The Scottish Islands—amazing, diverse landscapes and communities situated on the very edge of Europe

Craig has spent a large part of the last 30 years exploring every part of Scotland by bike, foot, and ski—with a particular fascination for the Scottish Islands and the remote and wild locations of the North West. Sharing that passion and enthusiasm for ‘wee adventures’ in Scotland with others makes guiding a natural fit for him. In July 2019, Craig became the first person to cycle solo and unsupported to all 96 Scottish inhabited islands in one continuous trip. The mammoth trip encompassed 61 days, 2,631 miles of cycling, 86 ferries, and 14 additional boat trips! Starting at the Mull of Galloway, the southernmost point in Scotland, Craig also visited the westernmost, easternmost, and northernmost points of Scotland—and found time to include another 21 occasionally or uninhabited islands along the way, bringing his trip to 117 total islands. The highlight was climbing on to Out Stac, a remote skerry to the north of Unst, Shetland, and the most northerly point in the U.K.—closer to the Arctic Circle than it is to London.
