I am a seasoned traveller with a continuing hunger to explore parts of the world I do not already know. I have travelled extensively in America and Europe and worked along the way as a documentary television producer. My work also took me to Iran, Japan, Australia, North and West Africa. I love discovering the artistic cultures, cuisine and fashions of any country I visit. I have been to Thailand three times in the last year as I fell in love with the Thai people - and the food! I am also a nature lover and unspoiled landscapes inspire me - I often say that the Scottish landscape is my church. I am proud to be Scottish and even after all my travels, I feel it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I relocated to Scotland after twenty years based in London and much as I enjoy urban landscapes also, I am ecstatically happy to be able to live in a peaceful village in the Trossachs after the hurly burly and stress of working life in London. I was lucky enough to celebrate Bastille Day in Paris recently with friends and had a fantastic experience of La Ville Lumiere, but getting back home is always good despite my wanderlust. I think the next country I want to visit as a tourist is Mali, (I got to know nearby Senegal well through my work), as its music fascinates and moves me.

    "I visited the Chiva Som spa last year and found that it more than lived up to its reputation as one of the finest spas in the world. The quality of service throughout is superb, from the gym trainers, to the physical therapists (ie massage)/beauty thera…"
