About Me

Hi there, I currently live in a cool neighborhood of Scotland's largest city, but I am really a lover of the outdoors.

I have a few expectations. I can host outdoor activities people and people with an interesting viewpoint or personal project.

I have to be honest and say that I have less interest in hosting folk who are doing mainstream tourism and just want a free place to stay. I am sorry, I just don't find talking about the Loch Ness monster all that interesting. There is a well developed tourist infrastructure in this country.

Alas, I also have a little problem with self-contained introverts. I wish you well.

I am a well travelled person who works and is passionate about the things I do.

As well as getting out on the Scottish hills,
I do some modest social and environmental activism in a low key way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Kind strangers have put me up in different parts of the world and they were great experiences - we have forgotten what "hospitality" is in the rich world. These experiences were not with Couchsurfing - I was just stuck in remote place and folk put me up.

My sons have left home and it would be nice to think I might stay current by meeting travelling people.


I am interested in almost any aspect of living on this planet.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music of different sorts is important to me, although I do not seriously play any instruments. Most recently I have been banging a bass surdo drum in a samba band.

I can talk about books and films. Also sport.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have drunk some coffee when really thirsty and lost on a mountain. It was an amazing coffee.

Teach, Learn, Share

Would love to improve my Spanish.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Happy to show people around, feed them, take them for a fish or hike in the mountains if they have gear for Scottish mountains, hang out in the city.

Countries I’ve Lived In

England, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Scotland
