My first proper job after studying marine biology at university took me from the south of England to the Scottish Highlands. A quarter of a century later, I’m still here. My outdoor passions are playing in Scotland’s hills, whether hill-walking or running, back-country skiing, scrambling, wild camping, or climbing (especially the classic mountain lines of the early hobnail-booted pioneers). Those years of adventure and enjoyment have led me to a qualification that I can now use to escape the desk and computer screen (where I’m still to be found a lot of the time) in order to share with others the magic powers of Scotland’s outdoors to amaze, renew and refresh.
Places to Play
I’m lucky to live close to the hills, and there’s fun and adventure to be had right on my doorstep – Kintail.
Not a lot of people know this
I once spent a night on a temporary bamboo fishing platform several miles off the coast of Java.
