Passionate about the Highlands of Scotland.
Having lived in or around the Highlands most of my life I have an extensive knowledge of people, places and products built up over many years of networking whilst driving my Moto Guzzi motorcycles, walking long distance routes, ticking off Corbetts*, and sailing around the Highland coastlines and islands.
As a keen motorcyclist (Member of the Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists) and a previous Commodore of Cromarty Boat Club I can also offer guiding services in motorcycle tours or yacht cruising.
From mid 2020 I hope to be able to offer hill walking and eBike tour guiding in a form the Swedish call köttrymd as in "digital detox" and pursue developing "slow tourism" notions.
These tours would have strong geomorphology, flora, fauna, and archaeological content.
Continued professional development for the next 12 months includes:
- Mountain Leader (Summer): training in late April 2020 with subsequent assessment..
- Outside First Aid training successfuly completed in November 2019.
- Attending various Scottish Tourism & Archaeology conferences and lectures.
* Corbetts are the 222 hills in Scotland greater than 2500 feet high, and less than 3000.
