I grew up in Glasgow but always had a feeling there was not enough mud to jump into in the city. I moved to the Highlands six years ago to study an adventure tourism degree and completely fell in love with life here in the mountains.
I now spend my summers working and playing in Scotland. I have discovered that sharing the locations that I have found over the years with other people is as fun as the initial exploring. I like to leave my winters as free as possible to explore our vast and varied planet.
Place to play
I love the whole of the northwest coast but the Isle of Rum holds a special place in my heart. Wild and remote, without a trace of concrete, it is easy to forget that civilisation exists when you are exploring the mountains and coastline of this stunning Highland paradise.
I plan to one day follow in the footsteps of my great-great grandad Heinrich Oehlers, who was a tiger tamer in the Singapore state circus and use my juggling skills to run away and join a circus.
