I'm a journalist and author living in Perthshire.

My first book, The Art of Coorie, is a Waterstones bestseller. It's been translated into French and Russian and looks at life in contemporary Scotland. You can buy it here.

I've written for the Guardian, Times and Sunday Times, Telegraph and many more.

My specialisms are travel, food and housing across features, news, interviews, investigations and columns. 

In 2021 I was named travel writer of the year at the Scottish Press Awards and regional property journalist of the year at the UK Property Press Awards. In 2019 I was the recipient of a travel writing award from Moniack Mhor, Scotland's creative writing centre, which enabled me to start work on my second book. 

I also chair events, in particular book festivals. If you'd like me to host or write for you please get in touch.
