I've always loved the outdoors and, in my youth, was an Outdoor Pursuits School instructor specialising in mountaineering and rock climbing. But for most of my working life I was a medical doctor during which I spent much time promoting fitness and outdoor activities to improve the health of my patients. Now that I am retired, I combine my love of the outdoors and my desire to keep people healthy by teaching Nordic walking; an ideal means by which to improve and maintain health and fitness while enjoying the fresh air and amazing beautiful Scottish countryside.
