Place to play: The Western Isles
Not a lot of people know this: I love making soap
My love of being in the outdoors has been with me since I was a child growing up with my brothers and sisters in the Lake District. I qualified as an international mountain leader in 2007 and have guided in the Scottish highlands alps and Himalaya. During the winter months I am based in the Cairngorm mountains working as an forecaster for the Scottish Avalanche Information service.
