Gilly McArthur

Hello there.

Thanks for dropping by.

I’m Gilly, born and bred in Bonnie Scotland, with a wee circumnavigate of Europe and the States to now nesting here in the wonderful Lakes, which I call home. I love the freedom that climbing, fell running and open water swimming give me and am passionate about showing people how much joy can be had from being outside, in any capacity.

I have a background in big corporate business, have had a fair share of life’s hard knocks and now am an illustrator, mindfulness practitioner and organiser of climbing and outdoor events. A more simple life, a total luddite in many respects, I’m delighted to be an ambassador to the WWW community.

You don’t have to live in a beautiful place or even have lots of spare time to find peace, joy and adventure in nature. Just kick off your shoes and head to a park. Close your eyes, breath deeply and listen.

You’ll find me, like most of the ambassadors, on a hillside or lake somewhere probably drinking great Cumbrian coffee and having a natter.

Welcome to our wonderful wild space.

It’s yours too!
