Stewart Walker

Stewart Walker, a born-and-bred Orcadian from the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland, developed his lifelong passion for nature and wildlife from his father. A lighthouse keeper and ornithologist, his father taught Stewart how to observe the birds and marine life of the region throughout his life. A keen fisherman from a very young age, Stewart has led a life on and surrounding the sea; currently, when not working in the expedition field, he works as a crewman on Orkney pilot boats. He’s also very passionate about supporting the community and volunteering; he has served in the Territorial Army (National Guard) for eight years and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute for seven years as a crewman. In his downtime, Stewart is a keen clay pigeon shot and runner.
