My Story

From being filmed in my wee antiques shop in a small village in the Highlands of Scotland to the screens of millions of people in just 18-months!

And now – almost 5-years later – I find myself working across several shows and have made numerous other appearances…I still pinch myself most days !


I didn’t go looking for ‘fame’ and it had to look pretty hard to find me in my wee corner of the Scottish Highlands but thanks to the BBC show, Antiques Roadtrip, I now find myself juggling my career as an antiques dealer, TV ‘expert’ and presenter.

After a visit to our shop in early 2015 I got a call from the producers, a few months after it was broadcast, in early 2016. I was asked if I would consider joining the BBC team of experts!

After 12-months of meetings, shadowing, screen tests and lots of studying (!) I was told I was ‘in’ and joined the legend Phil Serrell for my baptism on the BBC Antiques Roadtrip.

Clothes & Boots !

What can I say? I have an eclectic and sometimes unique fashion sense and as for shoes & boots…what else is a girl to do except dress to impress!

Kilcreggan Antiques

Kilcreggan Antiques came about quite by (bad) luck when suddenly, and unexpectedly, in 2013 my wonderful Dad passed away. I was heartbroken and devastated. Then just 3-weeks later my husband Mark also lost his father to a long battle with cancer.

We walked away from our senior corporate jobs and focused on taking care of our widowed mothers. I’d always loved antiques and had developed a keen eye so my husband suggested we ‘go for it’ – and Kilcreggan Antiques was born. Out of some of my darkest days came a sliver of light. Fate ?
