The Beyond Adventure Team:

Beyond Adventure is owned and managed by Stephen Macdonald who has worked full-time in outdoor education for the past 18 years.  He holds British Association of Ski Instructors Telemark and Nordic qualifications, is a British Canoe Union Level 5 Coach as well as holding Scottish Mountain Leader Training Boards Summer and Winter Awards. 

His particular passion is the outdoors and those activities which take place in an expedition or journey context, hence the emphasis placed on ski touring and open canoeing in Beyond Adventure programmes. 

Stephen Macdonald acts as Technical Advisor to many Outdoor Centres across the UK in both open canoeing and kayaking. If you would be interested in this service please email Stephen at Beyond Adventure with details of your requirements.

Biscuit joins us as full time staff for a fifth year. He has paddled in many different countries but luckily for Beyond Adventure he has made his home in Aberfeldy for the time being.

Biscuit enjoys doing anything in the outdoors - the wilder the better!

Laura has returned for another busy season. We welcome her cheery smile & camp fire cooking to Beyond Adventure. Laura is a Level 3 Canoe Coach but her other qualificatiosn see her leading groups on bikes or on the hill - or a mixture of both.
Dan - Big Dan - joins Biscuit & Laura to complete the full-time Beyond Adventure team. Dan has worked as a raft guide previously but thankfully now he has made the correct choice of craft. Dan is a Level 3 Coach in both Kayak & Canoe and is working towards his 5* assessment.
Anna Gordon has left full time work at Beyond Adventure to pursue other business interests in the local area. She will, however, be available to work with particular groups - we hope this will be more often than not. Anna has been with us almost from the beginning and so we hope to keep her experience within the team.

Holding the fort when we're out there is Julie Rhys (and sometimes Steve) who looks after all things administrative.

Our team is further enhanced by our associate staff; key amongst whom are Stuart Bell, Vic Rastall, Christel Langeveld & Tom Sibbald.
