      Mini bio

      I love going on journeys exploring the wild places of Scotland; spending time looking at the wildlife, and sharing the experience with others.

      Although my first passion is mountains, I am also passionate about paddling the amazing waterways of Scotland. I have lived in Scotland since 2005, and still, feel like I am on my holiday!

      I absolutely love Scotland, its people and landscapes.

      I have qualifications to lead and coach canoeing, also to lead in the mountains on foot, and by mountain bike.

      I am a Ski Patroller and hold a Wilderness E.M.T.

      Places to Play 

      The Cairngorms- especially if there is a covering of snow for a ski tour.

      Not a lot of people know this 

      In my previous career in the Fire Service, I was a member of a World Champion Tug O War team, winning Gold at the First World Fire Fighter Games 1990 in Aukland New Zealand.  I successfully defended the title in Las Vegas in 1992!!
