About Holly

When did you start working for LtL and what does your job involve?

I started with LtL in September 2019, I work from home in the North East of Scotland. My primary role is to look after the North as part of delivering the Local School Nature Grant training for schools. Although I do enjoy dropping in on the Stirling office from time to time to catch up with the team and help deliver further training and develop resources for our courses.

The 3 experiences that have best equipped you for this role?


20 plus years working in the outdoor industry. From a rafting guide to forest school practitioner, I have done it all!


A wealth of experience working with schools and training teachers in a variety of outdoor settings, helping them understand and improve their provision of outdoor learning.


I grew up in the wild West coast and thrived on being outdoors in all weathers. You can have as much fun in the pouring rain in a muddy puddle as you can splashing in the sea on a warm sunny day.

Holly’s LtL Experience

What has been your best day at LtL and why?

Well I’ve only just started but what has become apparent to me from my first day is the passion and enthusiasm everyone has for what they do. I instantly was made to feel welcome and knew straight away that I am amongst likeminded people.

Why a surfboard?

This is my favourite board, handed over from a friend. Surfing felt so exotic and far away when I was a lad. I always wanted to be a surfer and through my travels I got the bug and have surfed ever since. Its great to have found that Scotland has some great surf breaks and not to mention miles and miles of untouched coastline. Surfing is a fantastic way to get out into nature, also a great way to leave everything else behind and live life in the moment.
