Because I never lose a golf ball. Allegedly.

Throughout my life I have been active enjoying football, skiing and golf. I have never really experienced walking until a few years ago. My first Munro was Broad Cairn and I followed it up a year later with another at Ben Nevis. Many holidays since have been spent on the west coast of Scotland enjoying the scenic walks.

Now retired, I play golf 4 times each week, which clearly entails a lot of walking. I keep myself fit with regular trips to the gym where I do “spin” classes.

I always thought about doing the West Highland Way in part, but never the full length. Now I am keen to walk the complete length with friends and savour the hospitality along the way. As I naturally attract the midges it should make the walk more enjoyable for the others. 😀

I got to know Stuart through the Boys from Broughty Ferry who migrated to London in the 70’s. We subsequently met many times over the years.
