I am an outdoor enthusiast, appreciating anything that gets me out into the natural world and wild places. Walking is my favourite pastime: hills, mountains, coast and islands accompanied by Bryher the cocker spaniel, and Rick. I have completed all the Marilyns, Munros, Corbetts, Grahams, Donalds and Donald Tops, Firths, Wainwrights, Outlying Fells, Birketts, and Synges the Snowdon Simms, Nuttalls, Buxton and Lewis’s, and Bridges. I am currently working on completing the Munro Tops, and am also enjoying the High Hills and higher Simms in Scotland, plus Dodds, Sibs and Humps. I am a keen gardener, and also love observing wildlife, photography and vegetarian cooking. I also love spending time with family and friends.
