      Mini Bio

      Back in 2001 armed with a fully rigid mountain bike and a vintage Karrimor rucsac, l guided the very first Wilderness Scotland to the Knoydart Peninsula. Since then I’ve been lucky to guide a wide range of trips across Scotland and the North of England, specialising in mountain biking and road cycling.

      I was born near London and moved to Scotland as a teenager.  The Cairngorms National Park is now home and each year the Operations Team let me loose from the office to guide a handful of trips. I like to think that each of these is delivered with the very same passion and enthusiasm as Wilderness’ first trip back in 2001.

      Place to Play

      Road Cycling or Mountain Biking in the Cairngorms National Park. It’s home, it’s beautiful and there’s something for everyone.

      Not a lot of people know this

      I had a former life as an international amateur golfer. I thought about turning professional but didn’t look good in tartan trousers and v-neck jumpers.

      Duncan's stories and attitude throughout the trip were great. Always had us smiling or laughing. Paul's stories were entertaining as well and his knowledge of the history and background of the places we visited were great. Both Paul and Duncan had wonderful enthusiasm which made each day special.

      Duncan and Paul were outstanding. They were always cheerful, encouraging, patient, helpful, and attentive to our safety. As someone who leads cyclists on day rides, I have a kindred appreciation for the challenges of looking after a group with diverse skill levels and attitudes. Bravo to both of them! Because I came to the ride without the fitness I planned or needed, I had my own personal battle over the first few days as I struggled in the rain and trailed far behind the group. I was at a particularly low point when Duncan took a selfie of the two of us, and I doubt he realized how much he raised my spirits with that (till now). I'd travel with you guys anywhere.

      Guides are wonderful. I thought that Duncan was shortchanged on the bike time with the group. I respect that Paul may be a more senior guide but preferred the Outer Hebrides model of alternating guides. The guides worked well together providing a balance on personalities.

      On most bike tours our guides generally spilt the riding 50/50. As this was a new tour with some fairly complex routes, Paul and Duncan decided to guide those rides based upon personal knowledge and experience.

      Duncan and Paul were exceptional guides. They were always thoroughly prepared, thought of every possible contingency and worked tirelessly and endlessly. The knowledge and professionalism of Paul together with the good humour and willingness to accommodate our every wish by Duncan made this trip such an enjoyable experience. Sincere thanks to both of them.
