Rachael Gavan

Lover of mountains, tea and woolly hats

Mini Bio

I grew up in the countryside just outside of Edinburgh and have always loved being in the outdoors. Some of my best memories growing up involved heading to the hills with my family and a car packed full of bikes or skis, camping gear, walking boots and hundreds of books. After university, I spend a few years travelling the world but I always knew that the UK was where I was meant to be. Being part of the Wilderness Team allows me to spend my days talking about the outdoor and wild spaces of Britain & Ireland and dreaming up new adventures. I feel lucky every day that I can share our beautiful home with travellers from all over the world.

Places to play

The Northumbrian coast has to be mentioned, it has it all – beautiful beaches, dark night skies, cosy village pubs and lots of castles. However, I also ADORE Hilltop and Dove Cottage in the Lakes along with the Herdy sheep.
