As a keen outdoor enthusiast, Patrick Baker spends the majority of his free time walking, climbing or scrambling in the Scottish hills. This passion for the outdoors has led to several expeditions in major mountain ranges across Europe but closer to home, time spent in the mountains of the West Highlands and the Cairngorms and the hills of the Central Scotland is an ongoing source of interest and enjoyment.
