I have written four full size books and dozens of articles about the story of my life starting a deer farm, working with deer and all its up and downs, a history of how and why people started to keep deer in parks, and another one all about – you guessed it - deer: their biology and connection with people.
In the course of my life I reckon I’ve done over a hundred TV broadcasts as well as loads of radio and written media work. I’ve also worked with my deer to produce dozens of television commercials and feature films such as The Queen, Outlander, Highlander and many others.
No regrets - and I’m still having a great life, sometimes struggling financially to develop an unsubsidised deer farm when other farms were supported but also setting up other farms all over the world; writing books about it and ten years ago becoming the first man in Scotland to donate a kidney to a stranger!
