Mini Bio

Since I was a young child, I have always loved the outdoors being brought up in the countryside, after meeting my husband David my enthusiasm became even greater, he introduced me to mountains (we didn’t have any in the flatlands of Norfolk) and that was it, totally hooked. If it wasn’t for him, I would not be doing what I love now. All our spare time was out somewhere, dragging our children over moors and mountains regardless of the weather. Holidays abroad would always include walks for us especially once children had left home. I also kayak and cycle although walking is my main love. One thing led to another and my eldest suggested doing my ML and getting out of the office environment and into the outdoors permanently. So here I am ready to show others our wonderful countryside and hope to instil that sense of peace when outside, whether hills, beaches or country lanes.

Place to Play

Locally the Arrochar Alps just north of Glasgow, such a small area, such great walking. Ultimately, who doesn’t just love Skye and its diverse landscape or the Lakes?

Not a lot of people know this

I used to be a pretty good horsewoman.

I have spent many a happy hour covering Scotland, North and South Wales, most of the Lake District, The Pennines and 3 peaks of Yorkshire a few times. I am fortunate to have family in New Zealand, so have travelled lots around both North and South Island. I have walked in Crete, Madeira and Corsica.

Who doesn’t love flowers? Wild ones especially are a wonderful spectacle when in season, I don’t profess to be an expert, but I am a very keen wildflower lover.

Our holidays reviewed
in your own words

I selected this tour because it provided the opportunity to combine a holiday in Scotland with an opportunity to also explore the Yorkshire Dales and Lakes. It was a very well designed tour, providing a good variety of landscapes and walking challenges. Staying two or more nights in each area allowed us to adjust the walking itinerary to allow for the changing weather conditions. Our guide Dave, the accommodation, food and additional touring experiences all combined to provide a wonderful experience. Cant wait to come back!
