My name’s Fraser and I’m a tree-hugging, nature-loving outdoorsy guy.
Growing up in the north of Scotland, I had the great outdoors on my doorstep. As a family, we took advantage of it with trips from Loch an Eilien in the Cairngorms to Neist Point on the Isle of Skye.
I was also part of youth groups that encouraged outdoor recreation, letting me experience backpacking, hiking, canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking, and everything else the great outdoors has to offer! Seeing as James has already offered a gawky, awkward photo of himself as a teenager, I guess I should follow suit.
I moved to Glasgow for university in 2013 (which is where I met James!) and this summer I graduated with my Master’s of Research in Criminology. Now that I’m a fully-fledged city slicker, I miss connecting with the outdoors as much. So when James offered me the chance to get involved with Wilderness Redefined I jumped at it!
I want to help make getting outdoors accessible to everyone, but I also know how important it is that we promote ethical, environmentally-friendly camping and outdoor pursuits.
