Mairi Gilmour


mairi-gilmourMy name is Mairi Gilmour and I am from the Black Isle in the Highlands of Scotland. Living 20 minutes from Cromarty where Hugh Miller lived I have been selected for this voyage to represent young people in the area who have a passion for geology. Having just finished sixth year at Fortrose Academy, I will be starting at Glasgow University in September to study Earth Science. This past year I have also studied Advanced Higher Geography and Higher Geology at school and found them both fascinating.

I hope to bring enthusiasm and an interest in geology to this voyage. I love meeting new people and learning about our planet is fascinating. Also simply spending time outside whilst having adventures puts a smile upon my face.

Following Hugh Miller’s Journey I hope to learn more about the man himself but also about the amazing discoveries he made whilst completing his voyage. In this once in a lifetime experience I also hope to learn more about geology in Scotland and share my knowledge and passion with others.

I think it will be a wonderful week and I can’t wait to set sail on this historical journey.
