I was driven to found Macs Adventure in 2003 by a passion for adventure and active travel. I firmly believe that the very best way to discover a country, its landscape, culture and people is under your own steam.
I’m Craig and I have been at Macs Adventure since April 2016. After graduating from university I undertook a ski season in 2012/13. This was meant to be a short-lived 5-month escapade….ever since I have jumped around ski resort to ski resort enjoying what my family have called a ‘gap life’.
Hailing from the Western Isles of Scotland, I'm lucky enough to have grown up surrounded by the beautiful beaches and dramatic landscapes our country has to offer. Like many people though, I chose to travel to far-flung destinations to explore other countries and cultures as soon as I graduated from University.
I grew up in Dumfries and Galloway (one of the most under-explored parts of Scotland in my opinion) and through my Dad, inherited a passion for cycling which meant that my childhood was spent exploring my home region and other parts of Scotland when holidaying at home.
I was very lucky to be born to adventure-loving parents in an area of Canada that offers unlimited opportunities for adventure right at your doorstep. I like to joke that I was raised in a canoe but it’s not that far from the truth.
Originally from a small coastal village in South Wales I grew up surrounded by dramatic landscapes and incredible natural splendour. This fuelled a lifelong passion in wildlife and the great outdoors and I have since travelled around the world in a quest to experience both in equal measure.
I have been passionate about travel since an early age, spending my childhood travelling to America, Canada, Asia and Europe, I went on to study Travel management at university which gave me great opportunities to work in America and led me to undertake a trip of a lifetime around the world!
Growing up I was lucky enough to travel to some amazing places including USA, Morocco and Australia, but also loved weekends away in Scotland in our trusty caravan and visiting the islands of arran, Mull and Tiree.
Having found an interest in travel at an early age I set off travelling after graduating with a degree in Marketing and Tourism in 2001. I ended up casually working as I travelled, each job allowing me to travel to the next destination.
I have spent the last nine years working in the Sail Training Industry, working my way up to Skipper. I managed youth work voyages on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland and worked with some amazing people over this time.
Being born and raised in Scotland, all of my family holidays were spent traveling around the country, spending long weekends and school holidays in places like the lake district or down on the beautiful coast of Cornwall.
My passion for travel and adventure came from the wonderful trips and holidays my parents took me on as a child. We visited various different places in Europe, America as well as regular trips around Scotland, to North Uist and Inverness to visit family.
I've worked in travel and tourism for over 9 years now and I have been with Macs Adventure since 2014. I love going on holiday and visiting interesting places so there really is no better way to spend my working day, helping our customers plan their adventures to fantastic locations all over the world.< ...
Growing up in the small village of Comrie in Perthshire, my love of adventure and the outdoors began with exploring the surrounding countryside and family holidays to the West coast which involved a lot of walking, fishing in hill lochs and picnics.
I arrived in Scotland after living in Italy, Portugal, and Galicia, where I come from. I like to learn about other cultures while being part of the community. I was lucky to be able to do so on several occasions while attending language courses in different parts of the world.
My love of travel started at a young age, stemming from my parents’ love of holidays, meaning I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time visiting destinations abroad, throughout the UK, and seeing much of my homeland, Scotland.
I was raised in Clermont-Ferrand which is in Auvergne, a stunning volcanic landscape (where the water Volvic comes from!). After I graduated in Tourism in 2012, I decided to move to Scotland for 6 months with the Leonardo da Vinci program.
Holidays have always been spent camping in Scotland or snorkelling and adventuring in beautiful sunny countries which encouraged me to study a degree in Outdoor Pursuits Management and graduating this year.
Having come from a travel industry background I have been involved in many aspects, cabin crew, hotel receptionist, travel agent, but to name a few, I have always been drawn to the wonderful world of travel.
Travelling has always been a huge passion of mine ever since I was a child. My parents used to take my siblings and I on holidays all over Europe from quite a young age, which is something that I am truly grateful for as it ignited the love for exploring new places and meeting new people that I have today.
Passionate about travel, I love nothing more than seeing new places and meeting new people. I have travelled extensively around Asia, Europe and Australia, and wherever possible like to do as much of this overland as possible as believe this is the best way to see a country.
My passion for travel and the outdoors grew while I was living abroad as part of my university language studies. I have lived in Germany, France and Switzerland and my favourite thing in the world is to discover new places and cultures and if I can combine this with adventures in the great outdoors then even b ...
I was brought up by parents who made the most of being outdoors, and who encouraged me to travel all over Scotland and Europe practically since I could walk for hiking, rock climbing, cycle touring, and skiing.
I grew up travelling a lot, being American/Swedish and growing up in Switzerland I was constantly travelling to see family members who are spread out all over the world this is where my love of travel began.
Growing up, I spent many Summers travelling both abroad and throughout the UK as my family and I love nothing more than seeing (and tasting) what other cultures have to offer and, perhaps even more so, soaking up local history.
I have had a passion for travel from a young age and had the joys of lots of family holidays when I was younger. Having a big brother who has done his fair bit of traveling and now lives in Vancouver, itchy feet must run in our family!
I have always loved spending time outdoors whether that is sitting in the sun (with a gin) or doing something adventurous. Growing up living just next to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park pretty much every weekend was spent going for walks with my family and of course having a lovely cake and coffee ...
Hailing from Lancashire, with my father an avid mountaineer, I was cajoled up many a hill in Snowdonia & the Lake District. I am now repeating history and dragging my daughter up hills or cycling around our local stomping ground of Loch Lomond & the Trossachs!
Originally from Australia, after finishing my degree in Theatre, I did the typical Aussie thing of travelling. Based in the UK, after just a few years I’d travelled to 25 countries, and my love for exploring was ignited.
I have always been passionate about travel and love learning about new countries and cultures. I absolutely love Scotland and spent a few years whilst studying working for a Scottish Highlands and Islands company where I was first introduced to the stunning Scottish islands with their picturesque beaches and a ...
I’ve always had an interest in the outdoors and being active in general. Some of my earliest memories are summer holidays spent across Scotland: in the Highlands visiting close friends and family, or the islands such as Mull, Islay, Arran and the East Coast/Borders region.
As soon as I graduated I knew I had to either take a gap year and travel or hopefully find a job where I can travel and share my passion with others and give them the best travel experience – and along came Macs!
Growing up with parents who had travelled throughout Europe and Africa, I’ve always loved travelling. They instilled in me a love of adventure and a love of good local food. Our house was always full of treasures my parents had collected on their adventures and as soon as I was old enough, I couldn’t wait to a ...
