The world is a fascinating place, even in its mundanity, and I hope that I manage to convey this in my website.
I describe myself as a sort of travel writer – it’s not my full-time occupation but with one book published and two forthcoming it is nevertheless a strong and active pursuit.
By way of quick biography, I was born in Dingwall in 1978, grew up on the isle of Benbecula in the Western Isles, and studied at Aberdeen University. I am married (to Nicole) and live in Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands, where this is my day job.
Besides writing and photography I also love travel and the outdoors, and while I’ve visited over thirty countries I never cease to be amazed at what my own backyard in Scotland has to offer. I’m a Christian, supporter of Scottish independence, Esperanto learner, and more. You’ll probably find that this site and my various social media spoutings reflect all these different things. Do feel free to drop a line.
