Colin's love of the outdoors begun when he discovered climbing at the age of 18, since then he has diversified into mountaineering, kayaking, canoeing, sea kayaking, mountain biking and caving. Colin has worked as an instructor and coach across the UK and as an expedition leader overseas. He also has a deep passion for the outdoor environment just enjoying the experience of travelling in the mountains or along a stunning coastline. Some of his highlights include expeditions in Africa, canoeing across Scotland and trying to remember how to ride a horse in the hills of Egypt!
