Stevie Christie has been exploring the Highlands and Islands of Scotland since he was a young laddie! Adventurous trips to Africa and various parts of the Americas then followed, leaving him with an impressive trekking CV which was completely mis-matched to his job as a government policy advisor.
Quitting his job in 2002, Stevie joined the leading adventure travel company Wilderness Scotland (which has since grown to include Wilderness Journeys) as a guide, and is now a director of the company, which specialises in sustainable adventure travel experiences.
Although this involves a little more desk time than he would ideally like, it also involves more trekking trips to Scotland and around the world than anyone else he knows, making it a pretty special job to have!
As a side interest, Stevie also runs the Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival, which takes place over a long weekend in October each year, bringing together the best adventure films from across the world along with lectures from some of the biggest names in mountaineering and exploration from around the world.
