The mountains and the outdoors have fascinated me since I was young when camping trips in the Scottish Highlands were an annual event and exploring the local area introduced me to the magic of the outdoors. My interest in the mountains and nature lead me to study Physical Geography & Geology before deciding to work in the outdoors as a Mountain Leader and hill walking guide. I'm a fully qualified International Mountain Leader and Winter Mountain Leader, which means I can operate all year round in the Scottish mountains and lead treks overseas.
