Ben Thorburn – Head of Marketing

Place to Play – Living and working in the Cairngorms National Park is amazing but being from the west coast, I don’t think you can beat the iconic mountains of Assynt and Coigach.

Not a lot of people know this – I failed my Bronze DofE after some shoddy map reading within the first half a mile. We were given a second chance on day 2 and promptly managed to get lost then too.

Mini Bio – I was brought up in the picturesque west coast community of Lochcarron in the Scottish Highlands and I remember listening to the stags eerily roaring across the loch each autumn. Ever since my childhood I’ve had a strong connection with the landscape and nature; it enthuses me and feeds my soul.

I’m the Marketing Manager at Wilderness Scotland and I hope my love and enthusiasm for Scotland’s wild places inspires people to visit such an incredible place.

Outside of work I’m to be found in my natural habitat; the mountains, whether skiing, on a mountain bike or walking. I’m also a keen gardener and try my best to grow our own fruit and veg. If we have a good crop then the Wilderness Scotland Farm Shop is open for business.
