Mini Bio

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 the 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 UK’s outdoors to amaze, renew, and refresh.

Favourite Place to Play

It has to be the Lake District.

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.
Also, did you know that there are more species of fish than mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians put together?

Make Trip Private

Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
