Craig McDonald

Why does wilderness guide Craig McDonald love leading hikes across Scotland? Let him count the ways: “the thrill of a harsh winter day, the beauty of a crystal-clear summer sky, the diverse challenges our mountain landscapes provide, and the camaraderie shared with other likeminded folk.” A Scotsman by birthright and passion, he describes his vision of heaven as a “cracking long day on foot or on bike” exploring the mountains and glens of his ancestral homeland, followed by a hearty dinner and “wee dram” around a fire with friends new or old.
