I grew up in Stirling, and now live in the outskirts of Edinburgh. I am married with 2 children, who are just starting school and preschool, and one spaniel. I enjoy getting out into the outdoors, and especially hillwalking and skiing. My other interests include swimming, reading, opera and taming an unruly vegetable plot. I spent some time in Africa and Asia working in my training, and I maintain links with Uganda in particular.
