Writing

Whether writing about a descent of the River Spey by canoe, tourism pressure in national parks, the plight of bee populations, rewilding the landscape, or profiling the latest band, artist or theatre production to tour Scotland, I tell stories in a rich, engaging and accessible way.

Features, news, reviews

I’ve been lucky to work on a wide range of articles – from in-depth features to shorter news and reviews – for a variety of publications, including Scotland Outdoors, BBC Wildlife MagazineScottish Wildlife, CNN Traveller, Scotland in Trust and OE Magazine, plus a whole host of press pieces (from local to national). 

Although I can turn my hand to most topics, I specialise in adventure travel, outdoor activities, wildlife and ecology. I pay close attention to briefs and deliver engaging copy on time, every time. Read what various happy campers have to say.

blogging and copywriting

I’m delighted to provide copywriting services to small businesses and digital agencies, as well as regular ghost blogs and additional marketing services for the likes of The Tontine Hotel in Peebles. It’s a chance to write in different styles and help clients create personality and warmth around their respective products.

Press and Promo

Much of my press work involves promoting the local area, from the rich and varied programme on offer at the Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre to the year-round events and festivals that take place here in the always buzzing Tweed Valley.
