About Us

We are the McKelvies, Robin and Jenny, the husband and wife travel writing team behind InsiderScotland.com. As a team we wrote both the National Geographic Guide to Scotland and Scotland: Cool Camping and we each have over a decade of experience in writing about Scotland for numerous newspapers, magazines and Internet sites.

Robin McKelvie

I (www.robinmckelvie.com) have been a full time travel writer, photographer and broadcaster since 1997 (and member of the British Guild of Travel Writers since 1998) and have now travelled to and written about over 100 countries. My travel writing and photography has appeared in 100s of magazines and newspapers across five continents including the Daily Mail, Scotsman, Guardian, Independent on Sunday, National Geographic, Wanderlust, CNN Traveller and the Australian. Guidebooks I have authored for the AA, Thomas Cook, Bradt, Globetrotter, Insight, Berlitz, Footprint and National Geographic include numerous Scottish titles as well as books on Croatia, Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Hong Kong and Bermuda. Each month I also do a live travel slot (almost always with a Scottish element) for the John Beattie show on BBC Radio Scotland. You can follow my travel writing on other countries on Twitter @robinmckelvie.

Jenny McKelvie

I (www.jennymckelvie.com) have been travel writing either full time or part time since 1998 and have now travelled to or written about over 50 countries. My credits include TNT, InBritain, the Scotsman, Daily Mail the Guardian and numerous internet sites. I have also contributed to guidebooks for the AA, Bradt, Globetrotter and National Geographic. My toughest but most rewarding job to date has been as mum to our two well travelled daughters, Tara and Emma.
