About Us

Our walks leader - Mary Gunn

Mary is a member of one of the local fishing families and has an extensive knowledge of the local and natural history of Holy Island. As a scientist and a former teacher she is well placed to pass on her enthusiasm for and understanding of her island home to you.

Mary has worked for Northumberland National Park in guided walks and participated in Defra funded projects in environmental interpretation where knowledge and experience was shared between three EU countries.

Now she runs Holy Island Hikes introducing visitors to the delights of this "jewel in the crown" of Northumberland.
