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.
