As a child, I skied in Glenshee and loved being outside. At 19 I started hill-walking and have happily worn out many pairs of boots since. I especially enjoy hill-walking, long distance trails (the Camino de Santiago across Spain and the West Highland Way several times) and wild camping. Late evening sunsets from high up on a mountain have to be among life’s greatest pleasures. Thankfully, in Scotland, we’re spoilt for choice.
Place to play
Highland Perthshire has lots to offer close to home, but further afield the Isle of Skye has it all; drama, amazing landscapes, fantastic shoreline and caves to explore.
Not a lot of people know this
I’m passionate about badgers, so I’m on special alert when walking in woodland.
