"I am delighted to be joining the good folk behind Scottish Adventure. I was sold instantly when Roy first told me of the concept. Since then it’s gone onto become a tremendous platform to showcase the importance, in so many ways, of all kinds of adventure across our wonderful country.
The growth, in such a short space of time of Scottish Adventure has been remarkable. Taking nothing away from everyone’s efforts to date, I don’t think we’ve scratched the surface of the potential that’s out there and I'm looking forward to being part of the success story."
Caroline Hood, Diversity & Inclusion Advisor
The Diversity & Inclusion Advisor will help ensure that everyone can access adventure regardless of personal, physical or social characteristics and will support Scottish Adventure Community members with advice and expertise.
"Since a young age I’ve understood the importance of spending time outdoors and the connection we have with our natural environment. Hillwalking was a big staple of family life and my first experiences of adventure.
Now, adventure means cycling and it plays an important role in my life. Living in Aberdeenshire, I find the peace that comes from pedalling and looking at the world from two wheels provides me with balance. The pandemic hit the pause button on a lot of my plans, but I can’t wait to start planning new adventures and I think the best adventures are probably still to come.
I jumped at the offer to join SAC as a Diversity and Inclusion Advisor and the opportunity this presents to me and the organisation. I look forward to promoting our adventure community and looking for opportunities to ensure it is as inclusive and representative as possible"
Will Simpson, Wellness & Wellbeing Advisor
The Wellness & Wellbeing Advisor is responsible for developing and promoting physical wellness and mental wellbeing best practices and supporting members of the Scottish Adventure Community if they need it.
"The opportunity to join Scottish Adventure as Wellness and Well-being Advisor is very exciting to me. I love nothing more than a deep and meaningful conversation about these topics, its my passion. I've had my challenges in life.
That's where we find strength and ways to manage. Not always the ways we find to manage short term are the best long term solutions. I hope to bring peace and education to your lives and your adventures"
Rosie Payne, Digital Content Creator
The Digital Content Creator is responsible for producing graphic design elements, photography and filmmaking to help tell the story of the Scottish Adventure journey.
