I’m originally from Yorkshire but once I moved up to the Cairngorms in 2007, I knew I was here to stay! I can most often be found running and biking on the local roads and trails and swimming in the lochs. I also love skiing, canoeing and sea kayaking and I do get dragged up a climb or two a year by my super keen partner, but usually end up belaying for him, as long as we can get cake afterwards. Although I work in the office day to day, I do like to get out on the odd trip or two.
Place to Play
The Cairngorms National Park. It’s my home and I love it. There are so many places to explore; lochs, forests, mountains, rivers with some rare wildlife. I’ve been here years now and I’ve only just scratched the surface.
Not a lot of people know this
I once greeted all the dignitaries arriving at Buckingham Palace for a garden party, including Tony Blair who was the prime minister at the time.
