Iona grew up in the Scottish countryside. But it wasn’t until she moved to Aviemore that she started truly exploring the outdoors.
Hiking. Snowboarding. Mountain biking. All while working as a full-time nurse.
Iona’s Adventures are your adventures, too.
As a nurse, Iona knew this all too well. So when she started her walking group in 2018, she wanted to show that an adventure is what you make of it. No matter how big or small.
Iona also liked the idea of connecting people while connecting with nature. She invited people to join her hill walks, and share their experiences together online. Iona’s Adventures was born.
Her proudest achievements so far include hiking up Sgor Gáoith in the Cairngorms, completing the Great Glencoe Challenge, and going on her first walk with her baby.
More adventures await. In the meantime, her walking group is out there, still swapping stories and sharing good company.
