    Mini Bio

    Growing up in the South of Scotland, I’ve always enjoyed being outdoors and pushing my limits – my parents were less impressed when I showed them how high I’d climbed in a tree above the electricity wires. I was lucky enough to go on a residential to Outward Bound with high school where I realized that the outdoors could be a career. I definitely saw myself in our instructor Tom, who dragged us up an extra hill to look at some lichen. Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with folks from age 3 to 90, in a wide range of settings, from gentle strolls and bug hunts, and to skiing moguls with teenagers that were definitely better than me. I love sharing my passion for the outdoors and hope that people can get some of the same joy and peace from it that I do.

    Place to Play

    Local adventures around the Cairngorms with friends, and weekends away to the northwest – riding bikes to Lochinver Pie shop and sleeping on the beach at Sandwood Bay.

    I won a wrestling competition when I was 15 and spent all my winnings on the dodgems.

    Make Trip Private

    Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

    We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
