    Free-spirited | Inquisitive | Spontaneous

    Mini bio

    During a particularly nomadic period of my life many years ago a Masai read my fortune and told me I’d end up living in Scotland. I didn’t believe him at the time, but it appears that he was right! To be honest, it’s a pretty special place to be, and I’m always learning new things about her, from her wild moods to natural history, flora, and fauna. I love sharing these with others.

    I love any journeys that are human-powered, and journey through nature, the more remote the better.

    Place to play

    New places always intrigue me, and I have a natural urge to see around the next corner. But I have a great love for Islands whether swimming to them, cycling around them sea kayaking or sailing between them. I particularly love places where mountains meet the sea, like the NW, and I love the Argyll coastline.

    Not a lot of people know this

    I once had to stand in a pyranha-infested river to dig out sand with a plastic dinner plate so our dugout boat could continue down the shallow river to an estancia frequented by jaguars!

    I loved our guide! She truly has a love for the outdoors and the area. My only concern was that she was new and therefore not familiar with this tour.

    Thanks for your feedback. We do always aim to assign guides to trips who are closely familiar with the it, but Leonie had to step up at the last minute to guide this trip due to the previously assigned guide being ill. This is a tall order for any guide, so in the circumstances I hope you would agree she did a fantastic job as you and the others on the trip have said you got on so well with her and enjoyed her infectious enthusiasm for Scotland's outdoors.
