Husband to Louise and father of Robbie (21) and Jack (18), I enjoy my work in animal health helping to protect livestock and public health. We enjoy good food and company; we love the outdoors anywhere we go - hillwalking, dog walking, cycling, skiing/boarding, beaches and forests. We often holiday here in Scotland and in Southern France staying in a tent, cottages, apartments and not often in hotels. Louise likes to read novels and listening to radio and I like non-fiction books, maps and guidebooks! We both enjoy a wide variety of music - from Abba to Zappa (almost) via Blazing fiddles and Mozart. As guests we are neat and tidy, always cleaning properties before we leave, and never leaving litter in the wild - Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints.
