David Russell (1)Me in 3 – Eating brownies/long walks in the woods/making bad jokes

Place to Play – I have a real affinity for forests, so it’s a good bet that I can be found sitting beside a pine tree watching the clouds go by.

Not a lot of people know this – I was a qualified glider pilot at age 16 – before I had a driver’s license!

Mini Bio – I studied physics before working as an instructor and guide teaching outdoor sports throughout the Highlands. After several years of guiding with Wilderness Scotland I moved into the role of Adventure Consultant, but I still get out often to share our special places with adventurers from all walks of life. I’m interested in everything about the world from astronomy to microbiology, but am especially eager to experience it first hand. I have a particular love for walking in and photographing the natural landscapes of the boreal north from Scotland to the Arctic, especially Scandinavia. I also have passions for  journeying by kayak or canoe, listening to Scottish folk music and – of course – eating brownies.
