Life began as a skinny lad with a curious nature. Time was well spent roaming the countryside, ‘playing’ on the cliffs of East Yorkshire and being taken to historical houses and castles by my Mum. Then on joining the army, Her Majesty gave me 3
square meals a day (making me a bit less skinny) and made use of my curiosity!
After 23 years at Her Majesty’s pleasure, travelling the world for better or worse (think climbing in Colorado, walking in Scotland, skiing in Norway, kayaking in Cyprus for the former; don’t worry about the latter), my lovely Scottish wife and I moved to Scotland and opened our B&B.
Currently, I’m the President of the Moray Mountaineering Club and am a Munro Compleator (having reached the summit of all Scottish 3000′ summits). With a slight change of tack, I’m now halfway through bagging Scottish malt whisky distilleries.
