In 364 days I set out to discover Scotland in a self-powered expedition. Aged 23 and travelling alone to journey by sea kayak around Scotland I then returned home via the summit of the Munro Mountains using a bicycle to ride between. Taking 4 months by boat to cover over 1600km of coastline I set out to explore my home culture and landscape. Once on land I took 8 months across the winter to cycle 2500km, climb a total ascent of over 147000m over 282 mountains and cover 1750km under foot. The journey aimed to show that it is possible to have a big adventure upon your own doorstep and perhaps inspire others to get out into their own backyard.
Here are a couple of brief trip reports on the superb Sidetracked magazine and my video diary which I took along the way.
Keep an eye out for a book in future
