  1. Between 27th May and 2nd June 2017 I walked part of the new Hebridean Way from Barra to Lochmaddy in North Uist. It was a solo charity walk to raise money for the National Autistic Society Scotland.  Many sections of my books including my recently published book of Scottish short stories, Free as the Wind, as well as some of my songs were inspired by my travels over the years around the islands and mainland of Scotland and it was a delight to return to the Hebrides. Please see a short video here of my walk (and make sure your volume is up)


  1. In May 2018 I visited some islands I had never seen previously and was able to gain some more ideas for future stories. I made a short video of my journey that contains my song “Island Lullaby” as background – see below
