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.

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.
