About Me

I am Marcus, a former secondary school History and RE teacher. My love of history started at an early age exploring the castles and landscapes of my native Sussex. My wife and I moved up to the Cairngorms a few years ago and I became a stay at home dad to my youngest son. During this time I immersed myself with the incredible history and folklore of the Strathspey area as well as developing my foraging skills. Launching Secret Strathspey has been a dream come true and I am passionate about delivering amazing experiences to both locals and visitors.
