Remember that moment that utterly captivated you, when you felt completely connected with the world and immersed in what you were experiencing? Maybe you felt the echo of the past in the storyteller's tales by the smoky peat fire, or watched a shooting star fall across the frozen jewel-studded sky. Maybe it was the rough stone of a summit cairn you rested against as you admired the surrounding mountains. Whatever it was, that moment was special and you will never be the same again. That is why I design custom trips, unique for every traveller so that you can find your own moments in this beautiful land which I am so proud to share.

How did you get involved in travel?

"Never found without a backpack, I was a child always ready for an adventure and this is still true today. I have travelled to various wonderous locations around the world, but the lure of the unique Scottish Highlands has always brought me home to these welcoming shores. Now I love to share these landscapes and all their stories with others, showing everyone just how special they are."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"It had not been an auspicious start to the day, freezing fog outside the windows and a chirping alarm clock going off far too early. However here I was, hiking books on and packed bag on my back stepping out into the chill. We set off on time and our easy pace and happy chatter warmed me as we hiked up the hill path. Nothing could have prepared me for suddenly bursting out of the cold clouds into a sun-drenched world of blue skies. We stared open-mouthed in wonder at the islands of surrounding mountain tops in a sea of fluffy clouds. Then the guide produced a celebratory treat with a flourish and we all laughed as we pulled silly poses for a unique summit photo. That wonderstruck moment will stay with me forever, this world is a very special place."
