Mike Townsend

Mike Townsend's love of hills and wild places began when, as a teenager, he spent walking holidays in The Lake District and Snowdonia. He moved to the Outer Hebrides in 1980 to work as a Geography teacher on Barra, and relocated to Uist in 1988. He has spent prolonged periods exploring the hills and coastlines of the islands, particularly the more remote and unfrequented areas.
