Doug works at Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre, Glenmore Lodge, where he is Head of Paddlesports. He works as a Level 5 Coach in Sea and White Water and has the fantastic job of taking people to remote and spectacular coastlines and rivers, then helping them improve their paddling skills and understanding. Many of these days are spent on the sea on the North or East Coast of Scotland, which is a great office on work days and an even better playground on days off.
Doug also enjoys pushing his envelope or just having fun on personal adventures and expeditions. He has sea kayaked extensively around the world including Greenland, Alaska, Iceland, Norway, Ireland, Corsica, Croatia, Sardinia and Greece, and always has a new destination and adventure planned.
When not out on the water Doug can be found in the mountains at work as a Mountain and Ski Instructor or at play in search of new crags or fresh powder tracks. He was also co-author of Scottish Sea Kayaking and author of Sea Kayak Handling and Rough Water Handling; all published by Pesda Press.
So if it involves discovering new remote parts of the world, having an adventure or helping friends and clients; then Doug will have a smile on his face and definitely be having fun.
