination of his love of Scotland and his own love of travelling which convinced him to enter the world of tour-guiding. Having been on numerous tours around the world, he knew he had the personality (and patience!) to do the job. Graham goes out of his way to make everybody on his tours feel at home and will no doubt be asking plenty of travel tips for your own country!

He’s passionate about music, having recently been to see Celine Dion and Elton John in Las Vegas, and regularly serenades his guests with Christmas ballads… be warned! Aside from music, Graham’s other passions in life are “Christmas and Halloween” (apparently), Snowboarding and Hockey. He’s a massive Ottawa Senators fan!

He can’t wait to welcome you all on tour!

“The Ness Bus tour was by far one of the best tours I have ever experienced. Our driver come guide, the very very fun Graham made us laugh throughout the journey with his jokes and stories. It was so enjoyable. We learnt so much about Whisky, and we are now using those very valuable tips when we make our purchases.”

“I had a fantastic, fun and informative day on the Ness Buss seeing some of the wonderful sights of Scotland. Our tour guide for the day was Graham and he made the day a very enjoyable experience. He was informative, fun and made sure we were all looked after.

I would highly recommend this tour, and this company. Although I only went on the one tour it was obvious that they take their work seriously, ensuring they provide an informative, enjoyable and fun tour of beautiful Scotland. I can’t wait to go back and enjoy some more experiences!”

Michael

Michael grew up in Falkirk, deep within the historic heartlands where William Wallace and Robert the Bruce fought some of their most famous battles against the ‘Auld Enemy’ (England), it is only right that Michael would eventually go on to tell these stories to guests visiting our country.

Michael seen our buses as they drove towards the Highlands each day, and knew it was his his dream job to jump behind the steering-wheel of the Ness Bus!

A natural-born story-teller, he’s become an expert on all things Scottish, not just William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. He loves the scenery of the Highlands, and above all else, showing it off to the world!

When he isn’t driving guests around the Highlands, Michael is a body-building, snow-boarding, and a Dad to three beautiful weans (that’s Scots for kids!). Don’t be alarmed if you see Michael having a picnic-lunch at every single stop during your tour… he’s probably in training for a body-building competition!

The tour was beautiful and our guide, Michael was amazing; very funny guy… I would highly suggest this tour to anyone.”

“We had Micheal as our bus driver, he was funny, friendly, professional, and very knowledgable of his historical data. He loved his job and had an infectious passion for his Scottish culture ! Would rate him 10/10. He was very accomodating, polite and patient with all the passengers.”

What a wonderful experience this was! Our tour guide Michael was very entertaining and his knowledge of the countryside and its history was amazing!”
