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.

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 has been responsible for a number of creative collaborative projects that span mountain culture, art , music, environmentalism and sport.
