My life in decades post University? Decade 1, a career in youth justice; Decade 2, outdoor education, guiding and teaching on the hills, crags and seas of Scotland; Decade 3 working in outdoor access and recreation for the Cairngorms National Park Authority and completing an MSc in Sustainable Mountain Development. And Decade 4? From Antarctica to Iceland, guiding and kicking back with interesting people in the wild and wonderful places again. Now you just need to work out how old I am!
Places to Play
My backyard wherever that happens to be – mainly Strathspey and the Cairngorms. But if pushed I’d have to add the Western Isles, the North West and anywhere that hills, sea, beaches, music, whisky and driftwood fires combine to create that unique Scottish ‘under the stars’ experience.
Not a lot of people know this
I love old Sergio Leone westerns set to the music of Ennio Morricone.
