    Mini Bio

    Originally from Fife. I moved to the Highlands in 2018 to study at the School of Adventure Studies in Fort William for the Adventure Tourism Management Degree. While studying, I gained qualifications in Mountain biking and other sports and did two years of coaching and guiding at Nevis Range, the home of the Downhill World Cup. My passion for the outdoors helped me to create a career, especially with a focus on resilience and mental health through outdoor exploring in Scotland and
    Greenland. The Highlands are my home and always will be. After finishing my degree in the spring of 2023, I moved to the Cairngorms to work as an Operations Assistant, starting my next big adventure chapter.

    Place to Play

    Anywhere in the Highlands and everywhere that has sustainable mountain bike trails! Aonach ridge in glencoe. Sgor Gaoith in Glen Feshie – stunning loch from above and a fantastic descent down on the mountain bike. CMD arete in Fort William. The Forcan Ridge in Kintail. Glenlivet for mountain biking. Laggan brown side for mountain biking.

    I have been on several trips with Wilderness Scotland so I had very high expectations of the trip to Shetland. They were surpassed even on the first day, I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Although I always go by myself it feels as though I have spent the time with my best friends by the end of the trip. Perfect from start to finish. Thankyou
