As Director of Training my role is to support the guiding team to be as skilled and knowledgeable as they can be, giving you an adventure experience that you will never forget. I am Course Director for the award winning Wild Scotland Wilderness Guide Training Programme. I also support our Operations team in many aspects of training, safety, and product development.
Alongside my office responsibilities, I spend a lot of time guiding throughout Scotland and overseas. Guiding is my first love, but I am also an Associate Instructor at Sport Scotland’s National Centre at Glenmore Lodge and run a range of paddlesport leader training and assessment courses in Sea Kayak and Open Canoe.
My other ‘job’ is as a Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Adventure Tourism Management & MSc Ecotourism degrees for The University of The Highlands & Islands.
Place to Play
Almost anywhere on the west or northern coasts and islands of Scotland. If I have to choose, then Shetland never fails to blow my mind.
