    Mini Bio

    I moved to North Wales to study and became an avid rock climber and mountain walker. Nowadays I tend to opt for running, hiking, bike touring, and swimming in whatever water I can find. Having climbed, walked and bike toured in many countries Scotland has to be the highlighted top of many of these adventures, from running in the Rum Cuillins, cycling the Applecross peninsula, climbing the in-accessible pinnacle on the Skye Cuillins and finding a remote loch for a dip.

    Aside from adventures I love pottering in my garden in North Wales with a lovely view of northern Snowdonia.

    I have a particular interest in plants which has led me to work as a botanist surveying remote parts of the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

    I also work as a gardener when at home in Wales.

    Make Trip Private

    Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

    We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
