Our landscapes and seascapes are extraordinary, and diverse.

Huge skies and hulking great rocks. Ever-splashing burns and mirror-calm lochs.

Wild open heath and mossy intimate woodland.

Open sea and a patchwork of islands. Light on the rock and water changes through the day and with the seasons.

All these inspire a sense of space and freedom and a desire to explore, fill the lungs with fresh cool air, have wild adventures – or just sit and gaze in awe.

Growing up in western Nepal Tim enjoyed a free range childhood climbing trees, running free and dodging snakes. Over the years he learnt to appreciate how gaining a little confidence in the outdoors can be life changing for so many people and followed this passion into a career in outdoor leadership.

Not one to rest easy, Tim is a qualified mountain and advanced sea kayak leader as well as teaching rock climbing, white water kayaking and hill walking skills. Whether it be canoeing the lochs of Scotland or casting off waterfalls in Vietnam, Tim is comfortable in most situations that the outdoor environment throws at him. Tim is an inspiring leader who is great at building confidence, but he’s also a big kid and popular with them too.

My true passion is expeditions, both at home in Scotland and overseas. Starting aged 18, with a 10 month journey alone through New Zealand, and it’s Great Walks I feel in love with remote wilderness travel. As a student, with a great friend, we crossed Iceland from south to north on foot, a 600km journey as part of a three month, extremely budget adventure.

Upon graduating university, I set off on my biggest adventure so far. Travelling mostly solo, I circumnavigated Scotland by sea kayak and cycled home through the country whilst climbing all 282 Munro mountains, mostly in winter. This 364 day adventure cemented my knowledge of Scotland from the coasts to the mountains and for this I was awarded both the Scottish and Uk adventurer of the year in 2015.  Without doubt, this expedition led me to where I am now.

In 2016-17 I continued my exploration of Scotland with a continual winter round of the Corbett Mountains, 222 peaks between 2500-3000ft. A seven month adventure, this time base camping from a van rather than a bike and tent.
