I have been hiking, cycling, riding and camping on both sides of the Scottish / English border for about 20 years. I enjoy being self supporting, improving my hill skills, setting myself challenges and planning new projects.ย I try to keep the information in this section up to date and I welcome constructive criticism, but please consider that maybe some of the posts aren’t aimed at you.

I am a developing outdoor person with strengths and weaknesses like everyone else, but I do take my responsibilities to provide good advice seriously by reading, researching my posts, completing appropriate courses, attending meetings and talks and listening to others.

I began recording simple slideshows of my walks in 2012 out of a desire to share their beauty with others. I’m now improving the quality with a better camera and editing software, in situ sound and commentaries. Above is a link to my outdoor YouTube channel which will hopefully enhance the posts on this site.
