If it's outdoors, I'm in.

I'm a writer with a passion for the outdoors,
history, and Scottish culture.

One day I rode my bike to the hills...

I was still a child and not allowed to climb them alone, but nobody else I knew was interested. I headed up the sunlit ridge of Beinn Chaorach, highest of the Glen Fruin hills. At the top, a vista unfurled, wave upon wave of hills, from Ben Lomond that I recognised to new, unknown ranges. I had to explore just a little further, see the prospects from those distant summits.

I was hooked.
