Tim is a Wild Scotland member and the owner of Wild Tree Adventures.
Regional representation across the Board has been identified as a priority. We are still lacking representation across some regions and are delighted now to have Tim who represents the South of Scotland.
Tim is an excellent networker across Scotland and is a finalist for the Scottish Thistle Awards.
Prior to launching Wild Tree Adventures, Tim worked in the outdoor adventure sector for 4 years and also delivered creative projects in schools to children and teachers across the UK. He has exhibited internationally and gained a distinction in Fine Art Sculpture.
Tim is further qualified as a zoologist and has worked as a field research assistant and night watchman to the sole UK nesting pair of bee-eaters, counted parrots in the forest islands of NE Bolivia and scaled tall conifers to monitor Scottish goshawks. Currently, he is involved in a long-term project on rare raptor species. Tim's experience in monitoring rare and specially protected wildlife gives him an insight into the pressures facing high-impact tourist locations, complex issues of land management, tourism and the adventure tourism sector.
Scotland for Tim offers the opportunity for amazing adventure where inspiring landscapes, unique wildlife and the wonderful people who live, work and visit these places and who call this place home at some point in their life, all create a fabulous fusion of heritage, culture and diverse experience.
As a new and upcoming company operator in Scotland’s adventure tourism sector, he sees adventure and adventure tourism as a way to both inspire and enrich the lives of customers and employees alike. Employing local people and collaborating to boost the local economy, industry’s role in ‘reconnecting people with nature’ is vital across all generations and incomes as we head towards ever more sustainable tourism.
