While teaching Physical Education and Outdoor Pursuits I lived and worked in various parts of Scotland including Edinburgh, the Outer Hebrides and Dumfries and Galloway.
Since leaving teaching, I have contributed travel articles, features and photos to websites and various publications in the U.K. and abroad.
Playing traditional fiddle music has also given me opportunities to travel extensively at home and to other countries including Italy, Oman and North America.
I have no great desire to rush round every corner of the world, preferring instead to take time, see the sights and meet the people.
My interests include skiing, Scottish history, walking (including in towns and cities), gardens, traditional music, food and wine and film locations.
Hopefully my writings will inspire your own adventures.
