About Me

I was born just north of Glasgow but gravitated north realised my dream of living and working in the Highlands. His career started as a wildlife guide near Inverness way back in 1995, since then I have worked my way up to attaining a national guiding qualification, the STGA Blue Badge. Being a guide I like to chat and can talk knowledgeably and entertainingly about most things Scottish and weave many different and fascinating strands into my commentaries. I greatly enjoy hill walking, sea kayaking and looking for and at Dragonflies in the summer sunshine.
