Native of the Scottish Borders, guide, historian and film maker. Finalist of the prestigious 2018 Thistle Award as Scottish Borders Tourism Ambassador.
Since he was a young child, Mark has been called to roam the hills of the Scottish Borders. The timeless question, what is the difference between ‘us’ and ‘them’ lies at the heart of the border and ignited what became a personal quest for meaning. As Mark deepened his exploration, he became increasingly connected to the voice of the ancestors and the Spirits of the land. They led him to landscapes, events and lore long forgotten.
Mark’s heart races with each new discovery; a Medieval castle ruin, remote standing stones, an ancient burial site, the great yew trees, the powerful abbeys.
Mark’s passion is contagious and he is thrilled to share his knowledge and wisdom with like-minded adventurists. www.discoverscottishborders.com
