Doug has a lifetime of experience as a paddlesport coach in sea kayaking and white water, working for many years at Glenmore Lodge, Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre. Through this he has enjoyed many years of taking people to remote and spectacular coastlines and rivers, then helping them improve their paddling skills and understanding. The majority of his workdays on the sea have been in Scotland, which provides a great office and an even better playground on days off. When not out on the water, he has also enjoyed many years working as a Mountain and Ski Instructor, or at play in search of new crags or fresh powder tracks.As much as Doug loves introducing people to new environments and challenging their skills, it is his days off, personal adventures and expeditions that he lives for. He has sea kayaked extensively worldwide, including Greenland, Alaska, Iceland, Norway, Ireland, Corsica, Croatia, Sardinia and Greece, and has always got a new destination and adventure planned.Doug is also author of Skye and North West Highlands Sea Kayaking, North and East Coasts of Scotland Sea Kayaking, Sea Kayak Handling and Rough Water Handling; all published by Pesda Press. With his wife Lara he has also created a website, Scottish Sea Kayaking, to provide ‘inspiration & information’ to all sea kayakers and compliment the guide books (www.scottishseakayaking.co.uk).So, if it involves discovering new remote parts of the world, having an adventure or helping friends and clients; Doug will have a smile on his face and most definitely be having fun.
