Hi I’m Iona, let me share my story with you…

In 2018 as very much a beginner to hill walking, I set up a group on Facebook to arrange social hikes to connect with like minded people. Working in a busy role as a nurse, I wanted to use social media to show that no matter how busy life gets, adventure and the outdoors can still be part of our every day. Over time that group has grown and evolved and I’ve met some wonderful people along the way.

I’m now taking the next steps to build on the valuable lessons I continually learn about the positive impact the outdoors has on our physical and mental wellbeing. To help even more people safely and competently experience the outdoors, ‘Iona’s Adventures’ is therefore expanding to become a social enterprise to provide outdoor skills courses. Surplus profits will be fed back in to the social enterprise to help as many people as possible – we all have the right to access the outdoors.

Determined to end 2020 on a positive note for myself and so many others, I’d love any support you can offer in sharing this new and exciting business venture. Whether you send the website link to friends, tag me on Instagram, offer business advice or donate towards the inevitable start up costs. Any involvement from the wider community is greatly received.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates and information coming very soon!
