Adventure Shetland is owned and operated by Jon Pulley.
Jon is a native Shetlander and degree-qualified archaeologist with over a decade of experience in the tourist industry, who has a passion for sharing his knowledge of his homeland.
I've lived in Shetland all my life, apart from when I was studying in Glasgow for my MA Hons degree in Archaeology. I was able to focus my studies on my home islands to a large degree, and as such can offer an unparalleled level of knowledge on your tour
In my spare time I play rugby for Shetland and when I get the chance to go to the mainland I love to go hiking and climbing in the hills. I've got a few Munros under my belt, and always hope to add a few more whenever I'm "down south". I also help to organise the Up Helly Aa festival in January, serving on the festival committee
I'm a great believer in having fun. Life is too short for it not to be enjoyable, and while there is a need to be sensible sometimes, I feel that the most memorable experiences are the ones you've laughed and had the most fun doing. I aim to make your tour a proper adventure rather than just someone talking at you.
I completed my Hill and Moorland Leader training in 2021, under the watchful eye of Mountain Training
I'm a qualified Outdoor Emergency First Aider, having completed my course with the British Association of Ski Patrollers in October 2021
