highland boy from Lochcarron, Wester Ross. Passionate but mediocre mountaineer
Best Climbing Experience
First traverse of the Cuilling Ridge in Winter - 26 hours of terror, laugh out loud humour, cool karma and battling fatigue. First solo of Crab Crawl 1991. First winter lead on Mitre Ridge. Climbing with Roddy Murray, always great crack.

Sailing, warm sunny diving and being a daddy which is amazingly rewarding. Started playing guitar 3 years ago which is totally addictive. Love having friends round the house for drinks/meals and sing songs. My wife, Tracey.
