Dan spent his childhood exploring greenspaces in the south of Edinburgh and further afield, particularly Colinton Dell and Craiglockhart Hill. He is a mountain kid at heart, he spent over a decade teaching snowsports in New Zealand, Australia, and Scotland – so has plenty of experience running groups of all ages outdoors. He has a degree in Sustainability and Anthropology – so is a specialist in the interaction between society and the natural environment. He currently lives on the slopes of Arthur’s Seat and cares for Craiglockhart Hill as part of his second job.
