Gavin Simm

Driver Guide Inverness


I am Gavin Sim and up until last year, I was a police officer with Police Scotland based in Inverness.

I have previously worked in this role In Edinburgh and in the North East Of England. After over 25 years exemplary service, I was able to retire a young 53 year old!

During my career I was fortunate to specialise in armed protection and had the privilege to look after her Majesty the Queen, Prince Philip, King Charles, and the extended Royal Family at Balmoral and other locations in Scotland. When COP 26 came to Glasgow, I was deployed to provide armed security for numerous world leaders.

I started my career in 1988, by joining the army in the Military Police. During my 6 ½ years services I was stationed in the UK and various locations overseas. I then left and joined the Police. I have a passion for the Scottish football team and went on many tours abroad clad in kilt as a member of the Tartan Army.

There were many popular destinations and more obscure locations such as the Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Croatia, and Romania to name but a few. On these trips it was great finding out about all their history and culture whilst speaking to the locals, and trying to enlighten them about life in Scotland over a pint of their local beer.

With having the Battle of Culloden on my doorstep, I have always had a keen interest of Scottish history especially dating back to Robert the Bruce period and how it links to the current King Charles III and the Royal family.

As well as Scottish history I have a keen interest in Irish history focusing on early 20th century, the partition of Ireland in 1921 to the troubles in 1969 to present day.

I love to meet new people from around the world showing them all of what Scotland has to offer and of course learn about where they have come from.
