Having started out in Glasgow on a Business Degree, I was lucky enough to take an adventure to America which was truly transformational. Fortunately, that transformation meant that by the time I got home I could think of nothing worse to do than a business degree!
I instead relocated to Fort William, studied Adventure Tourism Management and started doing things I actually wanted to do! Many mountains, events, books and (mis)adventures around the world later I stumbled into Wilderness Scotland and instantly fell in love with the place.

Lochaber has so many spots to get lost in, but you can usually find your way back to Ben Nevis – and you should! There are so many ways up (and down). The Ben in all seasons, and the view seems to change just slightly every time I’m up there. If you don’t want to gain all that altitude then the climbing in Pol Dubh is second to none for variety, ranging from a lazy amble up some slabs or tackling more technical overhangs.
The scenery ain’t bad either.

I once ate chocolate pudding above the snowline in California to make Kerouac jealous, and I don’t even like chocolate pudding all that much!
