Iain holds the Mountain Leader and International Mountain Leader qualifications and worked for several years within the adventure travel industry both leading groups and training walking holiday leaders. He was the INWA national coach for Nordic Walking in Scotland and for many years worked supporting and training health walking groups throughout the country with the Scottish Government funded ‘Paths For All’ project.
