Scott has been in the industry since leaving school in 1988.  We call him the lens wizard because there is nothing he does not know about lenses and how they perform.

He is a master glazer and only works to the highest of standards.

When I am not working you will find me travelling the world, cycling or climbing a hill.


I have nearly 20 years experience working in busy high street practices across central Scotland.  In addition I also work for the Diabetic Screening Service across Argyll and Bute.

When I am not working I play the bagpipes for Scottish Power Pipe Band travelling the country taking part in all major pipe band competitions. My son Callum has recently taken up pipe band drumming and daughter Zoe is a champion Scottish Highland dancer.


I have over 21 year’s industry experience and I am known to give a very honest opinion on frame choice.  I also have a naughty step for anyone that takes off their glasses with one hand!

When I’m not working I spend time with family and friends and looking after my fur baby grandson Odin the American Akita.  I also love a holiday, a good book and the occasional Mojito cocktail/Cuban rum.


I joined Optical Illusion in 2018 having previously worked at a local optician.

I am also known for honesty when anyone is choosing a frame.

When I’m not working I spend time with family and friends, I love doing craft projects and have recently welcomed a new member to the family, a Spaniel puppy called Luna.  I have been known to have the occasional G&T.
