Western Isle Tour Guides Association was set up to provide a professional guiding service in the Outer Hebrides over 20 years ago. This was originally initiated by Marlene Macleod at Western Isles Enterprise and Stornoway Pier & Harbour Commission.
In 2020 the association has a membership of 25 guides, several guides are multi-lingual and archaeology specialists are available on request.
