World wandering nomad having annoyed the residents of over 100 countries. Started the adventure journey way back in the late 70’s when he started wandering across the Scottish mountains as a kid. The army provided a decade and a half of adventure and development before taking a 6-year journey as a corporate suit to learn about the World of business. Being a slow learner this should have only been a couple of years but Pete got lost. He eventually found the route back to full-time adventure in 2003 when the opportunity to take over the Rafting company came along. Since then our company has expanded not just in Scotland but around the World with operations in Spain, Morocco and Pete’s current passion, the Rafting company where he gets folk as crazy as him to take on extreme challenges to cross deserts, countries and rather large mountain ranges. Peter is the owner of the company.
