Life is an adventure.
Welcome to our story – the story of the Wild Pioneers.
We’ve spent the last few years chasing our dream, trying to figure out where to live in the world – and when we finally pinned it down, where we wanted to live in Scotland.
We met when working in Edinburgh, and that’s where this adventure first began.
It started out as a few weekends here and there – trips to the mountains, to the sea, to wild camp, to simply be outdoors.
Every chance we got, we’d get as far from our day jobs as possible – and then race back again in the precious little time that we had.
From there, somehow we managed to quit our jobs and go full time on the road – learning to build our businesses and support ourselves without being tied to a job anymore.
That took us all over the world, and then it brought us right back to Scotland.
And now, here we are. We found where we wanted to live in Scotland. And that’s where you’ll find us.
In the mountains, living our own adventure.
