I was brought up on a council estate within a large town but always longed for outdoors amongst the hills and woodlands. Little did I know where my journey would take me, from that first day as a YTS Gamekeeper at the tender age of 15 working on a commercial pheasant and partridge shoot to now as Head Gamekeeper Stalker on a Highland estate. My chosen career has given me so many experiences and allowed me to enrich the experience of the outdoors to others.
