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

One of the best trips we've ever done. For me, perhaps the most inspirational moment was the shared sense of awe as we paddled across Loch Sionascaig with the amphitheatre of mountains around us on a brilliant day. Thank you Kirk, Laura and all the team.
