About Me

I am a retired glaciologist from the British Antarctic Survey. For 25 years I also taught adults for the University of Cambridge about Antarctica, climate change and environmental issues. I love Scotland's wild places.

I enjoy exploring the coastline of Scottish islands.

We stay in the Black Isle where walking is a pleasure in a rural environment just six miles from Inverness. We have a five-acre smallholding with woodland overlooking Munlochy Bay. We have immersed ourselves in Scottish Country Dancing and Transition Black Isle while learning the skills of crofters. I help to organise the Black Isle Tourism Team and maintain the Facebook page Black Isle Nature. LinkExternal link

Since moving to Scotland I have taken up the challenge of visiting Green Squares to gain Geograph Firsts. Shetland and the interior of Scotland's wilderness are prime targets and in the last three years I have visited 70 of them. Some are absolute gems and should have been snapped up years ago, while others require good stamina and luck with weather. In May 2018 I aciheved my 200th First Geograph.
Geograph Firsts from the last three years.
