Members of the Western Isles Tour Guide Association lined up for their official 2019 season portrait at the weekend (Saturday March 2nd) with a full season of visitors already in the books.

The WITGA guides pictured above will meet their first cruise ship of the year, the Astoria, on the 29th of March and will escort tours to the West Side and down to Harris. Co-ordinator Doro Rieder and WITGA chair Liz Carmichael will be on the pier that day.

Doro said: “All the guides involved that day are looking forward to welcoming the first cruise ship passengers of this year and to offering them a professional and enjoyable interpretation of our culture, history and landscape on the tours.”

A very busy date for the guides will be the 9th of May, when three cruise ships are scheduled to be in Stornoway on the same day.
