This week we were dreaming of long hikes, forest bathing and days spent outdoors reconnecting with nature, so we decided to contact an expert in the field.

The attention I give them and how I bring the connection between them and Nature, walking.
What do you like most about taking people on tours of Breadalbane?
How they have the opportunity to become giants.
What’s your favourite destination for a one-day tour and why?
Meall Dhuin Croisg, meaning “mountain of the crossing hillock” is both my favourite mountain and walking destination, because there is so much to experience. It’s not always about what we see that is essential, it’s about the spaces we can walk into…becoming a world in itself, rediscovered. Opening the imagination.
Do you have any tips to help outdoor enthusiasts cope with lockdown/social distancing?
Dream, and keep dreaming. Our dreams awake are essential to our being in the world and becoming. No one can survive without the imagination, it is central to our daily focus and spiritual evolution. Humanity therefore with a destiny. Every dream we have awake is the opportunity to open a world within ourselves and with the world. It will change and the improve the quality of your life.
Make it a reality.
