The Scottish Way – Planned for Summer 2025

For my 60th year, I am planning to revisit the land of my childhood holidays – the glorious wild lands of Scotland, but this time venturing further … into the heartlands of the Picts.

This will be a month long trip around the coast of Scotland to the Neolithic Rings of Brodgar on Orkney in time for Midsummer, and back – by camper van, ferry, and on foot.

A Journey to the Heart – A Pilgrimage up the River Wye to Bardsea Island June 2015

For the month of June I will be walking up through Wales from Chepstow at the mouth of the River Wye to Bardsea Island off the NW coast of the Llyn Pennisula.

This is a three fold journey. First and foremost it is an initiation; my initiation in to the middle ages: in celebration of my 50th year. It is also by way of creating a physical new/old map of how we relate to the world, reconnecting our ancient native wisdom with the warrior’s journey we each need to make to birth the New Story of Our Times. It is too the missing third thread of my up and coming book ‘Tales of Two Times’ – the hero’s journey that weaves the past to the future.

My invitation is to walk with me, whether for an hour, a day or for much longer stretches, all of it if you feel so called. All I shall say about your participation is that it will be your own journey and what unfolds therein will be for you to explore. I shall be on my own quest but delighted to share the path with any that wish to walk it too.

Along the way I would like to meet fellow questers, hear and share stories of past present and future, and hopefully enjoy some hospitality too; a nice warm bed, good local food & drink, and good company.

As an author and performance storyteller I welcome invitations to perform and/or talk about my books as I walk. I like all kinds of venues: cosy back rooms in pubs and inns, house concerts big and small, outdoors around fires and in community spaces, quirky bookshops and village halls, in fact anywhere at all where a goodly gathering of folk might be inspired by an evening of tale telling.

  • Contact me to host me, walk with me, or to know more about my  up -and- coming book.
