Place to Play – West coast of Scotland. I live on the Isle of Arran, simply no place like it in Scotland. Mountains and Sea and road that goes all the way round.
Not a lot of people know this – My grandfather designed those meat carving forks with the hinged cut guard on the back preventing a sliced hand when cutting towards yourself!
Mini Bio – Most people call me Wally. I have worked as an outdoor leader since I was 18. A UK mountain leader and single pitch climbing award holder. I climb in summer/winter all over Europe and the UK.
I have been riding the road on a bike as long as I can remember, I resprayed and rebuilt my first full size bike which I was given as a hand me down from my brother. A 1966 Carlton criterium the frame of which I still ride this today. I am a Cytech bike mechanic and British cycling mountain bike leader.
My Kayaking began on Welsh rivers and surfing waves on the Gower and Pembroke coast and has now become a bit more sedate since buying a sea boat.
