Place to Play
Being based in Aviemore, it has to be the Rothiemurchus and Glenmore area. Getting out on either my road bike or mountain bike for a blast around the roads and trails couldn’t be easier. I also love exploring the Islands and enjoying a dram or two along the way.
Not a lot of people know this
There are only two of us in the team who can be classed as real locals – born in Inverness, I am one of the two!
I joined Wilderness Scotland in October 2010 and am responsible for the development of our Biking Programs, incorporating both Road and Mountain Bikes. Working as part of the Ops Team, my focus is on ensuring our trips run smoothly and have all the right kit. A major part of my role is devising and reviewing trips, I love to get creative and try to find inspiring new destinations to ride in. If you’ve got some ideas, then I’m all ears.
Every now and again I am lucky enough to escape the office and guide a few trips every year. It is always a highlight of my year, being able to share my passion and enthusiasm for our great country.
Out of work if you will find me competing in off-road duathlons, road cycling sportives and trying not to fall off the bike at Ten Under the Ben! If I’m not on the bike then you will find me trudging up and down rugby pitches across Scotland, playing for Highland Rugby Club.
2015 is an exciting year for me as I got married at the end of June!
