About Chemin d’Ecosse
Chemin d’Ecosse founders, Fanny and Will, are a couple passionate about Scotland, trekking and nature. They live in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, capital of Scotland. They moved with their cat Marcel and their dog Simone to share their adventure.
Fanny has been a tour guide for 5 years, used to bring clients in the most unusual places in the country. She knows all the roads and shortcuts that lead to the most beautiful beaches, to the best walks and of course to the warmest pubs. Will was also a tour guide, he would drive tourists all over the country, he knows the history of Scotland by heart and has the best stories.
After a few years spent working for large travel agencies, the couple realized how mass tourism could hurt such a beautiful country.
