Expedition Team

Our team is the key to your incredible adventure


Explore the Highlands and Islands of Scotland with the benefit of scholars and a naturalist who weave a compelling narrative of Scottish life and times, turning what would merely be breathtaking sights into a living history. And, enjoy their company; you’ll find them highly engaging and fun to share a drink or dinner with, as well as a hike or a bicycle outing.

  • David Barnes

    Expedition Leader
    David studied history at the University of York in England and theology at the University of Wales. Research in the field of religious history (at Cardiff) followed on naturally. He has spent most of his professional life teaching history, most recently in adult education departments within the University of Wales where he has taught a wide variety of courses pertinent to the wider Atlantic world. In 1988, he made his first lecture-tour of the U.S. for the English Speaking Union. He has published extensively on Welsh history and topography–his most recent book being the Companion Guide to Wales (2005)–and is a frequent contributor of articles and reviews to Welsh cultural and literary journals. In the1990s, David was active in the field of international education, traveling worldwide and spending a year in the U.S. (in Atlanta and New York City). He speaks English and French in addition to his native Welsh.
