Jonny Hawkins

Jonny Hawkins Me in 3 – Adventurous | spontaneous | content

Place to Play – Any secluded West Coast island that has a bothy, beach and brilliant sunset.

Not a lot of people know this – I used to play the drums in a jazz band that toured round Europe.

Mini Bio: Coming from the ‘sunny south’, when I arrived into Scotland for University, I was blow away. The remoteness, adventure potential and friendly people meant it couldn’t leave.

My drive in life is to seek out amazing new places to have adventurers with friends. Scotland has these places in abundance and stumbling across them by boat is the best.

Adventure has taken me to every corner of the globe; whitewater kayaking in the Bornean jungle, sea kayaking around Hong Kong and trekking in the Himalayas. However, my circumnavigation of Scotland by sea kayak has a special place in my heart.

It is a privilege to be on the Wilderness Scotland guide team, enabling me to share some of these amazing places with you.
