I was delighted to see this review for my colleague Liam on TripAdvisor this morning (and thanks to Shageldon from Boston Mass for writing it!)…

Red bearded: yup, that's Liam alright. But Scottish? Not quite, although it's an easy mistake to make…
This is one of my favorite conversations when leading London Walks. It goes something like this:
London Walker: So which part of Ireland are you from?
Me: Scotland. Or sometimes it goes like this:
London Walker: Is that an Irish accent?
Me: No. It's the other one.
London Walker: Oh! You're SCOTTISH! It seems that my fine Irish colleague Liam gets the same conversation from the other end!
I certainly take no offense in being mistaken for an Irishman: poets and great storytellers every one of them. Reminds me of that wonderful Kenneth Tynan line (he was writing about Brendan Behan): The English hoard words like misers: the Irish spend them like sailors on leave.
Not wishing to speak on Liam's behalf but perhaps he feels the same way about being mistaken for a Scot? Maybe that's why he's cultivating the red beard, like Scotland's finest ambassador, Groundskeeper Willie…

Okay, here's a better likeness…

The first is me leading the Somewhere Else London tour, the second is Liam leading The Old Palace Quarter…
