I self-built a cabin in my garden for working from home, with some much needed help from my two boys. The build was tough going but so rewarding, I appreciate the separate workspace so much now. I call it my 'cabin' because the word suggests year-long habitation, comfort and security, all of which are important for me, particularly just now.

Taking advantage of a relaxation in lockdown rules at the start of July, my two sons and I set off to walk the West Highland Way from Milngavie to Fort William. We carried all our kit and managed to complete the walk in just over 5 days. So proud of my boys.

A very funny trip to Gdansk with my friend Derek. Good food, good digs, good vodka.

Another amazing holiday staying at Bowmore on Islay. It's got it all - good food, whiskey, swimming pool and the best beaches.

We used the May long weekend for a trip to Tiree. Changeable weather, great waves and broken down ferries sums up the weekend.

A winter walk up a new munro for me at the top of Glen Fyne. Amazing walk but too much snow above 2500 feet for me (without ice axe!) so will come back and finish it another day.

A bracing walk up Ben Lomond on the 2nd January. Very cold!

The adventures of Hamish, our Border Terrier. Terriers retain the full prey drive instinct, except for consume. Treat with caution!

One of the things I never thought I would see - the Rolling Stones playing live.

We went back to Islay for a few days, staying in Bowmore this time. Great food, the best whisky in the world and fantastic beaches.

Photos from my 80 mile round trip bike ride around Ben Lomond. The photos are distinctly lo-res compared to previous albums due to switching to a new light-weight 2MP camera.

We thought about going somewhere else but it's hard to beat Gairloch so back we went. 29 degrees as well...

A last minute decision to take my digitial SLR with me on the trip which was extra weight I really didn't need. But I'm glad I took it and have these photos to remember this incredible adventure.

Was hoping to be skiing, but snow was rapidly disappearing. Sledging was just a fun actually.

Photos from my most recent trip to India. This was the third time I had been and really want to go back. Love the people, the culture, the food and the energy in Mumbai is incredible. Most of the photos are taken from my hotel overlooking Powai Lake. The lake is inhabitted by crocodiles and water buffalo.

Some of my best photos and memories from the year I spent in Manhattan, Kansas as an international exchange student to KSU. Without overstating it, probably this year had most influence on the future course of my life.

Whilst studying at Kansas State University in 1993/94, my friend Mark flew over from Scotland to visit. We embarked on a crazy long road trip over the Christmas holidays on the Greyhound buses that took us from Kansas to Vegas, LA, San Fransisco, Utah, Chicago and back to Kansas. All in less than two weeks. All very Jack Kerouac...
