Hi, I am David Shields and I started Discovery Outdoors to inspire others to get outside and enrich their lives through having some awesome adventures.
I am a fully qualified Mountain Leader, Rock climbing instructor and Canoe and Kayak coach, I also have a Post Graduate Certificate in outdoor education from Edinburgh University. I have been working as an outdoor professional for over ten years.
On this site you will find ideas for your own adventures, some inspiring interviews with other outdoor people and the odd gear review as well.
Please take the time to look around and feel free to comment.
I hope you enjoy reading it!
