MEET THE TEAM
Mark Williamson is both the Owner of Highland Chauffeur Drive, and the youngest member of the Team. A keep-fit enthusiast, when time permits, he has had a consuming interest in all things car since his childhood. His initial interest in the mechanical workings was eventually replaced by a desire to own and drive fast, high-end Mercedes and other such vehicles, principally for Chauffeur Driving, Touring and Guiding; in 2008 he achieved that aim. Being a friendly well-read Invernesian, who has travelled extensively in the UK, and further afield, his wide geographical knowledge is complemented by a broad understanding of Scottish History, in particular, that associated with the infamous Highland Clearances.
Alex Williamson is Mark’s father; he works part-time with Mark, in what is largely a family business, while also ensuring that the Fleet is always turned out impeccably. Alex is a qualified Cooper, having been trained in the original Speyside Cooperage at Craigellachie. He was also a Mashman for many years, hence his extensive knowledge of the Whisky Industry remains unsurpassed. His encyclopaedic knowledge of the area, and its history, makes for a highly interesting Tour, where Alex’s humour and wit is never far away. His warmth and driving skills are obvious from the outset.
Ewen Robertson is an open and friendly retired Chartered Building Surveyor who enjoys meeting clients from all around the World. He has worked for Mark for some years, and understands the high standards that Mark insists on. Ewen is IAM-trained, hence safe defensive driving is the norm. Born in Skye, and going to school in Beauly wearing a Kilt, while speaking only Gaelic, was some start! He is a qualified Deer Stalker, wildlife enthusiast, ex-shinty player, and Spey Casting Instructor, so if you want a short Grass Casting Session as part of your day, please just ask.
Mark has several other dependable drivers that assist as necessary. They all meet Mark’s exacting standards, hence you can be assured of a safe and memorable day out, irrespective of who is at the wheel.
