Originally a Yorkshire farming lad from the Dales who went to study geology at the University of Liverpool; I have since worked for a variety of major outdoor retailers and wholesalers before settling down in Scotland as an outdoor instructor, educator, and guide, leading groups across the UK and overseas. I spend as much of my time as possible exploring the great outdoors and the beautiful wild areas found across the country, whether that be on foot, bike or on the water.
Places to play
You can spend time all over the World, but you’ll come back to Scotland. For me some of the best places are bikepacking and island hopping around the West coast, or walking in to some of the more remote Munros in the Cairngorms.
Not a lot of People know this
If not out exploring the mountains, I am a bit of a secret Trekkie and could be found watching a good, or not so good, sci-fi. Or maybe even in the bowling alley where I have full university colours and a PB of over 250!
