John Smith | Skye Adventure

After realising he wasn’t a man for indoor pursuits, John left the world of architecture for the great outdoors 10 years ago and hasn’t looked back. He loves the sea and has led the charge with establishing coasteering on the island - discovering hidden venues, jumping off virgin sea stacks, and playing in stormy swells like an otter.

A passionate climber, he's happiest in the mountains regardless of the season, a highlight of his being a winter traverse of the Cuillin Ridge. He is particularly proud of having organised a concert in Coire Lagan in 2017.
