A professional ice hockey player turned mountaineer and photographer – Tristan Cameron-Harper’s love of the outdoors is bringing him north for Foraging Fortnight. He’ll be travelling over the Cairngorms, past the broch of Carn Luath, by the harbour and river of Dunbeath and on to Orkney, and sending stories and images along the way. He describes in conversation the call of the outdoors. “Not everyone is aware how easy it is to explore some of the most beautiful places in the world, especially Scotland,” he says.

“I want to show people how accessible it is for them to experience this beauty that they believed would be impossible to see, and if they are unable to experience it in person, then they can at least do so via my photography.”
