Caring | Enthusiastic | Inquisitive

Mini Bio

I am now living the dream in my third career having worked in marketing, then as a teacher and now as an outdoor instructor, walking guide and leadership development facilitator. I am happiest when outdoors and preferably up a mountain, either on skis or on foot.

My love for Scotland developed when we lived in Edinburgh and then Perth. It’s such an amazing place to explore during any season of the year. I am now based in Southern England, but my car knows the route North very well!

Places to play

Assynt – North West Scotland!

My love of our landscape and mountains is best expressed by the pen of Norman MacCaig who enquired:
“Who possesses this landscape?
The man who bought it or
I who am possessed by it?”

Not a lot of people know this

I am fiercely competitive and have skied and windsurfed at a national level.

Having an inquisitive mind, I love to have an understanding of everything around me. Flora and fauna and their surrounding landscapes fascinate me and I probably spend far too much time taking photos and Googling answers to questions!
