We’re pretty excited to be sending smoke signals ’round the globe, and are pumped to introduce our newest Scottish Campsite Correspondent, Laraine Wyn-Jones! We’re so happy to have you here Laraine, and look forward to Scottish adventures with you! (Hold the Haggis!)
Here’s a bit about Laraine:
“After spending 12 years sitting behind a desk, living a sedentary and quiet sort of existence, I won a competition that literally changed my life. It was to spend a week in Wales, UK climbing the Welsh 3000’s – the 14 peaks in the Snowdonia National Park that are over 3000 feet. Having never climbed more than a flight of stairs, I was petrified.
A week later I was physically broken but completely hooked.
Fast forward two years, I’d climbed the 3000’s a couple more times, climbed and hiked in Scotland and the French and Swiss Alps, and decided that weekends were no longer enough to get my fix of the outdoors. I handed in my notice at my sensible desk-based job and moved to the Inner Hebrides of Scotland with my husband to run a small adventure business.
These days my desk (on the occasions I’m at it) overlooks a harbour where dolphins play, I live in hiking boots and waterproofs (this is Scotland, after all) and I can’t remember the last time I wore make up or styled my hair. I’ve never been happier!
