Jim Sutherland has never found it difficult to dream about adventures, whether at night when asleep or with his eyes open wide. This approach has taken him all over the Scottish Highlands where he grew up; Spain, the Alps, the Southwest of the US by hiking, climbing, skiing and more recently by bike.

Jim has taken a break from directing nineonesix-guiding to return to full time teaching at his local high school in the spectacular Cairngorm National Park. This means more time with his family and to have even more time for adventures of his own.

At times Jim is available to guide on a freelance basis, this autumn and next spring he will be offering guided bikepacking at weekends from here in Grantown on Spey. For now you can still keep up with what he is up to by following his blog here.
