About Freelance Ranger

As well as a Ranger I am an artist and I like to bring this creativity into everything I do. I have a range of creative and fun activities which stand alone or can be combined to make a great day out. We have some great beaches in Dumfries and Galloway and because it is the Scottish year of coast and waters I have created some lovely beach experiences including rockpooling and creating some really big beach art. I work from what kind of outdoor experience you and the people with you want to create something unique and memorable for you to enjoy.

Many of my Experiences allow you, your family and friends to create your own base with shelters and a campfire. From your base we can start to make dens, hang hammocks, and work on some environmental art. We can cook on our campfire and explore the area looking at minibeasts, trees and everything around us.

If you want to go out at night you can join me for one of my Darkness and Stargazing Experiences and even a star picnic. I am a Biosphere Dark Sky Ranger and work in the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park and the surrounding area especially the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere. I specialise in visual stargazing so that you can go back home and be able to find the stars and constellations we have seen together. You will be able to share some of the science and stories knowledge we have talked about with your friends too. My Experiences involve more than just seeing the stars they are sensory experiences where you immerse yourself in the darkness. Spaces feel different, there are the natural noises of the world around you and the lack of human noise. Food tastes even better when outside so can you imagine food eaten outside in the dark?
