Davy Wright

Davy Wright

Most at home in the outdoors, preferably on top of something big and pointy. Scotland is Davy's playground, which is why he doesn’t mind getting wet. But winter is where it’s at. Hiking, scrambling, camping and a bit of climbing when I can. Sucker for a ridge. At a lower altitude he try getting out on his bike and run if he has to.

Davy describes himself as "a bit of a gear geek, maybe less of the bit. I like to see how things work or don’t!" In following this line Davy has become a respected and authoritative blogger over the last few years, working with many of the UK's major manufacturers and retailers.

Preferred activities: Hillwalking, camping, scrambling, trying to get better at climbing/ice climbing, cycling/mountain biking

Areas commonly visited: Lochaber, Cairngorms, Lake District

Q&A with the Magnetic Mountains Team

In the early part of 2016 a Kickstarter campaign started that peaked a lot of interest, especially mine. Here at My Outdoors we even tried to do our bit to help the team get to their target. We were very pleased when it did, I'm sure that the team at Everyfield Productions were a lot more jubilant. Since it’s release in Europe the film has been nominated for a prize at the International Mountain Film Graz, out of 115 films selected.
