Occasional Mountain Leader and Trail Running Guide
Endurance and adventure have always fascinated me. Both have been a major part of my life for well, most of it.
A railway signalling engineer to trade but qualified Mountain Leader, spare times are based in the Scottish Mountains – a habit that has led to a full round Munro & Corbett summits, a passion for fell/hill running, scrambling and the occasional graded technical route. Given a winter, I can be seen on alpine or cross country skis and on a good day, sometimes skinning up a hillside on old touring kit.
Firmly in the “never won anything and never will” category, I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in ultra and mountain races around this wee planet including; Marathon des Sables (Morocco), Ultramarthon Caballo Blanco (Mexico), Ultra-Trail Australia 100km (Australia), Transylvanian Bear 80km Race (Romania), Born to Run 50km Ultra (USA), Tromso Skyrace (Norway), Glencoe Skyline Race (Scotland).
Based in Glasgow or wherever the van is parked up for the night.
