Travel Writer

I am currently writing a book documenting my Scottish travels for Moon Travel Guides. I go in search of the best pubs, destinations to make your heart flutter and unusual stories from across this hallowed land. All while unearthing some of the most intriguing myths and legends inspired by the ethereal landscape.

Editor

For the past four years I have been the editor of BRITAIN, the London Guide, and the BRITAIN Guide. Aside from having a near-encyclopedic knowledge of British tourism (go on, test me), I can turn an OK article into jump-off-the-page copy in next to no time. And it will be thoroughly fact-checked and subbed too.

With 15 years’ experience writing and editing across a range of platforms, from local newspapers to consumer magazines, websites and apps, I can work even the most jargon-heavy content into something digestible. If you want to develop a voice for your brand or need ready-to-go SEO copy, then please, step this way.

Scotland is good for the soul

Last year was a tough one for me, for reasons that will become clear if you check in with me regularly.

At times I felt like the world was pressing down on me and I needed head space. Walking helped release some tension, in fact I found being outside generally lifted my spirits. There’s something about watching the waves lap the shore with unerring certainty or feeling the pinch of the wind on your face that reminds you that life goes on.

And life did go on, tentatively. But it was on a trip to the Western Highlands in Scotland late last year that my healing process really began.

It turns out that bracing walks in the shadows of mountains, stomach-churning drives along cliff edges (‘hairpin bend’ was my phrase of the holiday), and laughing and singing with new friends over a single malt (and piano) were the tonics I needed.

I can’t tell you how many times my friend and I (that’s me on the left) just turned to each other and said: “I’m really happy”. Scotland it seems, is my happy place.

So, having visited Scotland many times over the years, I am now embarking on regular travels north of the border and writing my very own travel guidebook to this most special of places. Stay tuned for regular blogs and some stunning photography – with a model like Scotland, I can’t go wrong.
