“With the benefit of beautiful sunshine, Jack kept me captivated for well over an hour with his enlightening tour of Dunfermline my home town. Keep up the good work Jack!”
Lesley Anne Hunter, Dunfermline
“Expecting a proper Scot as a guide did not prepare me for the witty combination; imparted knowledge as deemed appropriate, coupled with keen insight into what I wanted from the time together. Jack delivered above and beyond. He researched my families’ history and was able to locate a living relative and spent half the day there with me. He even pulled together a photographer to record this. I plan to be back many times and would love to recommend Jack to anyone wanting a knowledgeable, friendly tour scholar!
I was promptly picked up and driven around for two days, to my delight and deep satisfaction in making a dream come true for me.
He researched beforehand and knew where my family had been and drove me to everything.
His wonderful live respect for The Carnegie Family was evident; he shared a vast knowledge of the philosophies and workings of the minds of the Carnegie’s. He understands the rich heritage left to the City of Dunfermline and appreciates it by understanding the man.”

“Jack invited us along with a group of Italian exchange students on a tour of their court house and chamber building.

It was very interesting and we met Jim Lieshman who is now the “King of Fife”…He was a legendary soccer player manager of local club

Had a great time…thanks Jack.
Cheers Grant& Maria”

We came and spent about 3 hours with you on a wonderful tour of Dunfermline. We were most interested in Andrew Carnegie and his first funded public library since Ruth worked in one in her hometown while in high school.
You are so knowledgeable about Dunfermline and its history. We learned so much from you on the tour.”

“I had a terrific walking tour with Jack for my family, who were visiting Scotland from Russia. The walking tour experience was completely different from what you can usually expect from a normal city sight seeing tour. Jack managed to tell a story of Dunfermline, from its ancient glory, through its royal connections, to Andrew Carnegie’s legacy to modern times. It was amazing
To truly get connected to it, you have to walk on those ancient streets and listen to its quiet, but glorious stories. Thank you for telling us these glorious stories, Jack”

Lana, Russia
“I was simply overwhelmed and amazed by the whole tour, exploring the Abbey and the surrounding area, the grounds, the little creek, the streets, and the Andrew Carnegie birthplace was beyond my expectations.
The time you took to answer my questions and show me little historical tidbits showed me your knowledge and your love for the area and why it’s so important to the overall history of Scotland. You are very much a gentleman and your professionalism was superb”
