Molly Doubleday

Molly is a freelance writer and wildlife conservationist, based in the Scottish Highlands.

A lifelong nature lover, she has pursued a career in wildlife conservation from the age of 13. This has involved many weird and wonderful outdoor experiences, including living on a remote seabird island (where she essentially got pooed on for a living...) and trekking through ancient Caledonian pine forest in the search of the elusive capercaillie.

Hiking and wildlife watching with her faithful border collie are her favorite pastimes in the Scottish Highlands. She is keen to explore many more Scottish islands and has already ticked Arran, Skye, Eigg, and Mull off her list.
